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!

dammit

VERY valid point
There's an outreach program going on June 16th, 2010 in the Boston area that includes a PTSD specialist in Family and violence control. Usually 2 to 3 Veteran advocates are on hand from local and state level to help with other items of concern -- benefits and suicide concerns being some.

OPEN TO ALL VETERANS in the area Driving Directions to the meeting room

Thank you!

I do find that most of these programs ignore the dehydration factor
and the fact that dehydration-caused anger starts in within an hour of the last water intake

Thought to bump this back to the top with a only tangentally related story.

At a meeting to day one of the participants descirbed how when the Viet Nam veterans first begain reunions and large scale meetings he was suprised by the former 'in country' nurses who wanted to talk to him about his amputations. These nurses had been in the forward hospitals where the wounded were stabilized and sent on imeadiatly. They had seldom or never seen the final results of their efforts, just a series of mangled young men they saved and loaded onto air transports. Jim found these former nurses badly needed to talk to the former wounded for some sort of closure on what their efforts had come to. He closed by remarking how these former nurses showed PSTD symptoms as bad as any of the combat veterans he had worked with.
