Other Comments:
PTSD is nothing to be ashamed of - it is a desease we didn't ask for ! We need to encourage each other , accept each other and understand each other . By being open about our problems we can help others to get diagnosed and seek help . If we continue to work at it we can get better - but it takes WORK . I wish the best for all my brothers ! God Bless !
