Posttraumatic stress disorder 

Trauma is a natural emotional reaction to terrible experiences that involve actual or threatened serious harm to oneself or others. For some trauma survivors, the thoughts or memories of these events seriously affect their lives, long after any real danger has passed. This is posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a serious anxiety disorder.
