Trauma is anything bad that has happened or is happening to you. It may be just one thing that happened or it may be many things over time. No one else can determine for you how serious this trauma is and how much it is affecting your life. If you are experiencing things like anxiety, despair, alternating high and low moods, hearing voices, seeing things that are not there, delusions, paranoia, phobias, nightmares, night terrors, dissociation, or low self esteem, they may be a result of trauma in your life. It might be trauma that you remember, or trauma that you don’t remember. In either case, it is hard to deal with. It disrupts your life. It keeps you from being the kind of person you want to be and doing the things you want to do. Sometimes feels like the trauma “spoils everything”. In any case, it is HARD to deal with.
