When you are weighed down and tied to your struggles it can be hard to see and be real with the people around us.

As a person experiencing struggles with PTSD you may be experiencing:

  • intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended.

  • You may relive the event through flashbacks or nightmares; they may feel sadness, fear, or anger; and they may feel detached or estranged from other people.

  • You may avoid situations or people that remind them of the traumatic event, and they may have strong negative reactions to something as ordinary as a loud noise or an accidental touch.

PTSD also manifests with physical effects from trauma.

  • · Experiencing angry outbursts

  • · Trouble sleeping, eating, or concentrating

  • · Feeling jumpy and on edge

  • ·Becoming easily startled

  • · Apathy towards events that used to interest you

  • ·Negative thoughts and feelings (about yourself, other people, or the world)

  • ·Loss of memory about the traumatic event, and what surrounded it

  • ·Guilt or blame

Some of us think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go…

Helping to Serve those who Serve others

For professionals in a helping career, it is often easier for us to give help than ask for help. These types of careers can lead us to feel a passion tax, burnout, compassion fatigue, and even PTSD symptoms. While we enter these fields for many reasons but I believe you are working in the service industry because you care to make a change in the world for the better. When someone is experiencing symptoms of burnout, and compassion fatigue. The impact and effectiveness of the change are limited when you are just trying to make it through your day.
