Is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) a Mood Disorder?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is basically a disorder or mental illness .  It occurs when someone suffers traumatic event like earthquake , childhood accident , car accident .  When a person again face this type of situation he becomes so nervous.

Most individuals who have been exposed to these sorts of traumatic events develop feelings of anger, shock, fear, guilt, and anxiety. These are completely normal reactions to an unnatural event and will fade over time. A person who has PTSD develops such unusually strong feelings after such an event that they prevent him or her from living a purposeful life. Unfortunately the symptoms of PTSD aren’t reduced over time; usually these feelings intensify until the individual is overwhelmed and unable to function.

People with PTSD experience three different kinds of symptoms. The first one involves reliving the trauma in some way such as becoming upset when confronted with a traumatic reminder or thinking about the trauma when you are trying to do something else. The second set of symptoms involves either staying away from places or people that remind you of the trauma, isolating from other people, or feeling numb. The third set of symptoms includes things such as feeling on guard, irritable, or startling easily.
