Nearly 8 million Americans suffer from trauma. It can happen to anyone at any age. It may happen immediately following a traumatic event or it may not happen until years later.
When you go through a traumatic experience, it’s normal to feel fear, helplessness, anger, guilt, and even shame. Normally these feelings taper off after several weeks to a month. Sometimes, however, these troubling emotions don’t subside at all or occur unexpectedly at a later time. They can leave you struggling with frightening memories and a sense of constant danger.
There is help. You can fully recover from traumatic experiences. An experienced therapist can guide you through proven techniques that can relieve your symptoms so that you can return to a normal life.
