The PTSD or the post-traumatic stress disorder is easy to explain - this is a disorder that follows a traumatic incident. For example, a child is sexually abused by someone close in her or his family, but is unable to stop it or tell it to anyone. PTSD sufferers may feel like they can never return to their normal self because of an inability to move past the distressing incident that triggered the trauma. It is always advisable to consult cptsd a doctor and start treatment as early as you can. When this person grows up into an adult, he or she would have panic attacks every time he or she would be reminded of that incident.
