Do I Have PTSD?
Only a skilled and competent medical doctor specializing in psychiatry can definitively tell you if you suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Any type of traumatic event can cause a person to suffer from symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress, although PTSD is prevalent among those who experience military combat. Rape, sexual molestation in childhood, being physically assaulted, witnessing a homicide or suicide, experiencing a life-threatening illness, being a victim of a school or theatre shooting or domestic violence, losing someone or watching someone you love die, and numerous other events can bring about PTSD. The symptoms are similar, no matter what incident caused the condition.
