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.

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.
