PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Some people develop post-traumatic stress disorder after experiencing or seeing a traumatic event that may have endangered their life or that of another person. Sometimes the event is not necessarily dangerous, but the person experiences it as such. Whether or not the person can develop it depends on psychological, social, and biological factors.
The main symptoms of PTSD and that each person experiences in their own way are: re-experiencing symptoms, avoidance symptoms (persistent avoidance of external or internal stimuli associated with the traumatic event such as objects, situations, memories, distressing feelings, people, places, conversations …), symptoms of hypervigilance and reactivity (persistent physiological hyperactivation), cognitive symptoms (recurring, intrusive memories and dreams, flashbacks in which the person feels that the traumatic event is reliving) and of mood (anxiety, irritability, anxiety).
