PTSD in the Military
When we sense danger, we instinctually experience fear. Fear triggers our body to prepare to defend ourselves against or evade from the danger. This so-called “fight-or-flight” response is a natural reaction meant to protect us. However, in people who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this response has been altered in a way that they experience fear or stress even if they’re no longer in danger.
