When a traumatic event occurs, it can leave scars physically but also mentally. Certain types of accidents can result in the diagnosis of a personality disorder. When diagnosed with such a disorder, the individual faces an emotional condition that will be difficult to deal with. Take, for example, a brain injury. When an individual is involved in a car accident and faces a traumatic brain injury, the result can change the personality as well as behavioral problems. The individual may face several issues such as becoming unstable emotionally, feeling depressed, or be diagnosed with issues such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder or another anxiety disorder.
Personality disorders can stem from a number of traumatic events, including car accidents, incidents of crime, even childbirth. It has been proven that a traumatic childbirth can leave the individual traumatized and affect the person for the rest of their life.
Identifying Personality Disorders
If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident, have changes in their personality been seen? Did you notice the individual is not acting like themselves and they seem to be off-kilter? It can take some time to diagnose a personality disorder and if the individual does not seek mental treatment along with physical medical assistance, they may not fully understand how they were affected by the incident.
It is important to recognize changes in behavior and make the appropriate appointments to be evaluated. Once diagnosed with a personality disorder, treatment can be provided to help the patient deal with the traumatic event and refocus their mentality to get back on track. The individual needs to learn how to deal with the emotional trauma of the accident to begin to heal the mind correctly.
Traumatic accident victims need to understand that they can be affected mentally. Most people do not even consider how they are affected mentally and focus more on the physical injury, especially when injured in a severe matter. However, the mental anguish that one can face can be equally traumatic and affect the individual long after physical injuries heal.
