What is PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)?
PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of PTSD usually begin early, within 3 months of the traumatic incident, but sometimes they begin years afterward. Symptoms must last more than a month and be severe enough to interfere with relationships or work to be considered PTSD. The course of the illness varies. Some people recover within 6 months, while others have symptoms that last much longer. In some people, the condition becomes chronic.
