Here Are Signs That You May Be Suffering From PTSD
What you're going through is totally normal but should be closely monitored.
If you've lived through a traumatic experience, your mind and body may be reacting in seemingly really weird ways.
Common symptoms include having recurring distressing dreams, being irritable, feeling like you're in a daze and experiencing a lot of guilt.
But, if these symptoms last for more than a month, you might have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
One important thing to keep in mind, according to Heimper, is that you don't have to meet all of the criteria for PTSD or ASD to qualify for help.
And it's extremely important to know that that what you're feeling is totally normal.
And if the symptoms start interfering with your daily routine or just feel too much to handle, that's when you should consider seeking help.
To heal, Heimper says, "We must rebuild our minds."
It's not unusual to want to avoid anything that reminds you of the event.
For kids, PTSD can show up in different ways.
In fact, it's a good idea for people of all ages to closely monitor their feelings.
In the U.S., you can find help for ASD or PTSD through many organizations and services.
