Does this sound like you?

Those with PTSD may experience some of the following symptoms:

A lack of control. Your body, your emotions, your reactions, are all on autopilot and overridden by the emotional (and not logical) part of your brain (adrenal hyperarousal).


You find yourself in survival instinct all the time (situational awareness).


Insomnia and nightmares. You re-live the trauma in your dreams to the point of trying to self-medicate to sleep or insomnia, creating a state of constant exhaustion.


Emotional ups and downs. You find yourself alternating between angry and numb.

You are not alone and there are solutions

It is extremely frustrating for those who return home with PTSD.  When you were deployed, you felt like a confident, capable and clear-headed individual.  Now you beat yourself up over an inability to “just move on.”

If you are frustrated with the VA, know you have options.

You and your family crave the normalcy of how things used to be, but everything has changed.   The emotional state of your brain has taken over the logical part of your brain, causing you to switch from terror and rage to numbness and emotional exhaustion in a nanosecond.
