Re-experiencing Symptoms: Memories and images of the traumatic events may intrude into the minds of those with PTSD. They occur suddenly without obvious cause. They are often accompanied by intense emotions, such as grief, guilt, fear, or anger. Sometimes they can be so vivid a person believes the trauma is actually reoccurring.

Avoidance Symptoms: Traumatized individuals attempt to avoid situations, people or events that remind them of their trauma. They feel numb, emotionless, withdrawing into themselves trying to shut out the painful memories and feelings. Friends and family feel rejected by them, as they are unable to show appropriate affection and emotion.

Arousal Symptoms: Fearing further trauma, PTSD sufferers are always on the alert, on guard, jumpy, unable to sleep, angry, irritable. Many also have concentration and memory problems.
