Trauma has no warning. There are, however, warning signs that someone we know and love has experienced trauma we aren’t aware of.

They are in Shock: Shock is both an emotional and a physical reaction to trauma. Physical shock should be addressed immediately, responded to with a call to 911. When someone enters physical shock, it means there is an infection, a change in blood and oxygen, or that organs are shutting down. Emotional shock can be severe as well. The brain responds to trauma in the best way that it can to maintain the ability to function while attempting to comprehend what happened in the traumatic event. Shock can lead to emotional debilitation and other behavioral changes.They are in Denial: One of the seemingly easiest ways to cope with trauma is to pretend like it didn’t happen at all. Denial is sometimes voluntary and sometimes unconscious. Acknowledging and admitting a traumatic event makes the event real and valid. Denial serves a purpose for a period of time, allowing us to gather the strength we need to face the reality of our lives head on.They are Aggressively Angry: Most people will experience trauma within their lifetime. How each person who experiences trauma reacts to trauma will differ greatly. A minority of people will fully develop PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder. Coping with trauma often includes moving through the many cycles of grief, which includes anger. Trauma is shocking, surprising, and typically not positive. We don’t feel we are supposed to endure trauma and that when we do have to endure trauma we have been fed some kind of bad deal. Anger is a normal reaction to trauma, even to the point of aggression. Attempting to cope with trauma can be frustrating. If your loved one is displaying a sudden demeanor of aggression or anger, it is possible they have had to endure some trauma and are struggling to make sense of it.They cannot Sleep: Sleep disturbances of different kinds are common when it comes to trauma. Insomnia, nightmares, night terrors, or a deep fear of falling asleep happens frequently due to the flashbacks and hallucinations trauma can cause. Though sleep is a critical part of recovering from trauma because exhaustion can lead to a more frazzled mental state, it is often one of the hardest things to do after trauma.
