If I knew what I know now, back years ago when things happened too me, I would have been more open to getting things that happened on operations of my chest through professional help. What I want to highlight for everyone here I guess, and those that read here, is that immediate help is required after a traumatic event, with progressive ongoing counselling, for years even, after the event, to help lessen the chances of obtaining PTSD. It is factual that PTSD often occurs from those who suffer trauma, and hide it from the world, thus making the effect much worse within themselves and developing PTSD. Don't get me wrong, even talking about it, you can still get PTSD, but the chances are less. What made me stress this point I guess, is reading a piece on employee's who are unwilling victims in shop crime. This is real stuff, real pain, real suffering, all of which can manifest into PTSD, and once you have it, you can't get rid of it I'm afraid. I hope people find this, read it, and really take notice, that if they have suffered trauma in the past, get counselling just to chat about it, and if its nothing, the counsellor will let you go with little to no more sessions. There is no time limit on the development of PTSD. It could be months after the event, years or decades.
