When Does PTSD Strike?

PTSD or Post traumatic stress disorder, can develop at any age,including childhood. The disorder can be accompanied by depression, substance abuse, or anxiety. Symptoms may be mild or severe, people may become easily irritated or have violent outbursts. In severe cases they may have trouble working or socializing. In general, the symptoms seem to be worse if the event that triggered them was initiated by a person--such as a rape, as opposed to a flood.

Symptoms of PTSD or Post traumatic stress disorder, typically begin within 3 months following a traumatic event, although occasionally symptoms do not begin until years later. Once PTSD or Post traumatic stress disorder, develops, the duration of the illness varies. Some people recover within 6 months while others may suffer much longer.

Not every traumatized person gets full-blown PTSD or Post traumatic stress disorder, or experiences PTSD at all. PTSD is diagnosed only if the symptoms last more than a month. In those who do have PTSD, the course of the illness varies. In some cases, the condition may be chronic. Occasionally, the illness doesn't show up until years after the traumatic event.
