Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is often associated with members of the armed forces who experience combat, but the condition isn’t exclusive to them. It can affect anyone following a traumatic event.
Examples of events that can lead to PTSD include:
PTSD can also develop as a result of ongoing trauma like child or spousal abuse.
Post-traumatic stress disorder causes symptoms that can be categorized as intrusive memories, negative changes in thinking and mood, avoidance, and changes in physical and emotional reactions. Not everyone experiences PTSD the same way.
Symptoms of PTSD can change over time but could include:
People with PTSD sometimes experience survivor’s guilt; they obsess over why they survived a traumatic event while others didn’t.
