Are you suffering from the symptoms of PTSD?
After your accident, have you been left with bouts of depression, anxiety, stress and other ailments that are having an effect on your life? If you are, then you could be suffering from the symptoms of PTSD and could be eligible to receive personal injury compensation.
Since the turn of the millennium, Accident Advice Helpline has been providing assistance to those who have been involved in accidents and have suffered the effects of PTSD. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, to name it properly, can be caused by the accident or by witnessing an accident that someone else was involved in.
Needing help with your emotional state
Suffering from PTSD is not like other conditions brought about by an accident. For starters there are no bandages, plasters, casts or other visible signs that you have suffered. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects the mind and emotional state and can leave the victim feeling isolated and alone.
There are many symptoms that can be markers for PTSD. Here are just a few:
- Feelings of dread and paranoia
- Increased heart rate even when resting
The above list is just a sample of the effects that can accompany PTSD. The symptoms of PTSD can vary greatly from person to person but one thing is clear, the ability of the victim to interact with those around them is usually seriously impaired.
Those suffering from PTSD can find it difficult to be sociable and will generally avoid attending public gatherings, even to the point of feigning illness to do so. They will also be nervous in the company of others and may have difficulty eating. As we have mentioned, the list of symptoms is not an exhaustive one and varies from one person to another.
