TSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, affects many people from all walks of life. Most of us think of PTSD as only having a real effect on war veterans and soldiers, but this problem also has dramatic effects on others who have been through something traumatic as well. It can even affect children who have been through a very daunting experience. Some of the causes of PTSD include physical, mental, or sexual abuse, fires, vehicle or airplane accidents, or serious events as a result of natural disasters. Others who might experience PTSD include rape or assault victims. Children tend to react differently than adults when they are coping with PTSD. For children, they will typically become withdrawn, quiet, and reclusive. When a person goes through a difficult and often life changing event, it can have serious mental impacts on the person's ability to function normally.
