Complex trauma can be tricky for a person to deal with. Rather than one single event or series of events, this form of trauma can involve different events from completely different situations that relate under a single underlying emotional response. For example a person may deal with sexual abuse early on in life and then result to drug addiction to cope, further elaborating on the trauma by dealing with the clutches of drug addiction and the horror it entails.
Dealing with complex trauma can have a great disturbance on the brain and central nervous system. It can distort the person’s sense of self and even lead to personality disorders such as narcissism, codependency, and borderline personality disorder. Along with this are neurological problems such as anxiety and depression. The person may have trouble sleeping at night and experience flashbacks during the day. Many times people deal with these symptoms in unhealthy manners such as substance abuse, unhealthy relationships, eating disorders, and other unhealthy behaviors.
It is essential that a person recall events in the past, leading to unwanted feelings of emotional turmoil that is affecting their daily lives. In order to do so a person must be unafraid to look at their past and recall anything that can be affecting their current mental health. In doing so the person can undergo a healing process and properly grieve for tragedies they could not grieve when they had occurred.
