Difficulty Sleeping

In the period following the crime or traumatic event, many victims have trouble falling asleep, lying in bed, thinking about what happened, and even after falling asleep, it’s common to have nightmares about the incident. It’s also common to wake up several times during the night. These sleep disturbances can also lead to increased irritability.
