PTSD is an anxiety disorder that some people (not just veterans and active military personnel) develop after seeing or living through an event that caused or threatened serious harm or death. PTSD may result in sleep problems, irritability, anger, recurrent dreams about the trauma, intense reactions to reminders of the trauma, disturbances in relationships, and isolation. Some people may recover a few months after the event, but for others, it may take years. For some, PTSD may begin long after the events occur. However, PTSD can be treated.
