You may have posttraumatic stress
disorder (PTSD) if you’ve been through a traumatic event and are having trouble dealing
with it. Such events may include a car crash, rape, domestic violence, military combat,
or violent crime. While it is normal to have some anxiety after such an event, it
goes away in time. But with PTSD, the anxiety is more intense and keeps coming back.
the trauma is relived through nightmares, intrusive memories, and flashbacks. These
be vivid memories that seem real. The symptoms of PTSD can cause problems with
relationships and make it hard to cope with daily life. But it can be treated. With
help, you can feel better.
