What It Feels Like To Have PTSD



Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events.

Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks, and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt.

They may also have problems sleeping, such as insomnia, and find concentrating difficult.

These symptoms are often severe and persistent enough to have a significant impact on the person’s day-to-day life.

This is what people who have PTSD say it feels like..

It’s constantly looking over your shoulder and having difficulty trusting people… It’s not just something you can walk away from.

Triggers can come from anywhere at any time… a smell, a look/ glance, a vibe, a dream… how someone treats you. You are unable, as hard as you try, to turn it off.

You know that feeling you get when someone jumps out and scares you and you are on high alert for a few minutes? That alertness never goes away for me.

It’s like being trapped in a time capsule. Your surroundings change, but you’re forever in the state of your trauma

It’s like when you watch a scary movie and you’re on edge the entire time… except that’s how you live, all day, every day. You’re literally afraid of everything.

Do you have PTSD?

How does it affect your life?
