It is never easy to deal with traumatic experiences and resulting PTSD symptoms. There are 3 in South Africa that can help you begin your healing journey. Although each person’s experience of trauma and PTSD is unique, there are some common symptoms which include:

  • Feeling unable to cope with your daily life
  • Distracting yourself from horrible memories with work or hobbies
  • Noticing tastes, smells or sounds connected to the trauma
  • Experiencing emotions that you went through during the trauma
  • Experiencing depression as a result of your traumatic experience
  • Being jumpy or easily startled
  • Feeling unable to trust anyone
  • Overwhelming negative emotions such as guilt, shame, sadness and anxiety

If you have any of these symptoms, reach out for help – you don’t have to be alone in your struggle. There is hope on the horizon and people who understand what you are going through.
