Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a psychological condition that is caused by a sudden, severe, and/or traumatic event. Veterans who have been to war, individuals who suffer abuse and violence, victims of crime, and losing a loved one are all examples of people who may suffer from PTSD. Post-traumatic stress disorder typically causes nightmares, social anxiety, isolation, as well as extreme physical and emotional reactions to triggers. Untreated PTSD can lead to unhealthy thoughts, negative emotions, and harmful behaviors of addiction and eating issues. Managing your thoughts, controlling your emotions, and learning how to effectively deal with past trauma is key to defeating post-traumatic stress disorder.
