Readjustment and PTSD

Readjusting to civilian life after War can be difficult. PTSD is a common set of reactions to a trauma such as combat exposure, which could be experienced by almost anyone. Sometimes, it becomes a disorder (PTSD) with the passage of time when feelings or issues related to the trauma are not dealt with but are suppressed by the individual. This can result in problems readjusting to community life following the trauma. A delayed reaction may surface after several months or even many years and include some or all of the following problems:

  • feeling nervous, anxious, jumpy or paranoid
  • difficulty trusting, problems with authority
  • feeling guilt over acts committed or witnessed,
  • hyper-alertness and exaggerated startle reactions
  • having unpleasant thoughts and memories that will not go away
  • isolation and alienation from others
  • loss of interest in pleasurable activities
  • difficulty sleeping, nightmares
