Post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD) is an emotional disorder brought about by anxiety resulting from experiences that are threatening, very frightening and highly unsafe. The sufferers of this disease keep re-experiencing the event or events that triggered the trauma (Shiel and Stoppler, 2008). These people highly avoid people, other things, places that act as a reminder to the event and this is known as avoidance. PSTD sufferers are highly sensitive to experiences of life that are quite normal and this is known as hyper arousal. A formal diagnosis of this condition was made in 1980 although it has been in existent since time immemorial as endurance of trauma has been with mankind forever.
