"Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an emotional illness that develops as a result of a frightening, life-threatening, or highly unsafe experience.
PTSD sufferers re-experience the traumatic event in some way, tend to avoid places, people, or other things that remind them of the event (avoidance), and are exquisitely sensitive to normal life experiences (hyperarousal)."
If you are experiencing a confusing range of symptoms, or if you are not recovering as your health care practitioners expect, you may be suffering from PTSD.
You will need support and guidance if you are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder.
