Hands clammy, heart pumping, Susan froze; the familiar nausea and bile rose in her throat as the blond man’s blue eyes stared at her. She slapped at a hand that had touched her arm. “Susan, are you OK?” The hand stayed – it felt different, comforting, rather than moving to restrain her or cover her mouth. “It’s OK Susan, you’re here with me,” said the voice of her dear friend Ira, bringing her back to standing in a line of people at the newsagent, being served by a blond man. Susan took a deep breath, held Ira’s hand, and said to herself, “This is not my father. I am safe”.
Susan’s experience is a typical example of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Aged 45, she had endured nine years of sexual abuse between the ages of four and 13. For years, she didn’t remember it, and then – as occurs with many PTSD survivors – an event later on in life triggered similar feelings to the original trauma; in Susan’s case, her pelvis was broken in a car accident, and the feelings of powerlessness caused the memories to re-emerge, along with panic attacks. Other traumas that can result in PTSD include natural disasters, accidents and war; many survivors endure symptoms for years. It’s essential to get the right help, with a clinical psychologist with specific training and experience to go through these steps to healing.
