“As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands; One for helping yourself while the other for helping others.”
The aim of the post is to encourage us all to deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder more confident. By talking openly I hope things will change eventually and breakdown all the stereotypes and take the taboo out that affects us in each and every manner these days.
What causes PTSD?
Before we jump to the conclusion/result, let’s take a walk through the entire concept of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. First of all, you need to understand what are the root causes of PTSD? Now there are times when people experience a threatening or traumatic event and your nervous system responds by triggering the fight. After a while, your body becomes normal, but in case the upset doesn’t fade out and you feel stuck in the painful memories and a constant sense of vulnerability, chances are there that you may be suffering from PTSD. Traumatic events like:-
- Natural Disaster
- Car/ plane crashes
- Sudden death of a loved one
- Sexual or physical abuse
- Childhood neglect
PTSD is something that’s not restricted to soldiers alone, anyone who has experienced such a traumatic event in their life can leave an emotional scar behind. Speaking about the cure, you can seek help from several veteran professionals, counselors and their PTSD books and workbooks. Other than this, keep reading the post.
3 PTSD Stories To Help Yourself Heal
Find a healthy escape
As a thirteen-year-old, I have been scarred from overexposure to violent conditions. And as a result, despair and hopelessness have become a part of who I am today. A few pieces and parts of me are known while others remain still unknown, trying out the PTSD workbooks have provided a great help in putting the pieces back together.
Hope never dies
One of my veteran friends said that “ Success comes in the form of a veteran’s life, not only being saved but also finding a new purpose.” After going through a few PTSD books written by well-known authors, he completely changed his perspective and today he assists in combating trauma support groups in the area.
Help each other
“When PTSD comes, I go out to nature.” The moment I start feeling sad, I hold on to the glad and that’s my loved ones. My family is the only reason why I continue to live and love. Although PTSD impacts on each and every relationship, but sharing things openly with each other has helped me a lot.
