PTSD stands for post traumatic stress disorder which is a condition that develops when a person experiences or witnesses a traumatic event that threatens their well-being and leaves them feeling hopeless and helpless.

The symptoms of PTSD can be divided into re-experiencing symptoms, avoidance symptoms, hyperarousal and other symptoms.  


Hyerarousal Symptoms
Hyperarousal symptoms of PTSD include the following:
1. Anxiety

6. Excessive anger and angry outbursts
7. Difficulty concentrating
8. Being easily startled and having an exaggerated startle response

b. Meditate on anti insomnia Scriptures when you find yourself awake in the middle of the night like God gives His beloved sleep (Psalm 127:2) and I will lie down and my sleep will be sweet. (Adapted Proverbs 3:24)

c. Play Christian worship music on a very low volume during the night since In the night His song will be with me. (Psalm 42:8) 

In the night His song is with me Psalm 42:8
