What Is PTSD?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is a neurological condition brought on by witnessing or otherwise experiencing an emotionally and physically intense event. It is a very common condition, and more than 3 million Americans are diagnosed with it every year. The condition is treatable by a medical professional with varying levels of success and requires a diagnosis. PTSD can last months or years and treatment is typically restricted to psychotherapy and medication to manage symptoms.

How Does PTSD Present in Women?

Similar to PTSD presentation in men, women may have nightmares, flashbacks and compulsive avoidance of situations that may remind the victim of the trauma. PTSD can have a crippling effect on quality of life and impact every aspect of a person’s life. For example, PTSD brought on from car wrecks can prevent sufferers from being able to ride in cars without significant distress. Intense emotional reactions to everyday situations can be exhausting and leave sufferers feeling depressed, isolated and feeling like they may never be able to experience normalcy again.
