What happened to them?
They experienced one or multiple traumas and are suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
It can happen to everybody: men, women, children, young and old. It can be triggered by an accident, physical or psychological cruelty, war, torture or due to a loss of a person.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a disease that can be cured by special therapy and there is no reason to hide or to feel ashamed.
