Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD is unfortunately a very common mental health disorder. People can develop flashbacks, insomnia, anxiety, etc after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event. If these feelings last more than a few months, you may have post-traumatic stress disorder1 and it may be time to seek help.
Your partner or friend has said they’re worried about you. Maybe you can’t stop reliving the traffic accident you were in a few months back. You’re struggling with mood swings and low self-esteem. Or you’re avoiding social situations, and spending more time on your own – concentrating solely on work, and spending all your free time watching Netflix. Does this sound familiar?
