These include military personnel, police, paramedics, people involved in armed robberies, rape victims, other abuse victims and many more. Most people will let go of their traumatic experiences with no need for further help. However for some people the experience can last for years if not their entire lives, which is why post traumatic stress disorder can have such a debilitating effect on people.

Where does PTSD come from?

Post traumatic stress disorder was first examined during the First World War when soldiers developed shell shock due to the awful events and conditions they encountered. PTSD was only officially recognized as a mental health condition in 1980 and included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Here is a link to Wikipedia and to the NHS with further information about PTSD and its affects.

The reality is that millions of people suffer from PTSD and their lives are negatively affected by it. The fact is that some people who experience a traumatic event will develop PTSD while others won’t. It is as if they simply “shake off the event.”
