PTSD: when it at it's wors't.

Post traumatic stress syndrome it is at it's worse when the sub-conscious mind is at it's peak. There are countless books that try to explain what it is and how to best cope with the mother of all illnesses. I would rather have a doctor tell me that I am suffering from cancer. I know, it sounds crazy, but that is just what PTSD is. A doctor can tell a patient how he had gotten cancer. The risk factors, blah blah blah. Treatment for PTSD has come along way in the past 20 to 30 years. Unlike with PTSD. It is misdiagnosed than any other disease. Men, who join the Army, Marines,and Special Forces do not realize the harmful impact the diagnosis of PTSD reeks havoc of everything the sufferer touches. The Military Commanders are as much to blame as the patient himself. So LET US TAKE A LOOK at what is exactly Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We will start at the most severe headed to the least severe.
1.) This is my list. A disabling anxiety that might develop following exposure to one or more likely events. Trauma is one or more likely events. A trauma is an that causes intense fear during which the individual may feel like they(or someone very close to them) are about to experience serious harm)or are about to die. These manifest into sleep disturbance, recurrent dreams, usually in the form of nightmares. PTSD is a psychological condition that affects those who have experienced a traumatizing or life-threatening event such as combat, natural disasters, serious accidents, or, violent personal assaults.
PTSD has gained recognition in recent years because of its emergence in many Vietnam veterans. Victims or this disorder tend to re-live over and over very painful or stressful situations and often have nightmares about the event. We, in the media have termed these events 'flashbacks'. It is important to note that PTSD is a psychological condition that affects those who have experience traumatizing or life-threatenings with no way of dealing with the hellish event they had just witnessed.
I am suffering this very same condition. In the next few weeks we will delve into what makes one person take his service revolver, or automatic, and end the pain once and for all. What makes people choose another route? Stick around, theblogmeister
