Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thank youCustomer I am just a little confused when you say that PTSD is not "person specific". Don't specific events affect everyone differently. For example, two people may experience the same event and what may be traumatic to one may not be traumatic to someone else? One person may end up with PTSD and the other not affected at all?
Another example, if someone was in a minor car accident... feared for their life in the moment but objectively looking from the outside there was never really a serious threat of life or injury... PTSD could not be diagnosed based on your answer, right?
