post traumatic stress disorder/trauma

We often organize our entire life around a single traumatic event. Post traumatic stress disorder can occur after any single overwhelming and disturbing episode or after a series of these episodes. Symptoms of PTSD include: recurrent and unwanted flashbacks of the experience, periods of insomnia, hypervigilance and extreme caution, nightmares, distress, irritability, and unprovoked anger outbursts. Physical reactions such as cold, sweat, shaking, trouble breathing, dizziness, and rapid heartbeat are also common. Trauma victims and those who suffer PTSD are often voiceless about their innermost fears. Yet the impact of the trauma is evident in their behaviors, feelings of shame, and in their strained relationships with others. Explore the large and small events that have induced fear based living in your life and learn how to change your neurological system and physiological reactions to transform the trauma you experienced.
