Most of us are able to understand when someone returning from combat is suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It might make sense to us that someone who has experienced a violent crime, such as rape or murder also has PTSD. And it probably wouldn’t take much to understand how a child or teen who has been abused might suffere from PTSD as well. But the fact is, many of us have experienced trauma, in one form or another, and may be dealing with the symptoms of PTSD.
Whether we have been in a car accident, suffered the loss of a
loved one or lived through a ‘natural disaster,’ and depending on how well we are able to cope with trauma, anyone may be living with the syptoms of PTSD. It may be difficult to sleep. It’s hard to stay focused. A lack of trust, even on those we love…PTSD can steal our lives away in little bits and pieces.
