PTSD - A must read story

This soldier's story is a must read. So poignant. When we tally up the price of war these are the often forgotten statistics.
"Dark, ever-present and so very, very cold: This is how post-traumatic stress disorder feels. It never goes away. On bad days, it is so close you can’t breathe. On good days, it is off in the distance like a gathering storm whose cold wind only just touches your neck."
I have no words to even begin to convey my feelings; sorrow, admiration, sympathy, love, pain.  They are all so small and do not do justice...

  1. I agree. It's immoral that we ask them to do these things and then forget them when their task is finished. There must be a lot of angry, disillusioned ex-service members out there. Their anger is appropriate.
