True. Plus all the media sources want to be the first to break the information so they don't wait to confirm anything.

Yeah, its something we shouldn't have to do on our own soil. Hope I answered everything.

Re: Fort Hood Shooting

Well PTSD is a serious illness. If left untreated, like most mental illnesses, it can be dangerous.

My uncle is a perfect example of this from 'Nam

Re: Fort Hood Shooting

Usually I'm the one who's angry over people blaming mental illness on crimes. But when it comes to PTSD or schizophrenia.. I know first hand (if left untreated) those are not illnesses to take lightly.
But from what I understand this shooter was treated so who knows.

Re: Fort Hood Shooting

VA just gives you meds upon meds to "fix" PTSD... most made the anxiety/depression/suicidal thoughts worse.. and the meds that did fix the anxiety or depression had a long list of side effects that were not worth it in the end..
If the Army, or the VA really want to fix the soldiers.. I'd say figure out a way to help them naturally.

Well the Army isn't going to allow soldiers to start smoking medical pot, it'd be way too dangerous for people in the field. Hard to call your targets if you're stoned lol

I was diagnosed back in the mid 90's as suffering from traumatic experiences whilst serving in Bosnia. I had coping strategies from my childhood and to be honest I couldn't see how a bottle full of pills and talking to someone who just couldn't understand the gut wrenching feeling of approaching an isolated farmhouse you had passed days before and spoken to the occupants. When the closer you got you could tell they where now dead just by the smell, I'm not talking totally decomposed but the smell of blood, fresh death, flies hundreds or thousands over them, the maggots, the mutilations with genitals cut off pregnant women disembowelled alive and died holding their own unborn fetus....unless they have seen it how can they fix it?
They didn't care anyway really, as soon as I passed on the meds (wouldn't be able to touch a weapon for at least 12 months after coming off and subject to a phsyciatrists examination - basically end of your career). They sent me back out there for a final 6 month tour as my experience would apparently be good for a deployed unit going out there for the first time. I was eventually medically discharged not due to being fucked in the head but due to an injury sustained in Iraq during a mortar attack...they even tried the counselling route after that but the shrink stopped when I asked him if he had seen anything like the above.
I live with it now, it's like another me inside my body and it's up to the rational me to keep it subdued.
