I'd love to help---reach me at bafi011@gmail.com. Frankly, I've never heard of anyone mocking a VET with PTSD. I'm not signing the petition because I'd hate to think one afflicted with PTSD is being mocked! I'm willing to sign this petition one issue at a time. Please change it so I may sign, also. Or, educate me on our military being mocked.

Beverly, the stigma of PTSD gets passed a long by stupid jokes. One of the worst is that PTSD is not real. It's just another way to milk the system.

Another is that if you have PTSD, you are weak... or crazy to start with.

I hired a law firm to represent me in a divorce. The law firm was my worst enemy. It openly used my PTSD against me, so they could over-charge me, bill me falsely, come to court unprepared, etc, etc etc. I kid YOU NOT...

Who would believe a 'Rambo-type-vet' against the word of a powerful law firm?

PTSD and the stigma attached to it is why so many people, NOT just Veterans, refuse to seek treatment. Veterans both

PTSD affects more people than just military men and veterans....it affects a lot of everyday people as well. I think more awareness of this is a good thing for people and can assist people in having a better understanding of eachother.

Anyone who mocks us, needs a good education on why we are the way we are by going where we've been, doing what we've done and seeing what we've seen. We're not crazy, we're wounded.-Nuff said
