I wanted to know more of the long term mental effects that the bombing had on the survivors. I found out that it was hard to determine what was from radiation and what was actually psychological. I learned that many of the people suffered from what would later be known as PTSD ( post traumatic stress disorder). They would retell the stories and become upset. They had feelings of being ashamed and guilt. They would suffer breakdown. They would worry about the health of their children. Many of the survivors have went to higher powers trying to figure out the lessons from the bomb.
