Post Tramatic Stress Disorder

After suffering from any stressful or traumatic experience it is possible to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

You can view this page in Spanish or English
The symptoms include:

- anxiety
- depression
- social withdrawal
- nightmares
- loss of concentration
- "flashbacks"-when intrusive images of what happened come back. This can be triggered by noises or the sight of certain things ie anxiety on seeing a policeman.

In order to prevent this illness from occuring it is very important to talk about everything that happened to you, and how it made you feel - to keep reliving the events. This may be painful and stressful, but it is the only way to work things through.
You can talk to friends, strangers, in groups or with trained counsellors. If you keep going through the events, feelings of anxiety, fear, guilt and anger will subside.
