Arthur, Kenny and Adam struggle to adjust to civilian life despite having PTSD.
There are tons of PTSD supports groups & doctors out there to help. You have to want to help your self. It's more or less like being an addict you have to admitting you have a problem. BTW the cop wasn't being a douche bag he was doing his job to keep people safe. 000a
i find this video unfair for the veterans that have PTSD. Everytime i think about these guys i think about my grandfathers best friend. Vietnam War really changed my grandfathers life and his friends life. I hope these veterans get the help that they really need
God Bless our troops and help them on their new journey when they come home. My husband suffers the same way and is stuburn to get help. It's an ego thing too some men . So all I can do is just stand by his side and listin to him.
Wow I hate cops even more
i had this crap..its your worst nightmare, its hell, i cant even explain! and the worst thing is people dont understant how bad it is, what ur feeling. I wouldnt sleep cuz i thought id die, if i had a headache i thought it was cancer, id think everyone wanted to kill me. And i was sooo embarraced, i only told a few people, i didnt go outside for 6 months, not even in my yard! I`m so glad its over..but im sometimes im afraid it comes back =/
i suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. i wasnt a soldier, i just had a very traumatic childhood... PTSD is a really hard mental illness to deal with unmedicated....i kno cuz i have been off and on for years with my PTSD.. but it took years of non stop heavy medications to get me where i am today... i can totally relate!!!! my life wwas hell when i first started dealing with my ptsd!!!
Aww, I'm so happy that he was found not guilty of DUI! That cop was such a jerk! He should have been thanking him for his service instead of treating him like dirt. That cop should be ashamed of himself!
I was diagnosed with PTSD as an adolescent and again as an adult (my family did nothing about it when I was a kid). It's not only soldiers, though I do have experience with Vets in my family who express the trauma. For me it was severe abuse I witnessed/experienced when I was young. I still have nightmares about having to stab one of my parents to save the other, or vise versa. When I reached adulthood, the flashbacks became dangerous for my loved ones. The biggest problem is trying to find help. Insurance does little to nothing to help when it comes to mental health providers, and psychiatrists want hundreds of dollars a week (most of my paycheck). I want so badly to feel safe around people, and to never hurt anyone in a flashback. But, finding the money is almost impossible.
douche bag cop.
This is the thanks we give our soldiers when they return? We should be giving them everything.
my heart goes out to those who have served in the war...who have died, and the ones who live today and still suffer from it's effect.... what they do is truly outrageous...and its sad to say...but someone has to step up to the plate
true heros can live thru this its sad but strength a true hero
i am an army veteran ive done a tour in iraq and i know wat its like to have ptsd i suffer everyday...... i have trouble sleeping and dont like be in crowded places and being in traffic scare the hell outta me ..i know wat these guys are going through.... OIF 08-09
I agree people have it rough in other ways, and what about the effect of PTSD on the families of these people too.
Thats really sad i just wish people would take 2 seconds out of there life to be thankful for everyone whos served our country and defended our freedom
My father is a Gulf War Vet. He has PTSD. He cannot work because of it. Everyone that has been on here complaining about "how boring" this show was, or that PTSD is not a big deal? PTSD ruined my childhood. PTSD ripped it away. Do you have any idea what it's like to wake up, not knowing what happened during the night, or if your dad was still here? How about wondering the next time he'll get sent to another program again, leaving you to take care of your mum and brother? People who don't know anything about PTSD should stop talking. You don't know anything about it.
this is sad
it most suck to have ptsd
it dosnt matter how many bullets fly over ur head if you ever went out side the wire your doing your job infantry leads the way. and people who think its boring cant relate even if u have some other sort of ptsd. i agree woman should be on here to try being a woman and being raped over seas and then having the war also! it happens alot
yeah was kinda boring
