Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop following traumatic event such as, the unexpected death of a loved one, rape, assault, a natural disaster and war. The normal psychological response to such trauma is 'shock' or acute stress.

With post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) you remain in a state of mental shock and symptoms begin to worsen, including experiencing nightmares, feeling 'numb', and having continuous thoughts about the traumatic event.   PTSD doesn't always develop immediately following the trauma, sometimes it can develop several days or sometimes years later.
