Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is the experience of reliving a past upsetting event over and over in your mind. Many people have witnessed or gone through a life-threatening event such as a car accident, cancer treatment, hospitalization of a family member, physical or sexual assault, death of a friend or family member, childhood abuse or domestic violence. Some life events may not be life-threatening but can have a long-term distressing impact such as a loss of a job, separation or divorce, chronic illness or relocation. If you find yourself thinking about an upsetting event over and over, have intense emotions such as anger or sadness that don't resolve or repeated nightmares then you may be experiencing PTSD.
