Two Veterans shared their experience living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in an article that I thought I would share. I work with individuals with PTSD that have experiences with flashbacks, avoidance, hyper vigilance and nightmares that these men describe in this article. With help, the symptoms of PTSD can be reduced and treated. As spoken about by one of the men, EMDR is found to really help with the symptoms of PTSD.

“It’s like taking the explosive out of a hand grenade. Now you know it’s not going to go off. You still have the memory, but they take the emotion out of the memory. At the same time you are getting your deep sleep so you are healing.”

More awareness and support is truly needed to support Veterans and all that they face when they come home without the stigma that gets attached to seeking help and support. If you are experiencing PTSD symptoms, please contact us today.
