PTSD Challenge-Day#6 of the 25 Day Push-up Challenge



DAY #6 of the PTSD Challenge.
“Not all wounds are visible”
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is often associated with military combat, but it can affect anyone who has experienced a traumatic event. Do you know the signs? Our Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall decodes the disorder on The Doctors.
About The Challenge..
I accepted a nomination by
Gregg Petersen
to 25 push-ups for 25 days challenge to hopefully raise awareness for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety, and depression that drive people to take their own lives.
The rules are simple:
*Once you are nominated your 25 days start the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 25 push-ups even if you have to drop to your knees to get 25.
*Every day you must nominate a different person.
Let’s hope by doing this we can build awareness for anyone who is suffering from a mental illness, you are not alone and we are here for you.
Don’t be afraid to speak out!!

DAY #5 of the PTSD Challenge…
The Silent Epidemic
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
Who’s at risk
If you have had depression or anxiety in the past, or you do not receive much support from family or friends, you’re more susceptible to developing PTSD after a traumatic event.
There may also be a genetic factor involved in PTSD. For example, having a parent with a mental health problem is thought to increase your chances of developing the condition.
