Post traumatic stress disorder and the experience of stress in general was once believed only to happen to people who experienced grotesque gore, like veterans of war, police, and first responders. Today, trauma has taken on a new definition. Trauma is simply defined as a “deeply distressing or disturbing experience”. It is not restricted to violence. Most people will experience something they would call trauma at some point in their lives. Trauma can be experienced first hand (trauma happening to you), second hand (witnessing trauma happen to someone else) or third hand (being related a graphic experience of trauma). Though most people will experience trauma in their lifetime, few people will develop the full characteristics which would qualify them for a diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder. It is possible to struggle with numerous symptoms of PTSD, as an effect of trauma, but not be fully diagnosed with PTSD. You might feel a connection to some of the symptoms of PTSD but not experience them in full extremity.
