How Do I Know If I Have or Someone I Love Has PTSD?

Fear, anxiety, anger, depression, and guilt are all common reactions we have to trauma. Recovery does not occur overnight. For some of us, these reactions persist and affect us for months, even years. If this is the case, treatment for PTSD may be necessary.

The experience of PTSD is different for everyone. Typical symptoms of PTSD may include feeling detached or emotionally numb, as well as, nightmares, severe anxiety, or flashbacks. Sometimes we notice the symptoms in ourselves and, sometimes, it’s the ones close to us who notice.

Here is a list of questions to help you determine if you or someone you care about may be experiencing PTSD.

Only a doctor with specialized training can diagnose PTSD and determine the appropriate treatment. To connect with someone who can help, call 877-669-2332.
