Online Trauma Therapy in Texas
Is your trauma trying to take over your life?
You worked so hard to survive the worst that life could throw at you but now it seems like the weight of your experiences will drag you down forever. You constantly look over your shoulder, expect everyone to betray you, or brace yourself for the inevitable moment when all hell breaks loose again. You might find yourself on edge when everyone else seems calm and you beat yourself up for it but you still can’t relax.
You try to keep yourself shut down so you won’t just fall apart. You blame yourself. You bounce between feeling afraid or angry or numb.
Whatever it is that you’re experiencing, you’re beginning to notice the impact of this in every facet of your life:
● You’re struggling to connect in your relationships.
● You have flashbacks or nightmares.
● Sometimes your whole body reacts like you’re in danger even though there isn’t a current threat.
● You can’t trust anyone, especially yourself.
