Is Crying When Remembering A Traumatic Event A Symptom Of PTSD?
Hello, Doctor … I am Nisa, I am 22 years old. So about 2 years ago I experienced a family problem that was quite traumatizing. since that incident I always feel angry and emotion that exploded and almost hysterical every time I intersect with the house people who fought with me first, but when I was alone and accidentally remember the events of 2 years ago that I unconsciously cry by myself. at first I ignored because I thought I was still hurt by the incident and I considered it normal, but lately after 2 years and I tried to forget it, the traumatic memory kept appearing and I always cry afterwards even when I’m on the move or even in the crowd though . and my relationship with home people is getting worse and worse because I cannot interact calmly and continue to communicate while angry. roughly the thing I’m experiencing is ptsd disorder isn’t it? is it classified as normal or already severe? considering that almost 2 years, I like this, but it keeps getting better
