It feels distressing, intolerable, and if left untreated, trauma can sustain negative lifestyle attachments and poor coping skills. A traumatic episode can take a tremendous amount of energy to pay attention to by your conscious-mind, leaving you feeling tired or drained. This could be the reason why a lot of trauma victims gluttonize in alcohol, food, sex, drugs, and all forms of subjective pain because trauma complicates the brain area that communicates the physical embodiment of being alive.
Being traumatized means to perpetually organize your life as if it were still going on unchanged today. Every new encounter is challenged from the past based on adverse experiences. It could be with a new relationship or new goal that will be measured by earlier and unforeseen traumatic circumstances. Unrecognized and displaced stress can internalize, harming your body's systems.
Suppressing trauma does not stop stress hormones from exhausting the body. Inhibiting emotions can delay physical senses, increasing your stress hormones and experiencing the traumatic event over again biologically.
