PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. The event could be combat, a surgery, an accident, rape, domestic violence, living in a violent neighborhood, hurricane, fire, flood—anything traumatic.
An estimated 8% of Americans –
that's 24.4 million people!
It is natural to feel afraid during and after a traumatic situation. Fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to help defend against danger or to avoid it. This “fight-or-flight” response is a typical reaction meant to protect a person from harm. Most people recover from initial symptoms naturally.
Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they are not in danger. This can often adversely affect themselves, their family and/or their work.
PTSD symptoms include:
- Re-living the traumatic experience (flashbacks)
- Excessive emotions – jumpy, irritable, difficulty sleeping, anger outbursts, unhealthy habits
- Avoidance of anything or anyone that reminds you of the traumatic event
- Negative beliefs and feelings. Guilt and shame
