PTSD: Not Mental Illness, Not a DisorderSubmitted by Chris Coulroski on Mon, 02/04/2013 - 19:07
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not a disorder at all. It is a perfectly healthy reaction by a mentally stable person who is exposed to horrors and atrocities.
A true 'disorder' would be for someone to go through a traumatic experience and not have an adverse psychological reaction.
It is a cruel hoax to permanently label somebody as having a disorder when said condition is actually a perfectly normal and healthy response to terrible circumstances.
