Side Effects From The War: PTSD
By | December 3, 2018
What is PTSD? PTSD stands for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder which is a serious condition that develops after a person has experienced something very traumatic in their life, in this case, war.
In most cases, under normal conditions, a person can overcome feelings of anger, shock, fear, nervousness, and guilt after a tragic event in their life, but for those who suffer from PTSD, it’s not so easy. For them, the condition only worsens. Symptoms include: reliving the event or events through flashbacks, nightmares, and hallucinations; avoiding places or people that remind them of the trauma; increased emotional changes such as outbursts of anger, inability to feel or show emotion, trouble falling or staying asleep, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and other negative emotions.
