    There are some great advances in psychology today, especially in eye movement therapies. There is one called Accelerated Resolution Therapy or ART that has some great science backing up their claims to resolve trauma.

    you could get a listing at the vfw in your area and even go door to door if you had the time. That would be a very sweet gesture.

    I live with PTSD everyday and some are really bad. The VA has been trying to help and actually have some. I take meds for my anxiety and to sleep. Dreams, reliving during the day, falling apart for no reason, and severe relationship issues.. With all that said the meds have helped some and I just finished 7 months or Prolonged Exposure therapy. The therapy was rough and made it mush worse for months but I can honestly say I have improved because of it. I don't feel it will ever be gone but things are better than they were for me.

    Good luck brother, I hope you can find something that works for you to get some relief.

    This sub was formed for guys like you and I..that have been around the block 100 times and dealing with real issues..

    Welcome back and jump in the Mix..Vets are the backbones of many things..and here they are greatly needed and appreciated..It isn't all about PED's..or PR's..

    No it's about facing life head on,our trials ..our failures..our stories that not only inspire..but pull some from the Hell they are in to a better place..really just helping our family here..

    So..if you think you have nothing to give..read some post..we all have something to give back..
    When older guys give back..younger guys move forward..the smart ones anyway..

    I have found some Peace in my Hell..but I know other are suffering..and it's a shit sandwich at best..I know PE that took their lives over PTSD..I miss some of them still...It doesn't have to come to that..but sometimes we will do anything to just stop the pain..Been there far too many times..

    I started this thread for the ones afraid to talk,the ones deep in it,the guys like you..and guys that found Something..Anything..

    It's a subject not many talk about..and that's wrong..most PE just don't get it..Im happy for them..
    But...for the ones that do.. Don't ever give up..!

    The ONLY thing that works for ME is hard work- clean eating and exercise .Drugs - pain killers and therapy just makes mine worse .I have friends that do the VA thing and it has just aged them and made them lazy and weak .I just ignore anything related to service and life goes on .I will be 70 soon and lived with one kidney since late 69 - plus i managed to survive tumors and most recently a severe seizure .( plus bad car wrecks ) and a hunting accident where I was shot again .This is what works for me - is different for everyone - hang in there guys -Thanks-OD

    For me, therapy has helped me to see it coming and try to respond instead of react to triggers, I take meds at night and isolate at home when it gets rough, red vein kratom has helped me deal with the anxiety of being in public and public interactions for the most part, I used the gym as my therapy for many years before I got into therapy with someone able to actually help me through some of it, I need kratom and thc at night to get get my mind to slow down, none of this is text book but it works for me, it took me a long time to sort through what works and what doesnít for my situation, itís a constant in my life but Iím able now to enjoy life more than I ever thought I could, staying positive and surrounding myself with quality people has been a step in the right direction as well, getting together with my brothers from the Corps is comforting in a way I canít describe, I wish we could get together more but life is hectic and we are scattered all across the country so we seem to make it happen every 6-10 years as a group, being a grandpa has given me a strength I didnít expect, I live for the little ones in my life and want nothing more than to help send them out into the world fully armed for success, thatís the crib notes for my story, I hope everyone finds the things they need in their lives to flourish despite PTSD, Iím sure it will be with me always but I have more good days than bad now and thatís enough for today, Iíll worry about tomorrow when I get there, sorry for rambling, itís hard to put it on paper or in writing because it comes at me so fast
