Trauma changes life decisively .
Trauma is often experienced as tension, pressure, stress and depression.
Affected people usually wait a long time for professional help. The result: they develop a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- Signs of PTSD are:
- Hypervigilance (overexcitability)
- Dissociation (persistent or recurring sense of detachment, looking at from outside, etc.)
What other symptoms can occur can be found in the examples given below.
If a person experiences a situation that affects their sense of security both physically and socially, the mind becomes overwhelmed. This eventually leads to debilitating physical stress reactions. This is called post-traumatic stress disorder.
The processes in the brain, which are responsible for the development of post-traumatic stress disorder, are not yet fully understood.
It's not a sign of weakness, it's not your fault if you develop a post-traumatic stress disorder. You have no control over it, because these symptoms come automatically. How many symptoms someone develops is very individual.
Life is not what it was anymore. Often, others notice it more than you do.
- In a jaw treatment, the dentist invites the patient to look at the great result of his work in the mirror. He has removed a pyrex there. The woman gets a shock, because she sees a big hole in the upper jaw. Since then, the picture keeps coming and it starts to shake every time.
- A man fell asleep whilst driving and crashed ito a guardrail. Since thenhe has been unable to drive as whenever he does he relives the accident.
- Whilst a woman was making morning coffee and breakfast for her children her husband told her "By the way, I’m leaving you and the children. I have met the love of my life“. Since that time, she can no longer stand the smell of coffee and hates all men.
