Critical Reading—zoeyzoey

Is PTSD contagious?

  • This question states that something that someone gets from a tragic situation.
  • PTSD is thought of as a big issue where people seem to react erratically to small things that may annoy someone normally but we do not outburst to it.
  • Its stating a question due to it placing the word “is” before PTSD.

Brannan is hypervigilance and hyperaware of everything. She had never been to war and is going through difficult time. She is reacting to things in ways she shouldn’t. She has a bad temper and is very impatient.

“Brannan Vines has never been to war, but her husband, Caleb, was sent to Iraq twice, where he served in the infantry as a designated marksman.”

Brannan’s husband, Calab went to war and came back with a brain trauma.

“Calab has been home since 2006, way more than enough time for Brannan to catch these symptoms.”

  • The question previously was “is this contagious?”
  • They do not watch tv at home because it triggers it.
  • Their house is far from the town which gives them more time are home to be spent with no neighbors to interact with and for more noises to hear in the secluded area.

“Whatever is happening to Calab, is as old as war itself.”

This just comes to show that many people during war get PTSD. Some people do not know how to react to those that have it and aren’t very happy to know that there are people that can get affected in this way. Doctors themselves do not even know what causes this to some individuals. It is still unaware what strikes the brain to act the way it does.
