Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, is often noted in patients who have experienced a traumatic event during which they perceived themselves as helpless and unable to escape the circumstances.
PTSD has been noted as one of the most life debilitating conditions that can lead to secondary mental illnesses such as Major Depressive Disorder, Hallucinations and Delusions, sexual disorders, and of course several types of addictions such as alcohol, drugs and even pornography.
Families of afflicted persons with PTSD often suffer along with the afflicted person. Relationship dissatisfactions, domestic abuse, child abuse, elderly abuse, and even suicide are commonly experienced in the lives of untreated or poorly treated persons with PTSD.
