Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

When you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), dealing with the past can be hard. Whether you've suddenly lost a loved one or experienced a near death experience, getting over these traumatic events is easier said than done. But talking with the psychologist from Mary Ann Barr Phd, Inc. can help you get better and avoid keeping your feelings bottled up.

First and foremost it is vital that PTSD sufferers understand that it is natural to feel afraid during and after a traumatic situation. Fear triggers a “fight-or-flight” response which has been ingrained in us since the beginning of time to help defend against danger. The human body's natural reaction, which triggers many split second changes in an instant, is meant to protect a person from this danger. Although most people recover from initial symptoms naturally, not everyone does. If you're one of those people who just can't seem to get over a issue which causes you stress, anxiety, and maybe even frightens you even when there's no danger in sight, you may have PTSD.

Although medications have been shown to be effective, PTSD therapy alone can help you with your road to recovery. Don't suffer from PTSD any longer and please contact Mary Ann Barr Phd, Inc. in Mill Valley, CA today.
