You are asking yourself do I have PTSD.
Post Traumatic Stress is the result of you being in or having witnessed a traumatic event! These events activate the flight/fight/freeze instinct which stores the whole event in your mind, which can be triggered by similar events/sights/sounds. The result is you having ‘flashbacks’ pictures of the event flooding through you with all the negative emotions you experienced at the time flooding through you, time and again. Unfortunately using the existing therapies PTSD can affect you for the rest of your life (until now)! We do not wish to trigger you with listing all the different events which can cause PTSD.
You came here to know “Do I have PTSD”?
To measure if you have PTSD we use The Posttraumatic Checklist (Weathers et al, 1993**). To get a full picture where you are today we also included the test for depression, anxiety, and stress.(DASS 21 Psychology Department, UNSW)
