Since this 'condition' exists and needs some kind of name...

On another topic someone said that PTSD is real and needs to be identified and named so it can be talked about.

I agree, and would suggest a simpler name PTS - Post-Traumatic Stress.

Why add the 'Disorder'? It's clearly redundant, since we wouldn't be talking about the 'PTS' if it weren't a 'D' of some kind.

The only purpose I see for adding the word 'disorder' at the end is to create a stigma that shouldn't be there, since it is 'something' that affects nearly everyone at some level at some time in their lives, just like JRS (Job Related Stress), Relationship stress, Money stress, sleep stress, etc etc.

Pandas can't drive.
