Transcript of Donald Duck: PTSD?

Does Donald Duck Suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

An examination of War's effects on Donald Duck
Before Donald went "Over There"
Donald is mild mannered, he reacts to situations as ridiculously as one would expect a cartoon character to- never maliciously though
This is how he handles missing food from the fridge pre-war
Just your everyday average anthropomorphous duck
Post War
Donald shows many telltale signs of PTSD such as:
re-experiencing a traumatic event
Increased anxiety and emotional arousal
Feelings of intense distress when reminded of the trauma
Irritability or outbursts of anger
Feeling jumpy and easily startled
Some examples
Explosive Anger
Do you remember the fridge incident?
This is how Donald handles it now:
Immediate bursts of anger even though Donald is known to sleep-eat
So Donald got help
He talked to a psychiatrist who uses a combination of psychoanalysis and anti-depressants to treat Donald and make him a healthy duck
No Happily Ever After
Just Happier
Although not curable, PTSD is treatable and people who suffer from it can lead happy lives
Donald is Drafted
Donald Suits up to fight the Japanese in World War II
