There was a time not so long ago when someone suffered a great trauma or a tragic event the sufferer was expected to get over it. The idea that real and lasting damage had been done was dismissed. Soldiers who suffered from what was called battle fatigue were called cowards and those who did not quickly get over a loss or a serious trauma were considered weak. Since then we have learned to call this and so much more post-traumatic stress disorder. That mental injuries are as real as physical ones. In this book I hope to explore the common types of this disorder. How to recognize it in yourself and others and the road back from it. I suffered through many years of nightmares and flashbacks before discovering that this was not normal, that I was suffering from this ailment. I found a way to deal with my PTSD and hopefully you will too.
