Any traumatic event can cause a stress response, but PTSD is specifically exposure to real or threatened death, injury, or sexual violence. Other stressors such as losing a job or a divorce can cause similar condition called adjustment disorder (also known as situational depression). PTSD sufferers describe a wide variety of symptoms. For PSTD they have to relive the event (flashbacks, nightmares and intrusive thoughts are common) and display avoidant or dissociative behaviour – this means either avoiding events or conversations that remind them of the trauma, or not psychologically processing the event (or both).
