During the lockdown, there was a 25 push up challenge aimed at raising awareness for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). When I was challenged by a friend from university on my Instagram.com/pendulum_fitness, I thought I would do something different so I decided every day, along with my 25 push-ups, I would also post a fact I had researched about PTSD to further increase awareness and understanding of the condition. I didn’t realize the frequency of the occurrence of this condition as I had previously associated it mainly with war veterans. From the research I have done I have come to realize that this condition is very prominent in all populations and has the potential to affect everybody. With this list of facts on the condition, I hope to bring some clarity to what PTSD is, how it affects people, and some of the signs and symptoms to look out for, and what can affect it.
