  1. Recently I made mention on Facebook about a child experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD). Some were surprised that a young child could have experienced anything that would cause them to suffer PTSD.
    Many of us know that the abuse and sexual abuse that happens to a child is horrendous. When that child is forced to keep silent and at times forced to lie about the abuse and say it did not happen then it seems obvious that PTSD events will occur. Their minds have to have an outlet or they cannot survive.
    Watching a child relive their sexual abuse and realizing that they are actually reliving the pain and terror as they retch, gag and beg for help is the most helpless feeling. This is not a nightmare. This is an obvious eventand you cannot bring them out of this state.
    There are less obvious events that may be confused as behavior problems which I why I posted this article. Petina
