Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) Awareness, Research and Resources
“Physical symptoms such as muscle tension, back problems, stomach distress, constipation, diarrhea, headaches, obesity or maybe even hypertension can be caused by suppressing your emotions. Suppressed anger may also cause you to overreact to people and situations or to act inappropriately. Unexpressed anger can cause you to become irritable, irrational, and prone to emotional outbursts and episodes of depression.” ― Beverly Engel

While it shares some similarities with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), C-PTSD is characterized by a broader range of symptoms and tends to be more chronic in nature.
