Apnea is a term for suspension of external breathing. During apnea, there is no movement of the muscles of inhalation and the volume of the lungs initially remains unchanged.
Depending on how blocked the airways are, there may or may not be a flow of gas between the lungs and the environment. Gas exchange within the lungs and cellular respiration is not affected.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects thousands of people every year.

Psychological addiction happens when the user becomes emotionally attached to a drug. When they are left without it, they will experience strong cravings, which can’t assuage any pains or provide physical pleasure.

When the drug isn’t used, the person has no way to deal with the feelings that rise up inside. Of course, the drug isn’t a real solution to these issues, but only is a temporary way to mask pain.

Our experiences, actions, and the choices we make follow us through life.
Few people live their entire life without experiencing and feeling the emotions of sadness, trauma, doubt, aggression, shame, and hopelessness.
Yet, some people experience these feelings more regularly or they are more sensitive due to severe traumatic experiences. In these cases, they may suffer from “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.”
Victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder otherwise known as PTSD will typically feel isolated, uneasy, and sometimes aggressive toward themselves and others for no apparent reason.
Understanding PTSD and incorporating psychotherapeutic PTSD treatment is the first step to a full recovery and achieving wholeness again.
