Post-traumatic stress disorder is actually more common than many people think, and it is perfectly natural to be suffering from this after any sort of condition. You may not realise that this is what you are suffering from, but if the feelings aren’t going away then you should see your doctor and find out.
- If you keep reliving the event. It is normal to go over the event in your mind for a little while after it has happened, to allow you to deal with exactly what happened, but if you are still replaying the event over and over months after it has occurred, you do need to get help to move forward.
- If you are still angry or sad. After a certain amount of time you should stop feeling angry or sad about what happened, and just accept it as part of your history. You may still think about it from time to time, but the strong feelings associated with it should lessen as time passes. If not, you may need to speak to a professional.
- If you are not yourself. Some people don’t have specific issues relating to the accident itself, but may just not be feeling right, perhaps a little depressed or otherwise not the same as they were before, months after the event. If you are failing to return to normal, think about speaking to someone.
- If you struggle to do things related to the event. If your trauma was a car accident, for example, you should try to get help if you are still unable to get back behind the wheel a long time after the accident happened.
