Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is best known as a disorder of veterans of war. It can also be a response to other traumatic events in civilian’s lives. Here are three of the most common symptoms:

One:  Insomnia: Due to increased anxiety and emotional arousal.

Two:  Nightmares: Due to the subconscious re-experiencing the traumatic event.

Three:  Failure to Remember Certain Aspects of the Event: Due to avoiding activities,    places or thoughts that remind one of the traumatic event.
