    Is it okay if instead of post traumatic stress disorder I put PTSD in my personal statement or should you try to avoid the use of shortenings if you're using the word once ?

    Write PTSD then put the full word in brackets next to it. From then on you could just refer to it as PTSD

    I'm only saying the word once that's the dilemma so should I just write Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ?

    It’s fine to abbreviate things like this where the abbreviation is more common than the full thing
