Trauma What is Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? When you are in danger, its natural to feel fear. This fear causes many rapid changes in the body so that it can prepare itself to defend against danger or to prevent danger. This "fight or flee" reaction is a healthy reaction, intended to protect a person. With PTSD this reaction has changed or is damaged. Even if you're no longer in danger, you may feel stressed or frightened. PTSD develops after a terrifying experience with physical harm or the threat thereof. The injury may have happened to a loved one or you have witnessed a shocking event with loved ones or strangers. Reliving the trauma -    Nightmares -    Flashbacks accompanied by physical symptoms such      as palpitations and sweating -    Terrifying thoughts Avoiding symptoms -    Stay away from places or events that evoke memories      of the experience -    Emotional numbness -    Strong guilt, depression or worried -    Losing interest in activities that were enjoyable in the      past -    Problems with remembering the traumatic event Tenseness -   Easely scared -   Having a tense feeling -   Difficulty in dealing with sleep and / or having tantrums If the symptoms last longer than a few weeks and are becoming a permanent problem then it may be PTSD. PTSD is not about what is wrong with you It's about what happened to you
