PTSD Can Happen to Anyone

Current estimates are that as many as 70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetimes and that as many as 20% of people that experience a traumatic event will develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a result, it is helpful to learn to recognize the symptoms associated with PTSD.

The most common symptoms of PTSD include:
  • Recurrent and intrusive memories of the traumatic event
  • Flashbacks of the traumatic event.
  • Recurrent dreams or nightmares about the traumatic event
  • Intense distress resulting from anything that triggers memories.
  • Avoiding anything that reminds you of the trauma.
  • Becoming emotionally “numb”.
  • Blocking out memories of the trauma.
  • Irrational guilt around the traumatic event.
  • Persistent negative emotions such as fear, horror, anger, guilt, and shame.
  • Persistent inability to feel positive emotions such as love or happiness.
  • Loss of interest in activities.
  • Having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.
  • Becoming easily angered or agitated.
  • Becoming hyper-vigilant or easily startled.
  • Becoming depressed and anxious.
  • Reckless or self-destructive behavior.
