    I have had nightmares, flashbacks, sudden going on point at loud noises and other reactions to what happened to me in Nam in 1968, and 69. That all went away in time over an almost twenty–three year period until being again in a theatre of operations with the 1st Marine Expeditionary forces in the Persian Gulf in 91. After returning to the “Land of the Big PX” to coin an old phrase it all came back crashing into my head once again. It seems that it never goes away. After seeing VA clinical psychs and stupidly letting them get inside my head, I learned that I will never do that ever again. They only made it worse. Then they attempted to play the old psychological intimidation with me. In my opinion they are a bunch of clowns that have deep rooted problems of their own. These are my thoughts.

    The guys PTSD stuff is smart, but he only uses half of the cup. My wife experienced MST, suffers from PTSD from that incident, and we have been fairly well off in controlling it. Its 35 years later, but the symptoms that barely manifest back then are now becoming far more pronounced.

    The Psych who wrote this blog would blow her away as a fraud. I know better, I have watched this for years, how she regresses into herself, shuts out people who care for her, and still cant even think about going out and getting a job because of stress and anxiety.

    I watched documentary about soldiers of WWII. Almost all the guys who say combat or even came into contact with wounded seemed to me to have PTSD and this was 60 years after the events. They all had had nightmares and cried when describing events that happened when they were 19 years old and now they are 90 years old. No PTSD? Many of these guys had not spoken about what they saw to anyone in all these years yet talked to documentary film makers because someone was interested at last.
