Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) (in Adults)
Current research suggests that the results of the PC-PTSD should be considered "positive" if a person answers "yes" to any two items or the single hyper-arousal item.
If you answered 'yes' to 3), or if you answered yes to any two items at all, then you may possibly have PTSD. See your doctor and/or health professional!
