Has anyone heard anything about the victims developing PTSD or something similar? I mean surviving the massacre and seeing your dead friends on the ground and blood all over, wouldn't that put a bad mental image in your head probably for life? I couldn't ever forget that horrible image.

Look at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s posts, and watch her videos (which she has created a topic about).

She is a survivor of the massacre.

Trust me, there's lots of PTSD and survivor's guilt amongst the survivors. Even for those who weren't there that day. Even, and sometimes especially, amongst the killer's friends.

I can't imagine how you couldn't. At that age and under those circumstances, I would suspect that is something that stays with you forever.

I agree with all the others. I would be amazed if anyone who was injured, anyone who saw the carnage and the poor people trapped in the library doesn't have PTSD and probably other issues as well. And especially when you're talking about kids enduring that. My heart breaks for what I can only imagine they suffer with.

It's a traumatic event so I'd be surprised if there was not a student in the library with PTSD.

Someone already mentioned me, so I'll leave it at that.

People can get PTSD from watching someone die from a heart attack.
