PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD can be hard to understand for yourself, family, and friends. Everyone lives with events and circumstance in life and your response is different for each event. Some events you cannot control, some you will get through, just fine. Others, not so much.

When any event occurs, you experience an emotional response. Each person will have their own response. You have probably heard someone talk about the "fight" or "flight" response. In the case of PTSD, the response is different than normal. The event actually exceeds your emotional ability to cope.

So, why is PTSD different? Your body gets trapped in the sensory experience you felt during the event. The medical community use the term.
