When a person experiences trauma or a stressful life situation, it’s normal to feel more nervous, anxious, or overexcited than usual.

Anxiety and fear are very typical symptoms of stress and trauma. Suddenly, the world doesn’t feel the same as it did before the event, but can feel dangerous and confusing. It can be hard to trust other people or feel like it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen.

Good treatment and support is available for stress and trauma symptoms.
