Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop following a traumatic event that threatens your safety or makes you feel helpless.
This often leaves the victim feeling frightened, sad, anxious, and disconnected. For many, over time the upset fades and life goes back to normal. But sometimes the trauma is so overwhelming that many cannot move on.
These people feel stuck with a constant sense of danger and painful memories that do not fade. Family members, friends or a witness who have not actually experienced the trauma but have witnessed it or have gone through the trauma with their friends or family members can all suffer with PTSD.
