Coping With Stress

How Can You Cope With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Coping With Stress - Divine Mind InstitutePost Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a very real condition, one that is difficult to understand unless you have experienced it yourself or have observed it in someone close to you.

It’s hard to believe that someone with PTSD is in such emotional pain and anxiety, feels so totally alone, and feels that no one cares or understands.

Once called Battle Fatigue or Shell Shock, PTSD can have serious and lasting consequences if not dealt with. The symptoms can change a person’s quality of life.

Oftentimes adding to their stress, PTSD victims wonder why they aren’t coping better, which leads them to try to hide their sorrow, depression or stress.

In a desperate attempt to find relief from their symptoms, the sufferer may resort to such extreme activities as acting out violently, consuming too much alcohol, drug abuse or gambling.
