What is PTSD

PTSD

  • PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault.


It's normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after a traumatic event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about.


If it's been longer than a few months and you're still having symptoms, you may have PTSD. For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later on, or they may come and go over time.


4 Types of Symptoms of PTSD

  • Reliving the Event 
  • Avoiding Situations That Reminding You of The Event
  • Negative Changes in Beliefs And Feelings
  • Always on Alert of Danger


There are several subsets of these indicators including nightmares, anxiety, stress, and several more.  Many people suffer from PTSD and might not understand it.  While others may be able to identify PTSD and seek different types of treatment.  Forge of Honor does not offer professional counseling but we do offer another alternative for someone to cope with the condition.
