Dec. 17, 2012 — People who worry constantly are at greater risk for post-traumatic stress disorder, according to new Michigan State University research published in the journal Psychological Medicine.
Many people experience traumatic events such as the death of a loved one, being assaulted or witnessing violence, but only a small minority develop PTSD, said study author Naomi Breslau, a professor of epidemiology at MSU.
“So the question is, ‘What’s the difference between those who develop PTSD and the majority who don’t,'” Breslau said. “This paper says people who are habitually anxious are more vulnerable. It’s an important risk factor.”
