Many people are familiar with the term post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but few may realize that they may be suffering from it. It’s commonly recognized that military veterans may experience PTSD, but they are not the only group of people who may suffer from it. Experiencing any traumatic event in life can lead to developing PTSD, such as childhood abuse, a car accident, domestic violence, or a toxic relationship.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression share a lot of the same symptoms and may even be diagnosed together, but is PTSD actually a form of depression? The short answer is no.
