June 27 was National PTSD Awareness Day. Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a condition that occurs when people experience a traumatizing event or crisis. These traumatizing events can include but are not limited to military combat, death in the family, a car accident, any kind of abuse or being institutionalized in a mental hospital or prison. Anyone can experience PTSD including children. People that are not able to cope with the fear from being traumatize will continue to feel anxious, stress or frightened even when they are no longer in danger or enduring the trauma . It can be chronic or short term. A memory, song, person, place or thing can cause them to re-experience the painful event. When this occurs a person can experience a rush of physical or emotional feelings. The disturbing symptoms can cause depression and anxiety to the point of isolation and avoidant of people and every day life. Does this sound familiar? Does this remind you of a loved one? There is help. You are not alone. There are community resources that can assist you with diagnosing and counseling.
