I don't know what's wrong, doctor. I have these flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about an event.
Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self- care, they usually get better.
Post traumatic stress disorder?! what's that???
PTSD is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event - either experiencing it or withstanding it.
Well, it seems as though you have post traumatic stress disorder, also known as 'PTSD'.
No need to worry, there are many ways to treat it. Turning to family and friends who will listen and offer comfort. Seeking out a mental health professional for a brief course of therapy. There's therapy, medication, a clinical psychologist / psychiatrist.
Well, what am I supposed to do ? Am I going to have it for the rest of my life?
