Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops after a person has been exposed to a terrifying ordeal in which his or her life or safety was threatened. Military combat, physical or sexual assaults, accidents, and natural or human-caused disasters can cause PTSD.

PTSD sufferers experience insomnia, nightmares, persistent memories of events, and emotional detachment. They are also often easily startled.
