Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can result from exposure to trauma:
- Re-Experiencing (repeatedly reliving) the trauma. This can be in the form of nightmares, intrusive memories or images, flashbacks, or intense emotional or physical reactions to remember the trauma. These symptoms frequently leave you feeling like you are going crazy.
- Hyperarousal. This includes sleep problems, anger/irritability, and concentration problems, always feeling on edge or on guard, jumpiness, and being easily startled. Increased arousal could also include
physical symptoms, such as pounding heartbeat, sweating, dizziness, and rapid breathing. These symptoms keep you stressed and eventually exhausted.
- Avoidance of trauma reminders. This may include trying not to think or talk about the trauma, or
trying not to have feelings about it. It may also include staying away from activities, people, places, and
situations that bring up trauma memories. These symptoms leave you feeling apart from the people and
surroundings in your life.
- Emotional numbing. This includes losing interest in activities that used to be important to you, feeling detached or estranged from important people in your life, feeling unable to have normal emotions, and losing a sense that you have a long-term future. These symptoms diminish your relationships with those closest to you.
