And the Rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air…is causing PTSD?!

It’s nothing new that veterans may come back from war physically safe and sound, but possibly end up mentally wounded. Usually, this mental wound is PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). The disorder is often joked about in movies and shows when an old man may wear a bowl on his head and shoot bullets using a broom at his family members after something has triggered him to reenter his days in Vietnam, however…

This can be real, and although fighting for our country can give one so much pride and be greatly rewarding, sometimes, it just isn’t worth it.

Do soldiers go into battle knowing that they could come back with PTSD?  They should, shouldn’t they? Do they have any idea how bad it (PTSD and war) could get? They may, but probably don’t. So shouldn’t something be done? Why can’t a test be developed that will determine the individual’s likelihood of getting the disease?


There is evidence that doctors have made the “requirements” for PTSD much too broad and as a result there have been thousands who were misdiagnosed…so what should we do, now? You tell me…

  1. Some genuinely good content on this web site , regards for contribution.

  2. I wanted to create you this little word to finally say thanks a lot yet again for your personal pretty ideas you’ve provided on this page. It has been particularly generous of you to provide unhampered all that a lot of people would’ve marketed for an ebook to help make some dough for their own end, most notably given that you might have done it if you wanted. Those inspiring ideas as well worked to become good way to be aware that someone else have a similar desire really like my personal own to understand a whole lot more when considering this matter. Certainly there are thousands of more pleasurable opportunities up front for individuals who see your website.

    • Well considering that I’m 15 and on the broke side (takes money to make money), I, in a sense, am incapable of making money from my site anyway. This started out as a school project also, so…yeah. I just like to blog…not in it for the cash. thanks so much for commenting along with all of the wonderful commpliments that definitely made my week.

Please comment. Constructive criticism highly appreciated
