Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a complex emotional illness that can drastically affect one’s life. It is an anxiety disorder that can occur as the result of having seen or been a party to a traumatic event.

Some common causes of PTSD can include traumatic events such as:
  • Witnessing or being a victim of a violent crime such as assault, robbery, rape or murder
  • Enduring physical, sexual, emotional, or other forms of abuse
  • Receiving a life-threatening medical diagnosis
  • Exposure to a terrifying situation such as a plane crash, natural disaster, war or terrorist attack

Not everyone who experiences these kinds of events will suffer from PTSD. However, for those who do, the effects on their lives are debilitating.

Symptoms of PTSD include:
  • Introversion, social disassociation, and loss of interest in things which were once enjoyed
  • Nightmares
  • Hyperarousal including jumpiness, insomnia, irritability and a constant sense that danger is lurking
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Reliving the trigger event

For many, this illness not only impacts their personal life, but takes a toll on their professional life as well. It can make maintaining employment virtually impossible. For many, filing for disability is their only hope for survival.
