And they're even thinking about removing the "D" = disorder.
These macho commanders, from generals on down, until very recently espoused
the "suck it up" therapy for suffering soldiers. Lotta good that did for
human beings ruined for life by their experiences; suicides, drinking, drug
s, marital problems, inability to hold jobs & contribute to society, and on
Let's hope that now at least SOME commanders and their civilian oversight c
ounterparts in government understand, for cryin' out loud a simple truth:
Even if they don't give ratshit about the "wounded warriors" as human bein
gs, lack of care is costing society far MORE than early intervention and fo
llow-up care would cost. Your tax money at work -- for good, or ?

It was nostalgia btw that I had never heard about. The person wants to
live in the past, before he saw war. He doesnt' want to live in the
present. Therefore, they called it nostalgia.
I'll have to think about this. You're probably right, for one thing
because a guy who gets messed up in war is probably 100% likely to know
I haven't thought about soldiers or ptsd, but you hit a nerve regarding
the use of Disoder in adsd and add, with which they diagnose children,
including one I know.
I think it's terrible to tell a child he has a mental disorder under
most of the circumstances that cause these diagnoses.
When I was a child, this was called not paying attention, too much
energy, etc. various good or mild things that still needed rectifying
in order to be successful in school, etc. I never had these
characteristics (a better word than "symptoms") but I would think
tellilng a kid he has too much energy (too much for the situation) is a
complement that will make him feel good. Telling him he has a disorder,
especially if lasts more than a year, is a way to break his spirit.
I wish I had had this figured out before my friends let, I'm pretty
sure, their kid hear that he had adsDisorder.
Fellow at work was bragging how he is on the take. Seems that he was in the
army during the Vietnam era. He never left the states. A few years ago he
applied for some kind of mental dissability and got about 20% because he
worried that he may have had to go to Vietnam.
I never was in the military, but maybe I should apply because I may have
been drafted during that time.
