There are a lot of myths related to PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. One of these myths is that PTSD is a condition we create ourselves. This myth is not true. In fact, millions of people in the U.S. suffer from PTSD every single day. PTSD is real, miserable, and treatable.
Another myth related to PTSD is that the symptoms of the disease do not improve. Fortunately, this myth is also untrue. PTSD is a treatable condition, where those suffering can experience improvement and even relief. If you or a loved one is a veteran suffering from PTSD, know that there is help available.
