More people need compassion. PTSD is serious, debilitating and can lead to suicide!

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.

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?

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.

I don't know how much good it will do, but it seems reasonable to do whatever we can to support our veterans. All gave some; some gave all.
