PTSD: 7 Reasons Why Suffering Veterans Aren’t Receiving Proper Help

jschri

1. Lack of Awareness– A portion of the general public are unaware of the disorder and the effect it has on people. The public needs to be further educated on the effects PTSD has on the brain and   the struggles veterans face on a daily basis while living with PTSD.

2. Lack of Desire– About 60 percent of veterans who suffer from PTSD do not seek help. This is due   to a variety of factors such as self-denile, embarrassed, pride, fear of being labeled, and fear of discussing the traumatic situation.

Bitter and Stressed Out by Unemployment

I wonder if you can feel the heartache and frustration in this veterans story?

It has been the roughest times in my life to be unemployed right now. Everything is so hard and I don’t know who to reach out to at this point. It seems like every job that I get doesn’t last and isn’t working for me.

It’s rough and miserable. I don’t have money to do anything life is hard and cold it seems. I’ve never had this problem before in my life and I’ve never felt so bitter and stressed out before in my life.

Advice

  • I don’t have advice right now, to be honest. Sell drugs? I think that earns people a lot of cash and I’ve been considering it.
  • I think that would be the best option, not hardly but I’m actually considering it.
  • Honolulu really is a twisted city. In the long run you see it and realize how cruel and sick people are, counting myself at one time. There’s hatred and racist garbage that always makes things worse.
