Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious condition describing the emotional responses to a traumatic event in a person’s life.
When someone is involved or knows someone involved in a traumatic event, such as a car crash, assault or near death experience, it is very natural for that person to have emotional reactions such as anxiety and distress. This emotional reaction is expected to last for less than a month. If feelings last for longer than a month and increase in severity, it might be that the person is suffering with PTSD.
PTSD can be difficult to understand – often symptoms can continue months or years after the event and it might be hard for others to understand. The sufferer may feel a pressure to ‘get over it’ or ‘stop dwelling on the past’, but the truth is PTSD is the bodies way of dealing with the trauma it has experienced.
