PTSD: A Problem since the Invention of War

Image
PTSD Post Traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be defined as an emotional illness rooting from anxiety that happens when a person was exposed to a scary, dangerous, and even life threatening event. The diagnosis may be given when a group of symptoms, such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyperarousal, continue for more than a month after the occurrence of a traumatic event.

The history of post traumatic stress disorder was not well documented until it was appropriately defined in modern times.

Some expand this definition to include vibrators. Others exclude penis prosthetic aids, which are known as "extensions".

These may resemble figures, or simply be practical creations which stimulate more e…

So take a guilt-free break from trying to win over the girl or guy of your dreams and focus on yourself for a little instead with the knowledge that everyone’s cool with it.

She answered, “I think it is something that is part of human sexuality and a part of something that perhaps should be taught” in the context of sex education classes. Ironically, the president never had intercourse with Monica Lewinsky, but rather, she testified, after she performed incomplete fellatio, he would masturbate into the sink in the Oval Office bathroom, not to mention ejaculating onto her blue dress. Sound like the pot calling the kettle black. That was the end of the first black Surgeon Ge…
