Mental Health Trauma
Mental Health Trauma is a result of battering, witnesses a horrible attack, enduring an accident/incident, terrorist, and so on. Anytime a person is subject to violence, it brings forth trauma, whether it is in small doses or extreme doses.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorders (war shock) was only linked to combat, but recently mental health experts are finding that more individuals are subject to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). People that suffer from Multiple Personality Disorder often have posttraumatic stress disorder underneath.
It is often difficult to detect this since people with Multiple Personality Disorder alter or change personalities. Some of the personality types may not illustrate any symptoms of mental illness, while others may illustrate extreme symptoms.
Most patients with Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) were subject to extreme abuse as a child, which means these people suffered severe trauma from the get-go. Now, the people that do not have Multiple Personality would have to undergo traumatic experiences or witness traumatic attacks. It depends on the mind, but some people can witness an accident and it will not faze them, while others can witness a similar accident and it could lead them into PTSD symptoms.
This type of mind often suffers with other problems, and the problem has not been detected, while the person that was not affected had excellent coping skills. The person affected survived traumas long before this accident took place.
Trauma affects us all differently and some more than others. When a person endures trauma, it is essential to get help immediately, since trauma often plays with the mind. A person will often endure sleepless nights, nightmares, anxiety, panic attacks and so forth. The issues bring forth more complications since the nerves are tortured and the person might resort to alcohol or drugs to relieve the symptoms.
Flashbacks are common with trauma patients, and flashbacks can be dangerous since the person loses contact with them here and now. The patient will go back in time to the event or one of the series of events that caused the trauma, and they often stay stuck there for a few minutes or longer. If someone is around them and that person does not have understanding other complications can occur.
Patients with Posttraumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) are often treated with various medications, including Trazadone. Trazadone is often great for relieving stress, reducing night sweats, and nightmares, as well as other symptoms of posttraumatic stress.
Another great solution for trauma patients is to take Natural Herbs, including Mental Alert remedies, Multiple Vitamins, especially saturated with B-Complex, and so on. Natural herbs are great, and if you are seated on a healthy diet this too is helpful to reduce posttraumatic stress symptoms. The more you take care of you, the more your symptoms will run the other way.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is nothing to play around with since the symptoms are ‘combat.’ In other words, when you endure an attack, the person often feels like they are on a battlefield and everyone around them is the enemy. The symptoms leave no room for concentration, understanding, and even affect the person’s ability to hear what is said to them.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder starts out with smaller symptoms and gradually works up to deeper symptoms if not treated. The sleepless nights alone leave the patient open for triggers. Triggers are sound, smell, voices, taste, and so forth. There are many elements in society that can trigger an episode of Posttraumatic Stress. It is also important to minimize your entertainment habits. If possible, avoid movies that will startle, fright, or trigger your symptoms.
Movies that are animated or comedies are great sources of entertainment that will spare you a posttraumatic stress attack. You want to remember that when the nervous system is affected then so is the body and mind. In other words, the more attacks you have from posttraumatic stress puts your heart and body at risk of physical illnesses.
Finally, it is important to seek help, take care of yourself, and avoid any element in society that will trigger your symptoms, including people if necessary. Isolation in one form is not as bad as suffering posttraumatic stress symptoms. Postpartum Depression is another issue many suffer; however, women are the target of this diagnose.
