For your first appt at the Raeford Rd location come to this address:
Some time ago, you witnessed a terrifying ordeal. You assumed that not being a victim, it will be just another experience you will forget. In the aftermath and caught off guard from the nightmarish impact of the traumatic event, you discover you are not yourself, and you just can’t seem to get “back on your feet”.
Maybe you yourself were the victim. Maybe you have tried to get back to “normal” but none of your own methods have worked.
What you saw or what you experienced was not forgotten. Your life isn’t proceeding as you expected. Memories haunt you and grip you with fear. It is time to consult a qualified therapist because it is very possible that you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The Shell Shock!
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an incapacitating psychological condition that develops after you experienced or witnessed a harrowing, heartrending, or petrifying event. It was once called “battle fatigue” and “shell shock” having been commonly observed among war veterans who have been part of disturbing experiences. If you have been a part of or witnessed an extremely shocking event -violent attacks, massive deaths due to natural calamities, a plane crash or car accidents – you are predisposed to PTSD, so don’t ignore the signs.
If you have gone through or witnessed such an event, watch out for signs and symptoms that would indicate that you are more profoundly affected than you think you are. Do you wake up in the middle of night in cold sweat like it is happening all over again? Do you experience flashbacks due to uncontrollable thoughts and severe anxiety to the extent that even mere hints trigger recollections and startle responses? Do not ignore these signs because the ultimate degree of PTSD is hard to predict or realistically estimated.
If You Think You Have PTSD
If you are a victim or a survivor of a harrowing experience or a witness, don’t underestimate the impact on your emotional and mental health. Long after the ordeal, you may be left with emotional and mental scars that is affect your life in some of the most negative ways!
