Have you suffered a recent car accident and now your life has been turned upside down? You are afraid to drive. You feel anxious, depressed, and on edge? You want to avoid the place of the accident and just a thought of the accident makes you cringe. You are bothered by certain smells and sounds that did not bother you before the accident. You used to be independent, but now you rely on others for rides. Or perhaps, you do drive, but with extreme caution and trepidation. Does this sound familiar?
If the answered is “yes,” you might be suffering from post-traumatic stress. Please, know that you are not alone and that post-traumatic stress is treatable. It is possible to significantly reduce and even completely eliminate the symptoms. Therapies such as Accelerated Resolution Therapy and EMDR Therapy can be very helpful when working through the trauma. With the help of these therapies, negative feelings, body sensations, and images can be erased and replaced with positive feelings, sensation, and images.
