Bearable experiences become unbearable if you feel helpless and alone.
Traumatic experiences can produce feelings of anxiety, depression, despair, hopelessness, re-occurring anger, self-blame, guilt, and shame, as well as sexual dysfunction, compulsive or aggressive behaviours, sleep disorders, concentration problems, disconnection from others, loss of interest in outside activities, and psychosomatic complaints. The severity of the symptoms depends on the perceived severity of the traumatic event, your trauma history, the level of stress in your life, and the quality of support available to you from family, friends, and professionals.
