wordweaverlynn: PTSD: Not all wounds are visible (PTSD)
This is remarkable -- and not surprising. Human beings haven't changed that much, and Shakespeare saw human beings as clearly as anyone ever has.

PTSD also shows up in Jane Austen, of all places: here's the passage. (The speakers are Anne Elliott and her brother-in-law, Charlesd Musgrave; the subject is his sister Louisa, who suffered a nearly fatal head injury from a fall.)

"I hope you think Louisa perfectly recovered now?"

He answered rather hesitatingly, "Yes, I believe I do; very much recovered; but she is altered; there is no running or jumping about, no laughing or dancing; it is quite different. If one happens only to shut the door a little hard, she starts and wriggles like a young dab-chick in the water."
