Introduction

A. PTSD – Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Most people who experience a traumatic event will have reactions that may include shock, anger, nervousness, fear, and even guilt. These reactions are common, and for most people, they go away over time. For a person with PTSD, however, these feelings continue and even increase, becoming so strong that they keep the person from living a normal life. People with PTSD have symptoms for longer than one month and cannot function as well as before the event occurred.
B. PTSD is a result of something happening to you but you must understand that in order to get healing, you must get back what you have lost.
