Symptoms of PTSD
This is a list of symptoms, but it’s not a complete list as they tend to vary widely in people. Some have one or two of these and others have very few but different symptoms as the way we process stress seems to be very personal.
1. Becoming upset by things that remind you of the event.
2. Loss of caring about things and people.
5. Vivid memories.
6. Feeling like it’s happening to you again.
7. Difficulty in sleeping.
8. Angry outbursts.
9. Difficulty concentrating.
10. Not being able to work.
11. Constantly on guard or “scanning” for bad things to happen.
13. Easily startled.
14. Using alcohol or drugs to numb your personal feelings.
15. Avoiding places that remind you of the PTSD event.
16. Becoming isolated from others.
17. And/or working all the time so you don’t think of the PTSD.

Let’s Talk Children and PTSD
Let’s talk children and teens for a moment as they are also an important factor in our society. Children and teens can experience extreme reactions to trauma. Their symptoms might not be at all the same as those you see in adults. Even with very young children (less
than six years old) symptoms can include the following:
1. Wetting the bed even after learning how to use a toilet.
2. During play time they can act out scary events.
3. Unusually being very clingy with a parent.
4. Being unable to talk when they have been talking before the traumatic event.
5. Avoidance of anything new to them or a new social situation.
Older children do seem to exhibit symptoms closer to those that adults exhibit. They can experience the same “out of control” feeling or even guilt stemming from a traumatic event. To compound the problem, they don’t always have the “talking” skills to discuss the traumatic event when compared to an adult.
