Dude, this is horrible. I've suffered from PTSD since 2003 and to actually be labeled as being, basically, psychotic from birth, in addition to "basic" PTSD... I don't support the wars going on right now, I don't support the U.S. itself much (am Canadian and proud) I do, however, strongly support the troops, and to have this being done to them in addition to everything else? Just wrong, man, just wrong...

I reread this thread very carefully, and my last response to General Eyes may have been "out of line".

I am sorry if I offended you. I mistook your post entirely as to mean that those that serve have to prove their "benefits" and that PTSD is a bit generic until further testing. I can only disagree from my standpoint with an apology in hand. I was not attacking your Dad, but the use of Dad seemed out of place for me in context and I reacted negatively. Please accept my apology Publicly and sincerely!

Isn't lying for personal gain part of a personality disorder?

Well....I guess it is just a good case of transference on the part of the government.

I'd hire any vet that had an honorable discharge, PD or not.

I'd like to fire the government though.

urgh! this kind of attitude infuriates me. Denail is a way of fobbing them off and it is easier for the Govt.. That way, they avoid responsibility.

They continue to fail the returned servicemen & women.

I have PTSD also and the biggest issue for me going out in public is 'triggers'... if I trigger, big problems. I also know a Vietnam Vet who suffers from triggers. It is delibetating ... effects your life in so many ways.

Just terrible to read this. It is most definitely not an Adjustment Disorder.
It is POST Traumatic STRESS disorder.

Oh yeah, I know my triggers very well, for a time I couldn't even go to a small convenience store to buy smokes. I think PTSD needs to be better recognized and people need to realize how debilitating and dangerous it can be for sufferers. It's a horrible illness, and it does NOT just happen randomly.
Best wishes to your battle against PTSD, U2U me (if possible, am new user) if you'd like to share some techniques for dealing with it.
