PTSD completely changes the lives of everyone who it afflicts. One minute you’re living a perfectly normal, happy life and the next something absolutely awful, that you could never have imagined being forced to go through, becomes your new reality. Suddenly the sights, sounds and smells that accompanied your life in the years prior to this tragedy become triggers that cause horrible memories of this tragedy to come back terrifyingly and unrelentingly.
PTSD is often misconstrued as only affecting war veterans. The reality is that anyone who has suffered severe trauma can also suffer from PTSD. Moreover, PTSD can affect different people in different ways. Tragically, people can sometimes become embarrassed by their PTSD symptoms, and not reach out for the help they need as a result.
