Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric condition that affects people who’ve witnessed or directly experienced a traumatic event. Known as shell shock during the first World War, and from the second World War onwards, combat fatigue, PTSD isn’t a problem that only affects people who’ve been in a war zone. Other traumatic events that can cause PTSD include:

  • Natural disasters 

  • Road accident

  • Terrorist acts

  • Torture

  • Rape

  • Violent personal assaults


Any event that you, as an individual, find traumatic can lead to PTSD. It can also develop after prolonged exposure to abuse, or as a result of hearing bad news or seeing traumatic images.

Here are the four categories of PTSD symptoms:

  • Intrusive thoughts: These are unwanted thoughts, memories, or images of the traumatic event. They can be very vivid and upsetting, and they can cause a lot of distress.

  • Avoidance: People with PTSD often try to avoid anything that reminds them of the traumatic event. This can include people, places, activities, or objects.

  • Negative thoughts and feelings: People with PTSD often have negative thoughts and feelings about themselves, the world, and the future. They may feel guilty, ashamed, or angry. They may also have trouble sleeping, concentrating, or enjoying activities they used to enjoy.

  • Arousal and reactivity: People with PTSD may have symptoms of hyperarousal, such as being easily startled, having trouble sleeping, or being on edge. They may also have angry outbursts or reckless behavior.


It's important to remember that everyone experiences PTSD differently. Some people may only have a few symptoms, while others may have many. The symptoms can also vary in severity.

If you think you may have PTSD, it's important to seek professional help. There are effective treatments available that can help you manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
