Soldier and PTSD


June is National PTSD Awareness month and while it is not always military related, many of our Veterans suffer from it.

According to 'Post-traumatic Stress Disorder can occur following a life-threatening event like military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or violent personal assaults like rape. Most survivors of trauma return to normal given a little time. However, some people have stress reactions that don't go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. These individuals may develop PTSD.

People who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, and feeling emotionally numb. These symptoms can significantly impair a person's daily life.'

The Veteran is not alone in their suffering. This can affect the whole family and how they deal with it makes a difference in the treatment and outcome.

To all who have served, we are with you.
