This is a completely normal response to the trauma that you have been through. You are normal. Your brain does things to protect you while you are experiencing horrible things, those same mechanisms can make you sick. That’s what happened. It isn’t your fault and it is nothing to be ashamed of — being human is not a flaw. This response is both understandable AND NORMAL. Completely normal.
