He took a job he knew could kill him one day. He wanted to serve his community and save lives. He was an organ donor, so, yet again, he wanted to save lives. So why did the lives of others mean so much to him, but his own did not? Because he never got the message that PTSD is not anything to be ashamed of and those he served with would have tried to save him too!


  1. so sad it is an every day fight to keep going and not quit. i scare myself once in a while,but i am still fighting,god bless us all

    1. Never give up! You are a survivor and your life can is in your control. You took power away from PTSD as soon as you started to fight back. And now, find what works for you to heal. Remember, PTSD actually means you were wounded. "Trauma" is Greek for wound. And as with all wounds, they heal. That is what you always have to remember!
