Am I Experiencing Psychological Trauma?
I want to ask doc. When I was a child several times I saw Kdrt at home directly, even I was also involved there (but I was not beaten / physically hurt). After remembering after that incident, I often blame myself and try to hurt myself several times, especially if you hear / there is a loud noise like people shouting / high-pitched or other sounds, I feel so excited that my heartbeat is beating fast it feels like I want to cry. When asked to discuss family, I immediately changed my mood, but I wanted to be angry, who wanted the events of that day and always avoided questions that would later discuss the past. Is that psychological trauma?
Hello Rizki, Thank you for the question.
Do these symptoms occur frequently and are difficult to control and do they interfere with your daily activities? The existence of traumatic events in the past can indeed affect the way a person thinks and acts and one's psychological condition. In some people, unpleasant events in the past can cause mental health disorders. In these conditions, the sufferer usually experiences certain symptoms that are quite frequent, difficult to control or excessive, and interfere with daily activities. If it has caused a disturbance in your daily activities then these symptoms should be addressed further because generally to overcome them further medical treatment is needed. Some of the causes of the symptoms that you are experiencing are:
