    I didnt know i had PTSD from Vietnam till 1996, after it destroyed my life. I have been treated ever since by meds, but I am constantly kept from living a full life by anxiety disorder and depression.

    Imagine being surprised by a huge explosion that demolishes an aircraft close to you, and spending the rest of your life watching/expecting/waiting for the next explosion. I sit with my back against the wall everywhere i go subconsciously expecting something to blow up 44 years later.

    Being alone when we get back isnt the problem, we self isolate by choice. In severe cases like mine we cannot be in crowds and are not looking for recognition or a bunch of people to be around. We want to be left alone, that's why we dont make a claim to the VA.

    A purple heart is not a hero's medal. It simply means you bled as a result of enemy action. It could be that a mortar hit and you dove out of bed and cut yourself.

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my
    comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding
    one? Thanks a lot!
