A rephrasing of the acronym PTSD
(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
the (often) consequent behavior
of those who were (or currently) traumatized.
Changed the 2nd part from an adjective to noun to generalize as it can be imprinted
by just hearing unpleasant news
as well as actual physical harm
The 3rd part personalizes as this describes the afflicted rather than the stressor by which the
4th (last) i.e. (usually crappy) altitude
has been modified from (original Psychology term) PTSD.
A (very) common result is that those afflicted tend to use the trauma(s) as a "crutch" rather than recovering in a healthy way,
becoming pity whore
s and/or control freak
s to most people they interact with in their lives, often cynical wet blanket
s and bragplain
Many handicapped/infirm and/or dispirited people tend to develop Post-Trauma Survivor Disposition of which rather than enjoying Life, makes those around them exploited and/or miserable
