PTDS is very real and it's not a laughing matter...

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

there needs to be more awareness of this just like people post about cancer. They don't get it until they seen it up close and personal.

Male & Female are the usual target of the jokes & discrimination, but Cops, Firefighters, Doctors, EMTs, Battered Women, Abused Children etc. can all suffer from this affliction. Oh, it also rarely manifests itself in violent behavior. PTSD, does not discriminate by race, gender, politics, religion or age. Many men & women are is serious need & will not seek help for fear of being labeled ,outcast or being relieved from employment.

If regional VA hospital is anywhere as good as one Houston, should find good PTSD support group there. Ask PC for referral to IMH (mental health unit). When seen at IMH, ask to be referred to a PTSD support group. Will find less people mocking you and more who sympathize AND empathize because they have also been where you are.
