S.O.S. signals

Psychological, physiological, emotional and spiritual meltdowns are all natural reactions to a traumatic event.

How long has this been going on?

While some trauma survivors recover without any professional help, others experience feelings so intense and prolonged, they wonder if they’ll ever feel normal again. If you’ve been feeling really miserable for a month or longer, it may be time to consider professional treatment.

The good news is that there are many ways to speed trauma recovery—and all of them get good results.

Surviving a traumatic event can wreak havoc on your body. Talk to your doctor about medication if you are experiencing severe or prolonged depression, anxiety, mood swings, heart palpitations, sleeplessness or any other disturbing symptoms that make it difficult for you to function.

Above all, give yourself time to heal. With proper care and support, you will feel better and life will be normal again.
