Do you suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Post traumatic stress disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is caused by witnessing or being part of a frightening or shocking event, affecting your day-to-day life and productivity. Those who suffer from PTSD often struggle with frequent, intense, and often debilitating anxiety. With such strong symptoms and without positive coping skills, people turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms like substance and alcohol use.

There are many healthy ways to cope with the PTSD symptoms of anxiety, flashbacks, sleep disturbances, and mood disorders, which are successful and can lessen the frequency and/or make symptoms more tolerable.

Below are some positive behavioral changes you can make to experience relief from your PTSD symptoms.

Traumatic events can cause physical symptoms like sweating, chest pains, stomach issues, and unexplained aches and pains, which are all symptoms of PTSD. For professional help in treating your PTSD symptoms, contact Compassionate Psychiatric Services today at 469-200-4093.
