Ketamine & PTSD Details

Post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD, is a mental health condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. PTSD affects people from all walks of life and can occur immediately after a traumatic event, or it can occur weeks, months, or even years later.

According to the National Center for PTSD, about six percent of Americans will have PTSD at some point in their lives, and about 15 million adults suffer from the condition every year. Examples of events that can lead to Post-traumatic stress disorder include anything from natural disasters, such as earthquakes and tornadoes, to serious car accidents, combat, and acts of violence.

Intrusive Thoughts

Intrusive Thoughts

Intrusive thoughts are negative or unwanted feelings that pop into a person's head without prompting. Typically these thoughts are fear-based or inappropriate to the context. They can make a person fear for their safety - for example, convincing you you're in danger when you are not. They can also make you fear for the protection of others whenever they aren't around or recall distressing memories you would rather forget.

Avoidance

Avoidance

Avoidance is a PTSD symptom that causes a person to go out of their way to avoid people, places, or situations that remind them of their traumatic experience. These avoidance coping mechanisms can soon impact your everyday life and relationships. If you're struggling, it may be time to get treatment.

Dissociation

Dissociation

Dissociation is a coping method the brain uses to protect itself from situations it thinks may be harmful or distressing. It is a similar method to daydreaming as a way to remove yourself from a problem you cannot physically escape. More than just daydreaming, however, it is a mental process that actually disconnects you from your real thoughts, feelings, and memories.
