TOPIC: What PTSD is

If it’s months after the trauma and you still have nightmares, are constantly on guard, feel detached from others or are avoiding situations that remind you of the event, you may have PTSD.  The good news is that there is good help out there.  And remember: it’s the event that’s abnormal. Not you. 

[PTSD] is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation - Dr. Abigail Angkaw, Clinical Psychologist
