Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD for short) is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by a traumatic event that the sufferer has experienced- whether that be a traumatic incident, an accident, a violent assault, war, or a host of other experiences. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is typically attributed to war veterans; however, many other people currently suffer or have suffered from the disorder. Symptoms of PTSD include avoiding any reminders of the event, intrusive thoughts that bring you back to the event, and overarching negative thoughts and feelings. It is considered normal to have these types of symptoms immediately following an event, however PTSD is characterized by these symptoms lasting a month or longer. These symptoms can take over someone’s life and make it difficult to carry on in society, which is why treatment and recovery should be taken seriously.
