An Understanding of the Trauma Caused by Accidents
Accidents, whether they be vehicle accidents, occurrences at the place of employment, or any other form of traumatic event, have the potential to leave behind permanent emotional scars. An accident can have a substantial impact on a person’s mental health in addition to the physical injuries it produces. Long after the event itself has passed, one may continue to experience feelings of fear, worry, and even guilt. These feelings, if they are not dealt with, might cause long-term psychological suffering if they are ignored.
‘Accident trauma’ is distress experienced by someone recovering from an accident. While trauma can be physical, it is often emotional and psychological and the psychological effects of changing health can be devastating. Accident trauma is not just about what happened during the events which occurred, it can also refer to how you are left feeling afterwards.
When we go through traumatic experiences, our anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed might grow, which can lead to emotional dysregulation. When we are emotionally aroused, our “fight or flight” mechanism is activated, which causes us to experience feelings of panic and terror as a result of the activation of our sympathetic nervous system. When we are overcome by this mechanism, we often become paralyzed by it, dissociating from it, closing down, and feeling as though there is no hope. If we don’t deal with our traumatic experiences, they can distort our fundamental selves and render us incapable of functioning normally. It’s possible that we could experience a wide range of feelings, some of which are depicted in the following diagram:
