Sometimes, for whatever reason this does not happen.   PTSD can develop months or years after the event.   The bad feelings associated with the memories of a traumatic event or events may be so painful they take over your life and result symptoms that you may not necessarily associate with the original event. When symptoms are affecting the way you live your day to day life then it is time to get help.  If you have tried talking therapies such as counseling or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and, or medication, but are still  having difficulties it may be time to look for an alternative or additional treatment.
