Trauma Symptoms as an Adult
Symptoms of your childhood trauma spill out when you’re stressed. Or when something in your life serves as a subtle reminder of what happened to you as a kid.
Your childhood trauma lives in your symptoms, such as panic attacks, catastrophic anxieties, relationship fears, obsessions or eating disorders. Your childhood trauma might ruin your happiness, relationships, or even your career.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) based in Altanta, Georgia, adults who experienced or witnessed traumatic events as a child are at higher risk of dying from at least five of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States, such as heart disease. Those individuals also are at a higher risk of developing conditions such as asthma, cancer, clinical depression, and diabetes, according to the report. The risk of developing such health risks was greater when people experienced multiple traumatic experiences or experienced traumatic experiences over prolonged periods of time. Eliminating childhood trauma could prevent almost 2 million cases of coronary heart disease, 2.5 million cases of obesity, and more than 20 million cases of depression. Preventing trauma also could keep up to 1.5 million students from dropping out of school in The United States.
