“I just can’t forget, it’s like an open wound that never heals”.
This is how someone with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) might describe how they feel about a traumatic event that happened to them in the past. This can be anything from a serious road accident, a violent personal assault, military combat or being involved in a terrorist attack to name just a few.
It doesn’t matter how long ago it happened they are still unable to forget and as a result it will impinge on their every day life and they might experience regular panic attacks, flash backs, insomnia, nightmares, anxiety, depression, irritability or even self-destructive behaviour. People with PTSD can get stuck and are unable to move forward and it can hold them back for many years to come.
Not everyone that has experienced a traumatic event in their life will develop PTSD but it’s estimated to affect 1 in every 3 people and the condition was only officially recognised as a mental health condition in 1980, even though incidences were documented during the First World War when soldiers developed symptoms as a result of the harrowing conditions they experienced in the trenches.
