The onset of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs after a traumatic event or protracted exposure to severe stress. While many individuals diagnosed with PTSD suffered from childhood trauma, such as sexual or physical abuse, there are also cases of post-traumatic stress disorder caused by experiences in war zones, a house fire or a car accident. PTSD is a very real condition that can severely impair a person’s ability to function in everyday life. Even if you suffered traumatic events years or decades ago, the consequences can be lasting. Some symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder include: nightmares, flashbacks and insomnia, depression, anxiety, acute vigilance and startle responses, anger outbursts and unpredictable moods and poor impulse control
Because cases of post-traumatic stress disorder are often difficult to diagnose, it is very important to seek proper medical attention and treatment as soon as possible. Not only will treatment aid in addressing symptoms, but it will also establish a record of care so that you can demonstrate you difficulties to the Social Security Administration (SSA). We have experience helping veterans and others seek appropriate care and counseling to document a valid claim for Social Security disability benefits. The damaging effects of a traumatic or stressful event can be chronic and long-lasting. We can help you get the PTSD treatment and financial assistance you need.
