Signs and Symptoms
If you or someone you know has survived a traumatic experience, keep an eye out for these symptoms. Only a medical professional like Dr. Nisha can diagnose PTSD, but self-identification or familiarity with common signs of distress can help you or others seek the help they need.
Symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder may Include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Musculoskeletal & Cardiovascular irregularities or distress
The Decision to Seek Help
If you or a loved one are experiencing the above or other symptoms associated with PTSD, or have gone through a traumatic experience from which the after effects are impacting your quality of life, it’s time to seek professional help.
While some may view counseling as an admission of weakness or victim mentality, nothing could be further from the truth.
In fact, the decision to get help shows tremendous strength and courage. When we choose to seek support, we exhibit a strength that most people will never understand. A person is unable to admit their weaknesses and get help without that decision coming from a position of power.
