Post-traumatic stress disorder is a type of anxiety disorder. It can occur after you’ve seen or experienced a traumatic event. PTSD changes the body’s response to stress. It affects the stress hormones and chemicals that carry information between the nerves.

It is not known why traumatic events…

Let’s see:

  • Strong, uncomfortable reactions to situations that remind you of the event

  • Emotional “numbing,” or feeling as though you don’t care about anything

  • Feeling detached

  • Having a lack of interest in normal activities

  • Showing less of your moods

  • Avoiding places, people, or thoughts that remind you of the event

  • Feeling like you have no future

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Startling easily

  • Having an exaggerated response to things that startle you

  • Feeling more aware

  • Feeling irritable or having outbursts of anger

  • Having trouble falling or staying asleep

So I have experienced all of these symptoms within the last year, but I think I must be getting better because I am able to stop most of them when I identify the trigger for them.  At least I feel like I am better.
