Were You At The Boston Marathon When the Bombs Went Off? Learn the Symptoms of PTSD and What to do About Them

Vol. 198, April 27, 2013

For many it felt like a war zone with the blast occurring at the finish line. People hustled to take care of the injured as best they could after this horrific event. We know that those who are involved in life threatening events beyond anyone’s control might suffer post traumatic stress disorder as a result. From the hypnotic point of view, being in a highly emotional situation such is the case during events like this, the mind is open to the suggestions of fear, anxiety and hate one may be hearing around them. This would be in addition to any personal trauma experienced by the individual. For some who survived there may also be a feeling of survivor’s guilt, a wondering as to why they survived while others died. Of course if you lost anyone you knew, grieving the loss would be necessary.

Even with the training that the military personnel have, we hear of the many thousands who come home unable to live with these conditions of post traumatic stress and survivors guilt. Mental health professionals believe that civilians will be more susceptible to PTSD than military personnel in a war zone. This is because the civilians would never believe that bombs being exploded at such a beloved event as the Boston Marathon could ever happen. Mental health professionals also have found that man created events are more traumatic than those of natural disasters to those who suffer them. An act of terrorism such as this, leaves people feeling a lack of safety and security leading to feelings of distress not knowing if another attack will occur causing harm to self or community.

Please note: repeatedly going over the events with another will create more problems in the long run, so it is best to stop from doing so. However, getting a better understanding of what happened can help and ought to be done.

If these symptoms remain for over a month after the event you may be experiencing a PTSD response to the tragedy:

1) One can either have no recollection of the event OR they may have recurrent memoriess of the event.

2) Easily startled.

3)  More agitated than usual

4)  Inability to sleep

5)  Nightmares

6)  Desire to be isolated from others

7)   Desire for revenge

If you were a person who was close to the explosion, helping traumatized victims or traumatized yourself, you are going to have a much larger chance of developing PTSD. If this is so, do yourself a favor and get the help that you need.

Again, as a hypnotist, I want you to know that you can most likely be healed of these symptoms with some basic neuro-linguistic trauma removal techniques in a very short period. There is no viable reason to be in therapy for a long time and even less of a reason to be popping anti-anxiety medication. Just make sure that the hypnotist has a successful track record working with people who have dealt with post traumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorders. This is something you should readily be able to figure out by looking at the testimonials on the hypnotist’s website. I wish you the best going forward.
