Did you know that Mick Jagger was diagnosed with acute traumatic stress disorder after the death of his girlfriend L’Wren Scott’?
The 71 year old singer postponed their tour of Australia and New Zealand after his girlfriend of 13 years hung herself.
Acute traumatic stress disorder can lead to symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, feelings of guilt and emotional numbness.
If they persist for more than a month it becomes Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the condition usually associated with soldiers returning home from battle.
