PTSD   Leave a comment

This is short for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Most unfortunately, a lot of our soldiers have this when they come home from the war. It interferes quite a bit. Some signals, tremors, ( shaking ) lack of concentration, or some memory loss, interrupted sleep. And, flashbacks can be really bad cause the person feels out of control. Another big one is depression and loss of appetite.
 
Chances are, you won’t know when you are around someone with PTSD unless they say something. This is not a mental illness. Rather, it’s emotional and the two should not ever be mixed.
 
Folks that have this have been through something that was very traumatic and it will do a real number on them. It can be difficult for them to mix with others cause they may fear rejection. Again, this is emotional not mental. They may feel that if they keep to themselves, there will be less chance of being hurt again.
 
They need understanding and patience and must be able to learn they can trust someone, anyone. This is what led me to write my first book. I know cause I live with PTSD.
