Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is brought on by a terrifying event (either experiencing it or witnessing it). Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as reoccurring thoughts about the event.
Many people who go through a traumatic event have great issues adjusting and coping in their everyday lives, but they don't have PTSD — with time and good self-care, they usually get better. But if the symptoms get worse or last for months or even years and interfere with your day to day functioning, you may very well have PTSD.
If this is the case then seeking help is very important and can improve your quality of life greatly.
