What is PTSD?
After a trauma or life threatening event it is common to have upsetting memories
of what happened, to have trouble sleeping, to feel jumpy, or to lose interest
in things you used to enjoy. For some people these reactions do not go away on
their own, or may even get worse over time. These people may have Posttraumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD). Read more about PTSD below.
