Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has led me on a strange journey. I did not want the Vietnam War to define me and so fought off my demons for many years. I chalked up erratic behavior to personal quirks, never linking them or discerning any pattern at all. Until I was diagnosed.
I sought help for so-called “anger issues” which seemed to me not very natural for a guy in his 60s. This accounts for steps 1 and 2 in managing life’s difficulties: acknowledging a problem and seeking help. I am now a regular at a VA clinic and with a VA-approved counselor.
My aim and desire is to provide on this site an opportunity for all to receive and share insights about their “examined life.”
