Traumatic events such as assaults, accidents, illness, divorce, sexual, emotional, and physical abuse can sometimes leave a person frightened and distressed. Any event or series of events that raise a feeling of hopelessness and vulnerability can trigger Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), especially when the event seems uncontrollable and unpredictable.
When your sense of faith and happiness is shattered, you may likely feel disconnected and unbalanced. Whatever the reason behind your PTSD, with genuine treatment and support, you can learn to manage your emotional baggage, reduce sad memories, and move forward with positive lifestyle choices.
Signs and Symptoms of PTSD
- Flashbacks of traumatic events
- Intense physical or mental reactions
- Avoidance and numbing
- A loss of interest in activities
- A sense of limited future
- Sleeping difficulty
- Reckless behavior
- Difficulty concentrating
- Depression and hopelessness

Recovering from these symptoms is gradual and possible with PTSD counseling. Healing doesn’t occur overnight nor do the painful memories disappear in the first place, but there are certain ways to reduce anxiety, fear and the recurrence of negative past memories.
