Do past traumas trigger you? Are you suffering with a chronic disease (e.g., pain, fibromyalgia, diabetes, obesity)? And are any of these health issues making you feel chronically stressed and/or depressed? Do you think you have ADHD because you can’t focus and feel so overwhelmed? If so, therapy can help. When trauma occurs, our minds often create a defense like avoidance to protect us from danger. While avoiding trauma is adaptive at first, over time, suppressing our emotions leads to our bodies rebelling which manifests as physical illnesses such as migraines, panic attacks, obesity, diabetes, etc.
