Helping Yourself: How To Deal With PTSD
Shared from Google News & Weather
In an article written by Monique Polak for Montreal Gazette, she featured a psychologist specializes in treating PTSD named Monica Oala. The latter gave some warning signs for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) such as flashbacks and nightmare; disturbed sleep; mood changes; withdrawing from social setting; and self-destructive behaviour and suicidal thoughts.
Oala also gave some prevention tips on how to deal with PTSD like getting a professional help and avoid isolation. People dealing with this must express their feelings to their families or closed friends. Other tips are to go to a safe place and to feel secure; turn the negative thoughts into positive; deep breathing and exercise; and have a balanced lifestyle.
But little did we know that another best remedy for PTSD is to forgive those who have hurt us and acceptance for all the painful experiences we’ve been through? All of us undergo in a situation that beyond our control and we feel helpless and isolated. All we need to do is to love ourselves, first!
