What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is typified by an individual feeling high levels of anxiety following a particularly traumatic or distressing event.  The onset of this anxiety state may happen immediately after the event or may be delayed until sometime later in life. In some cases the negative thoughts around these events may lie dormant for many years until they are triggered and resurface.
