  • Post-traumatic stress disorder affects millions of American men and women. People who served in the military are not the only ones who develop PTSD although this is commonly assumed. Anyone who experienced a traumatic, shocking and dangerous event in their lives can develop this disorder. Treatments for PTSD include various types of therapies and medications. Wearing a PTSD medical ID bracelet is recommended if you have PTSD and you’re taking medication so that in case of an emergency, the EMT can be made aware of your condition and administer the right kind of treatment or help.

    PTSD is known as an invisible illness because of the fact that a person does not show any physical disability. Thus, there are those who doubt that a person who claims to have this disorder are being truthful and might even accuse them of trying to get preferential treatment. When the symptoms of PTSD kicks in, such as anxiety, fear or sudden bursts of anger, the people around might not know how to react or could interpret this the wrong way. Having a PTSD Medical ID bracelet on can easily identify an individual as suffering from a medical condition and can greatly save them especially at times when they are not able to advocate for themselves.

    Coping with a disability like PTSD can be difficult not only for the individual who develops it but also for their family and friends. Fortunately, there are now good treatment options for PTSD. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the type of counseling the VA is pushing for PTSD due to its effectiveness. There are two forms of CBT: Cognitive Processing Therapy which helps the patient change his or her view about the trauma and Prolonged Exposure which helps the patient face his or her fears associated to the experienced traumatic events. There are also medications available that are effective. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like sertraline, citalopram and paroxetine, are antidepressants that help the patient feel less worried and depressed. People with depression tend to have very low serotonin which is the chemical that regulates mood. Low level of serotonin is known to promote anxiety and depression. SSRIs raise the level of this chemical in the brain, thus improving mood. If taking SSRI medications, it is important to always have a medical ID for PTSD that also indicates this.

    Aside from therapy and medication, support from family and friends can also greatly help the individual cope with PTSD. Do not shy away from discussing your condition with your trusted loved ones. Let them know what might trigger your symptoms. Doing exercises regularly can reduce stress and help you become more focused. Actively identify and seek out people, places or situations that bring comfort to you. Your symptoms will improve slowly but surely.
