Veteran Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Overview
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can occur following a life-threatening event like military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or violent personal assaults like rape.  Most survivors of trauma return to normal given a little time.  However, some people have stress reactions that don't go away on their own, or may even get worse over time.  These individuals may develop PTSD.

People who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, and feeling emotionally numb. These symptoms can significantly impair a person's daily life.

PTSD is marked by clear physical and psychological symptoms.  It often has symptoms like depression, substance abuse, problems of memory and cognition, and other physical and mental health problems.  The disorder is also associated with difficulties in social or family life, including occupational instability, marital problems, family discord, and difficulties in parenting.  If you are suffering from PTSD, or know someone who is, the following list of resources and information will help you find help in dealing with PTSD and related conditions.
