Here is my latest article about P.T.S.D.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.) is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to a terrifying event or ordeal . It can affect those who personally experience the catastrophe, those who witness it , and those who pick up the pieces afterwards , such as emergency workers , carers, medical staff and counsellors.

The list of events associated with P.T.S.D. is endless, ranging from, war, natural disasters, car or plane crashes, terrorist attacks, sudden death of a loved one, to rape, kidnapping, assault, sexual or physical abuse and childhood neglect.

Consequently, we are left in a state of unidentifiable, confusion and panic , exhibited in a panoply of physical and psychological anxiety based disorders .
