Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by experiencing a significant, unexpected traumatic event such as a car accident. People who suffer from PTSD experience nightmares, and persistent and obsessive recollections of the trauma.They grow apprehensive when faced with situations resembling the traumatic event. Without help they cope by avoiding actions thoughts or feelings they associate with the accident. They become detached and tend to avoid situations, persons, or activities associated with the accident. That in turn leads to disturbed sleep, irritability and difficulty concentrating. All this takes an enormous toll on the victim’s job, social life and on his or her family.
