Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

(PTSD) may develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, warfare, serious injury, or threats of imminent death. When a person is experiencing a group of symptoms, such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyperarousal, continue for more than a month after the occurrence of a traumatic event he or she should seek help. Confronting your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively solving the problem.
