Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD, CPTSD)

The formation of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), can be traced back to instances where a person experiences or witnesses a terrifying event or chronically experiences traumatic episodes over which they had little or no control.

PTSD is marked by intrusive memories that often come in the form of flashbacks, chronic avoidance of anything that might serve as a reminder, similar trigger to your trauma; severe impulsive behaviour, emotions that even heighten vulnerability severely and changes in thinking patterns, mood swings, alongside hyperarousal over benign stimuli.

C-PTSD occurs when there is frequent exposure to traumatic events such as childhood abuse resulting in issues related to cognitive distortion regarding sense of self, others; Fragmentation/disruption on memory processing/recall, bodily sensations & emotional dysregulation, specifically shame, guilt, feeling detached, negative self-concept, opinions towards others & persistent sense hopelessness, stockiness, trapped imprints in mind & body.

Improvement can result from therapeutic approaches using medication alone or in combination with therapies like SE, EMDR, CBT, Trauma-Focused CBT; talk therapy/Somatic Trauma Therapy like IFS (Yoga & Meditation), which emphasises on integrating split parts, states inside them; cultivating awareness & mindfulness, resolving inner conflicts & thus, emerging way healed than before. The road ahead may seem difficult yet, with appropriate support and treatment many lead quality lives despite surviving trauma.
