Do You Have Trauma Issues?

Trauma is the emotional response of a person to an extremely negative and overwhelming event. The effects of a traumatic experience can be so severe that they intervene with an individual’s ability to live a normal life. When someone is dealing with trauma issues, help may be needed to treat the dysfunction and stress caused by the painful event that has led to this situation and to restore the individual to a state of mental and emotional well-being and health.

trauma issuesAfter experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, some people become depressed, anxious, while for others, copying with day to day life and their responsibilities can become nearly impossible. Some people are able to adapt and resume their normal lives after being distressed for a period of time (weeks or months). However, others need professional help and therapy to successfully overcome that situation and regain their mental and emotional health.

If you have gone through a traumatic experience, you may be struggling with bad memories, upsetting emotions, or a sense of constant danger. Trauma can be caused by a number of negative events that cause a lasting impact on the victim’s emotional and mental stability. One doesn’t need to be involved in the traumatic experience. People who have witnessed a negative event can also deal with trauma issues. Sources of trauma can be psychological as well as violent in nature. Some common sources of trauma include:

  • Witnessing an act of violence

  • Severe injury or illness
  • Loss of a loved one
