image for blog entry

Are you a combat solder, fireman, police officer, or EMT? Do you re-experience traumatic events, intrusive thoughts, visual or auditory flashbacks that leave you easily startled, Do you struggle with negative thoughts about what happen, Do you have feelings of isolation or self-blame? Those living with P.T.S.D persistently re-experience the traumatic event, leading to both psychological and physiological responses that can create distress or functional impairment. Events such as retirement, separation from a spouse, and the sudden loss of a child or another loved one could trigger mental health conditions, nightmares, and PTSD. Many turn to drugs and alcohol to numb and blunt that trauma and reduce the vividness of flashbacks in nightmares in order to get sleep. As a response, PTSD tends to be treated with drugs and behavioral interventions that address issues such as alcohol abuse and excessive anger rather than the underlying cause of these behaviors.
