Symptoms of PTSD

  • Hallucination or Flashbacks – A prevalent symptom of PTSD is revisiting the unfortunate event again and again. Even though the bad has happened and you’ve recovered from it long ago, you will keep going back in time and feel the same way you did at the time of the event. Or, you might re-create the same event and think of it as real. 
  • Ominous Dreams – Though it take place in the subconscious mind, dreams can have effects in real life. People with PTSD are prone to nightmares. The frequency usually is high, and there could be a week, a month, or a year of ominous dreams. 
  • Freaking Out Almost Every Time – What PTSD mostly damages is your ability to measure the degree of a situation and act upon it. Even a casual incident can send a chill down your spine.  
  • Isolation – When you discover something is wrong in you, the first thing you do is lock yourself down. It’s very similar to people with PTSD. They create a boundary around them, strong enough not to collapse. So, they barely meet people or entertain anyone.  

Besides these, people with PTSD may also – 

  • Feel emotionally numb
  • A sense of extreme guilt, depression or worry
  • Lose interest in activities that they liked earlier
  • May find it hard to remember the mishap.
