When do I have a trauma disorder?

If the processing of events is no longer possible, but certain symptoms set in, professional treatment is necessary. I would like to say that accepting help from outside is not a disgrace.

Such symptoms may include, but are not limited to:

  • Flashbacks (re-experience of the traumatic situation and helplessness),
  • Insomnia
  • Depressions
  • strong feeling of self-hatred and self-rejection,
  • self-injurious behaviour (also unintentionally referred to as an “accident”),
  • outbursts of anger over insecurities,
  • narcissism or complementary narcissism,
  • obedience, docility,
  • physical “freezing” in case of threat,
  • Absences and mind drifts for minutes to hours,
  • unbalanced proximity-distance ratio,
  • Permanent stress,
  • strong feelings of hatred projected onto others,
  • procrastination of tasks,
  • poor productivity,
  • sudden but persistent lack of success,
  • Dejection
  • lack of drive,
  • gratuitous feelings of shame and guilt,
  • Drug addiction
  • Alcohol abuse
  • loss of libido,
  • compulsive tidying up and cleaning
