According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th edition (DSM-5), to be diagnosed with PTSD, a person must have experienced or witnessed a traumatic, physically threatening event or have learned that a traumatic event happened to a close friend or family member, and display specific symptoms for at least one month. Four types of symptoms are listed in the DSM-5:
Avoiding specific locations, sights, situations, and sounds that serve as reminders of the event
Loss of interest in activities that were once considered enjoyable
Difficulty remembering details of the distressing event
Change in habits or behavior since the trauma
Trauma happens. We are physical beings on a physical planet and therefore physically vulnerable. We have bodies, minds, egos, spirits and emotions that are subject to being wounded - traumatized. But there is hope!
