A good video of what happens to soldiers in a war.

I can relate to this although I only watched a few minutes of it as it brought back too many bad memories of Vietnam.

http://vimeo.com/60896514 It's about 1 hour long.

I really want to watch this but my empathic overwhelm has only just crawled out from under the blankets...

War and the human plight within and part of it always interests me...

So tomorrow I will take a look..

I know I'm going to struggle to watch this. I've met a number of people with PTSD from growing up in wartorn countries. No person deserves that.

My brother has been to Iraq and Afghanistan. i feel so bad for him because he tries to play it off like its no big deal but I notice when he jumps at every loud noise and all that...

I really don't know what to do to help him either tbh. He tries so hard to hide it but he was clearly affected by whatever kind of stuff happened there.

They need deep psychological help and support sometimes for many years. There is not much that family can do but love and support them.

It was the nightmares that got me to the point that I couldn't sleep, reliving the incidents over and over. I had a good Psychologist to help me work through it.

There's a site called reset.me that looks at using psychedelics as part of the recovery process for PTSD, as well as other mental trauma.

In this revolutionary study examining the efficacy of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy vs. PTSD, 20 patients with chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD were either given MDMA and psychotherapy or a placebo and psychotherapy.
The results are nothing short of a miracle: 83% of subjects given MDMA and psychotherapy were cured of their PTSD symptoms compared to 25% of subjects who received psychotherapy alone.
The study also found:
There were no drug-related serious adverse events, adverse neurocognitive effects or clinically significant blood pressure increases. MDMA-assisted psychotherapy can be administered to posttraumatic stress disorder patients without evidence of harm, and it may be useful in patients refractory to other treatments.

Psychologists/ psychiatrists did nothing for me other than put me on addictive drugs. I quit cold turkey and now only take some Ativan at night, rarely......

One really must be careful with this however. I have friends with ptsd and smoking increased their paranoia which in turn increased their anxiety over the long term. I think it's a very personalized issue with no cookie cutter treatment. Most of all people with this issue need to be listened to and acknowledged... having fears and reactions validated in a compassionate way can go a long way to regaining the inner strength necessary to living with this condition. Sometimes being able to move from 'reacting' to 'thinking about the reaction' can help.

If they dealt with their issues, the paranoia would subside.
