What's the difference between chronic vs acute stress?

Acute vs chronic. Acute stress disorder (ASD) is a disorder seen in the first month following a trauma. Symptoms overlap with post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd), which isn't diagnosed until a month after the trauma. Over 80% of people with ASD also have ptsd 6 months later. Those with multiple previous traumas, other mental health issues, & who dissociate when seeing trauma, are more often affected with both.
