Why do I have PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a severe anxiety disorder that occurs after going through or witnessing a traumatic event. You can struggle with the symptoms of PTSD due to:

  • Sexual assault
  • Physical abuse 
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Automobile accidents
  • Experiencing a crime, such as a home invasion

While anyone of any age can struggle with PTSD, this condition commonly affects first responders and military personnel, who face natural disasters, accidents, combat, or violence on a regular basis. 

When should I get help for PTSD?

PTSD can lead to life-altering behaviors and thoughts that lower your quality of life, affect your work performance, and break apart your relationships. The caring team at Thriving Mind Psychology can treat you for any of the following PTSD symptoms:

  • Disinterest in sex
  • Feeling detached or numb
  • Feeling jumpy, jittery, or easily frightened
  • Frequent nightmares that affect your sleep
  • Avoiding situations or places that bring back frightening memories

The PTSD symptoms you experience may be minor and infrequent or more severe, to the point where you have thoughts of suicide (seek emergency medical attention if you’re suicidal). Since PTSD can progress and become serious, the team at Thriving Mind Psychology encourages you to come in for an evaluation right away.
