Trauma and Anxiety
Like physical pain, which alerts us to take care of an infection, illness or wound, fear is a gift. Fear warns us of danger and spurs us to protect ourselves.
However, when fear turns into continual anxiety (despite the threat being over) , or when anxiety 
appears without any reason, the joy of living vanishes. Disturbances in every day functioning, concentration, memory, sleep, emotions and social behavior may appear.
Many life situations – illness, loss and grief, economic pressures, problems in our relationships with the people we care about most, continuous stress, etc. – can lead to anxieties.
Why continue to suffer when research-based therapies are available? You can learn more about one of them, EMDR (a therapy that helps your brain reprocess trauma and alleviate trauma permanently), here.
Contrary to the widespread belief that only “huge” events like terror  attacks or sexual abuse are traumatic, even supposedly “minor” events like a deep insult from a loved one, or sudden loss of bladder control, can be traumatic.
