Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome You may feel depressed and have no idea what you can do about it. You can try medications for depression, but if your problem is bigger than just depression, you may have to have more help than that. There are times when something happens to us in life that we have a hard time dealing with and in turn, our brains react in a different manner than usual. You think of post traumatic stress syndrome as something that someone returning from war may have, but anyone can witness or go through something that will leave them with this diagnosis. Post traumatic stress syndrome can happen when you have been through or witnessed something that you are not use to seeing and that had a huge negative turnout. This could be when you are in a car accident, witness someone being mugged or even killed, or if you have suffered at the hands of someone you love in a profound way. We are built to deal with certain amounts of emotional stress, but some things are simply too much for us to process. When that happens, we end up with post traumatic stress syndrome. This often comes with depression as well, but not always. You do not have to be an adult to have post traumatic stress syndrome. This is something that happens to kids and if they are not helped, they can carry this with them throughout life. They may not know any better and they think the way they are feeling is the same way that everyone else feels. Only when they get help do they realize that they have been under the effects of something that made them view the world in a way that others would never think. These are children who have been abused, witnessed abuse, or suffered from the lost of parents at a young age. If you are diagnosed with post traumatic stress syndrome, see someone else to continue care. You want to see someone to talk to as there are certain methods they can use to make your mind work in a new way so that your brain is not always on 'alert' and you stop seeing everything in a negative light no matter what it might be. You can also take mood stabilizers for a short period of time while going through therapy to help lessen the stress you are going through and to help your brain understand that it does not have to afraid of everything, even though that is the way it is wired thanks to post traumatic stress disorder. Do not take this type of diagnosis lightly. For one, your life will greatly improve if you get the problem resolved, and for two, you are at risk for deep depression and suicide if you continue as you are. If you feel as if you do not care and see no point in turning things around, you are already in the danger zone. Let someone know how you feel, even if in that moment you do not think that they care, so that they can then find someone to help you. You do not have to live with post traumatic stress syndrome and you can be happy again. You will feel like a new person once you have gone through therapy and see the world in the right way again.
