What to expect from a Traumatic Event

Trauma effects people in many different ways. Trauma can effect people Physically, Cognitively, Emotionally, Behaviorally and Spiritually. Physical symptoms can include shock, no appetite, lightheadedness, Nausea, Stomach cramps, weakness and feeling faint. Cognitive or Thinking symptoms can include inability to concentrate, forgetfulness, not knowing what to say, Emotional reactions can include disbelief, loss of emotional  control, crying spells, depression and anger, Physical symptoms may include loss of control, avoidance, inappropriate acting out, and drug use.

All of the above are normal reactions to trauma. The earlier one gets help the better outcome one will have. Without therapy traumatic experiences can trn into PTSD.

Things to do. Exercize, drink plenty of water, eat balanced meals and reach out to friends. Allow yourself to grief and give your self permission to feel bad for a couple of days.
