Here is a way to explain to people what a traumatic event is and why you were changed by it.
They will understand it because every person on the planet experienced it. They just never think about it this way.
Every part of you was involved in the event that created the shock. Every part of your has shock absorbers already built in. Your system may have been overloaded and you may need help. But...every other time in your life, you adapted to what happened with help, including the one that everyone understands.
Also know that you can overcome it as a survivor with help. #BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from #PTSD
