Hello all. I live in an area that is near military bases. I work in a retail store that has quite a few military customers around their pay day. If I know they are military or veterans, I thank them for their service. I don't suffer with PTSD - disappointing crap I have been through (sexual abuse as a child, mental and emotional abuse the first 6 years of my marriage), I have resolved and do not relive to the point of distraction or worse. But I am concerned with the military and veterans I see. What is going on? Is it a combination of poor mental health VA treatment, feelings of isolation, pain, and poorly managed medications? Is it more insidious - spiritual attacks, or something beyond common knowledge? I was hoping there may be veterans with greater understanding to share in terms that are not too personal.
