Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a condition that can develop after a traumatic life event causes a person to feel helpless, unsafe, and threatened. Post-traumatic stress disorder is commonly associated with soldiers who return from the military, but it can also occur to anyone who experiences a catastrophic accident.

After a traumatic event, it is normal to feel overwhelmed and frightened. If, however, these feelings do not fade, you may be experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. With this disorder, stress and fear-related dreams and anxieties remain and do not decrease over time but instead are ongoing or recurring. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder can gradually or suddenly arise depending on the individual.
Three main symptoms exist for this disorder:
- Re-experiencing the traumatic event
- Avoidance of reminders of the event
- Increase of anxiety and emotional excitement
For people who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, help can be found through various resources. Doctors advise victims of this disorder to obtain guidance from a therapist or physician. Workers' compensation is a method of insurance to help with the financial aspects of obtaining treatment.
