Ptsd the new plague

Ptsd is ravaging this country. From the soldiers who travel the world to protect the innocent. To our police forces and fire departments who face life and death situations dayly.
Ptsd is causing a host of terrible situations in our country and effecting families everyday.
Treatment centres that remove the stigma and pain caused by this disease should be forefront in our health care. Alcoholism, drug abuse are all symptoms of this plague.
I am a nine year veteran with the Third Battalion Princess Patricia’s. Who was released in 86 and took until 2000 to find out I had a diagnosis of a mental problem at my release. Later diagnosed at UBC as complex ptsd and a major depressive disorder. VA HAS SENT ME TO “ family psychologist ‘ to work for an hour on a situation that took years to development. I’m now waiting to see a new psychologist in a month. So I’ve suffered my family suffered. And my brothers and sisters in arms are passing every week.
Ive spent time on long healing programs with The First Nations House Of Healing to help my symptoms but have not dealt with the root cause of my pain.
I am a Soldier and fight everyday to stay alive. My. Body is broken and my mind is compartments of bad experiences I can’t resolve. But I fight and am caretaker for my family. A work at having a purpose driven life
Finaly soldiers are not the only people suffering from this plague. Recently my Son passed from self medicating. He couldn’t sleep so he would consume a alcohol before bed to sleep. He had been stabbed in a home invasion. I had him here and sober for a month and got him feeling better. But he went back to his triggers and started self medicating. He passed from liver and heart disease from drinking.
Ben was a top Aircsdet and had lots of his cadre show up to tell how he had helped them and never given up on them. He was a Drum Sgt. Major who’s drum team won national competitions and performed at the grey cup . one terrible moment fighting for his life made him. Sick he srirvived being attacked in his own home. But did not survive the new PROGRAMING this experience began. His brain was changed as was his response to everything in his life.
Today movment is being made but places for groups to help ourselves our families and Suport each other and see we’re not alone. And find a way of helping to treat this killer.
When we share our stories in circles we see that we share a very similar story. And things we have learned that helps. And things that don’t.
Thirty years I’ve sought help and trued to share. I Survive on a reserve and today there is another funeral for the suicide of a young boy who found his mother who had hung herself it didn’t take long till he followed suit a beautiful boy. Lost in ptsd
and there will be another and another until we recognize peoples pain and help them learn how to cope with the pain we carry.
PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE
TELL YOUR FRIENDS. MANY MORE WILL PASS. UNLESS WE TAKE THIS SITUATION SERIOUSLY AND IT OUR BEST WERE LOSSING. IM FOING ALL I CAN TO FIGHT FOR THESE BRAVE PEOPLE.
