As we all know, America is fighting a war with a brutal and horrifying country.  Some of the men and women that are taking place in this war see some disturbing and terrifying footage of some of the events that take place over there.  Sometimes after returning from the war, some individuals may leave all of this behind but often these images of stuck in the heads of many soldiers and cause a problem known as PTSD.  Trauma is defined as a "disordered psychic or behavioral state resulting from severe mental or emotional stress or physical injury" (Merriam-Webster, Para 2).  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a problem that many men and women have after returning from a war zone.  This can also be found in individuals who have encountered any type of traumatic event like a car accident.  This research will be a great learning experience for everyone and will be very interesting to learn more about and understand what some individuals have to live with everyday.  It can be very hard for someone to admit or come out and say that they are diagnosed with this terrible ordeal.  That being said, most individuals will not come out and say they have this so even ones best friend or neighbor could be living with PTSD and one would not even suspect it or know they have it.  This research blog will contain research and facts for treatments of PTSD, symptoms, signs of how to detect, examples, diagnosis procedures, and counseling options.
