How Trauma May Damage Life Without Help
One part of learning is through sharing stories about life experiences. Working in healthcare is equivalent to reading biographies or short stories. Every day listening included individuals, young and old, sharing their joy and pain through story-telling.
A recent story included the life course up to the moment of witnessing a first body tremor. It was horrific, sad…a consistent visceral response through the end. This individual openly confessed to neglecting signs through their life that eventually led to neurological impact.
Trauma occurred but the course that was chosen was one of neglecting the healthier path. To add to the tremors were movement, visual and digestive issues.
The American Psychological Association sites trauma as an emotional response to a terrible event – an accident, rape or natural disaster.
Merriam Webster’s definition includes physical, psychic or behavioral, and emotional events. The website helpguide.org summarizes:
Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless and vulnerable in a dangerous world. Traumatic experiences often involve a threat to life or safety, but any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and alone can be traumatic, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but your subjective emotional experience of the event. The more frightened and helpless you feel, the more likely you are to be traumatized.
Everyone has experienced trauma.
Learning new experiences as a child is traumatic. A fetus may experience trauma from a mother’s stress. Puberty alone is traumatic! Gaining adult responsibility is traumatic upon failures.
Body’s may often respond adversely to neglect situations. This type of behavior response alters the health of organ functioning. Forming destructive habits splinter how the body interprets sensations. Similar to the adult experiencing the onset of tremors, neglecting adversity may eventually harm neurological functionality.
