How you develop PTSD

Are you aware how you develop PTSD?

There is a common misconception about PTSD. The condition, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to use its proper title, is not just something that afflicts those in the armed forces. While PTSD did first come to prominence as a condition suffered by soldiers and others during combat, the condition is now recognised as affecting the victims of accidents. How you develop PTSD can most certainly be influenced by the nature of the accident and injuries you suffered.

Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a personal injury claim if you have been the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault. If you have been injured in an accident within the last three years, needed (or are still receiving) medical treatment, then you could be entitled to receive personal injury compensation.

Suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

In the weeks and months after your accident you may well have started to suffer from periods of anxiousness without understanding why. This is one of the symptoms to look out for when trying to answer the question of how you develop PTSD.

Anxiety, mood swings, depression, stress, all of these can be attributed to PTSD and can leave the accident victim alienated from family, friends and work colleagues. In some instances, such is the severity of the PTSD; the sufferer may require long-term psychological care.

If you have been involved in an accident, or have witnessed an accident, you could be suffering from PTSD and may well have found your life has changed dramatically. Sufferers of the condition are prone to becoming reclusive and lack self-confidence that can spill over into their everyday lives.
