Trauma can be a single event or a series of traumatic events that are repeated over time causing an individual to become overwhelmed with painful, frightening or loathing emotions.
When a person is unable to deal with traumatic events, he or she will often feel alone and struggle with recurring feelings of worry, fear, and worthlessness. Trauma sufferers often have difficulty in relationships and in dealing with emotional challenges, as well as low self-esteem due to the traumatic experience and feelings associated with the trauma. Psychological trauma may set in after a distressing or life-threatening event and sufferers may develop extreme anxiety or PTSD.
If you’ve experienced an extremely stressful or disturbing event that’s left you feeling helpless and emotionally out of control, you may have been traumatized.
