Default Welcome to the new Combat PTSD forum

We received a request from one of our members who is in the military and wanted to show our support of such members dealing with a specific type of PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) that may be especially triggering to non-military persons. So we setup this forum to allow our military and ex-military members to come and share their experiences and support with one another.

We hope you find this forum helpful in your recovery process.

DocJohn

I think this is a GREAT forum to have. I know that it will be greatly appreciated by all Military/ex-military that come here for support!

Thanks DocJohn!

Welcome to the new Combat PTSD forum I have experience also..and understand it quite well. I spent 10 years in USAF aux., have a brother who has PTSD from 'nam, have a son and a nephew in military now, etc. (My dad had ptsd from WWII, though it was called something different and was never mentioned IF it was considered.)

Welcome to the new Combat PTSD forum Talk about it... it helps.

in the old days it was called battle fatigue or shellshock. it wasn't until years after they came home from vietnam that the name PTSD came along.

I am pleasantly surprised and very impressed. It takes courage to open a forum on combat PTSD, since this is one of the last big taboos in our times. I appreciate that new forum very much!

And I hope this new place will bring some relief and comfort to those who suffer.

Talking can help a lot - yes, I think so, too. And I assume, there is a lot to be talked about. A lot of feelings that should come out at last.

To me, this is a brave step forward. I feel great respect. And I am confident that this site is a good and safe and caring place for any wounded, whatever the case may be.

Wishing well,
bluna

Dr. John,

Great idea and such a gift to give to help those in the military or out.

Thank you thank you thank you ...

It is very hard to find a forum to discuss combat PTSD.... There are a lot of "promising" sites when you google the term, but upon closer look ... hardly any place for vets to express the things that are so troubling.

Thanks to Doc John and the entire team at Psych Central

Troy
