Reaction to stress

People can react to stressful situations in different ways. If you have experienced some kind of trauma, it is quite normal that you react differently than before. You might have become more impatient or you feel sad. Perhaps, you are very shocked by what happened. It all depends on how you felt about before the event, but also on the reaction of people in your surroundings.
