PTSD-BBC 5 pt Series

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by SKJOLD, Aug 15, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just read the widows story. I might appear a bit synical here, but perhaps the fact that she had an affair five weeks before her husband returned may have had an affect upon the poor bugger. Looks to me like she's in denial and using the war to excuse her own misgivings. No doubt the females on the site (and those in touch with their feminine side) will disgaree .

    Must be hard to take, finding out that your missus was having it away when you were at war. Pretty sordid business.

    Makes for interesting reading all the same. Must admit, I sort of agree with the ex Gunner. Stress seems to be a crutch for many. I'm not saying that genuine cases don't exist, but quite a few have cuffed it. My suspicions were backed up in a conversation with a Psychiatric Nurse from DKH a few years back.

    Go and visit one of the three Combat Stress treatment centres in the UK which are listed at their website
    http://www.combatstress.org.uk/home/default.asp

    In the US, there are over 40 such centres, funded by Federal money.

    ...then come back here and say it is an illusion that these brave,loyal hard working people are suffering from.


    Biscuits, if you think the majority of these folk are faking it, you've never met anyone with the condition.

    The worst thing is, the people who don't even know they've got PTSD and think something else is going wrong with their lives.
