Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) as the name depicts, defines a mental condition that follows by threatening and terrifying events either physically or psychologically experienced or witnessed by the sufferer. PSTD triggers awful past flashbacks, dreadful nightmares and fearful yet uncontrolled thoughts. In serious cases, a patient is said to be prone to post-traumatic pressure that results in hyperarousal. Sexual assaults, exposure to serious injury, warfare and witness of devastating unfortunate events prompts PSTD.

Post- Traumatic stress disorder is commonly found in War Veterans. Secondly, children can also have this disorder due to terrible family history, painful memories and abusive childhood. It develops differently among sufferers. However, it takes days, weeks and years to appear.
