FIGHTING PTSD - AN UPHILL BATTLE

Description

My Name is Philip Tyson and I have PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is not easy doing a video when you are in that PTSD mode but here I go. For five years, I took 150 mg of Effexor a day but I finally went cold turkey off of it because I could not handle the side effects. Going off of this medicine is one of the hardest battles anyone will go through in their life. I hope the information below also helps to inform you if you may have this or not. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can occur after you have been through a traumatic event. A traumatic event is something terrible and scary that you see, hear about, or that happens to you, like: Combat exposure Child sexual or physical abuse Terrorist attack Sexual or physical assault Serious accidents, like a car wreck Natural disasters, like a fire, tornado, hurricane, flood, or earthquake During a traumatic event, you think that your life or others' lives are in danger. You may feel afraid or feel that you have no control over what is happening around you. Most people have some stress-related reactions after a traumatic event; but, not everyone gets PTSD. If your reactions don't go away over time and they disrupt your life, you may have PTSD. Most people who go through a trauma have some symptoms at the beginning. Only some will develop PTSD over time. It isn't clear why some people develop PTSD and others don't. Whether or not you get PTSD depends on many things: How intense the trauma was or how long it lasted If you were injured or lost someone important to you How close you were to the event How strong your reaction was How much you felt in control of events How much help and support you got after the event "Getting better" means different things for different people, and not everyone who gets treatment will be "cured." Even if you continue to have symptoms, however, treatment can help you cope. Your symptoms don't have to interfere with your everyday activities, work, and relationships.
