1. having been homeless three times, I still have "mental scars"
all that was nothing compared to a young person, experiencing, war
2. PTSD impacts us all. Anyone who comes home and acts out in a store or bar or neighborhood is affecting people at home.
3. People DID have tougher lives and more was expected of them in the past.
They DID NOT get to even call home and had NO lap tops
AND STILL war is scaring and shocking and difficult to ever digest
4. most important ( I got a plaque from retired guys for my speech on this )
the basics are ignored.
ANY brain that gets dehydrated exhibits with belligerance.
Take a war-torn young brain, dry it out, give it barely any sleep
and tell it to just go on about it's day and don't freak out
is not a recipe for success.
I have an 8-part lecture and I'll try to find time to type it up,
if anyone is interested.
The resistance that I have met is of three types
1. I ain't a doc - CRAP - I am a teacher OF BASICS
basics that get ignored.
I am a teacher of personal trainers
2. somebody else wants credit for it and fears my resistance.
- CRAP - take my ideas and USE THEM!
save me and YOU from the effects of PTSD!
3. all other arguements that tend to be mumbley and vauge
and based on going after tiny details and ignoring the basics!
