  2. 2. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder- PTSD is a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event, either experienced or witnessed. Symptoms may include flash backs, nightmares, severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Avoidance, can be one of the most dangerous parts of this disorder for the person with it because they don’t seek help and it gets worse.
  3. 3.  PTSD is a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event, either experienced or witnessed.  Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, fits of rage or anger. They can interfere with ones ability to function daily.  PTSD symptoms are generally grouped into four types: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, or changes in emotional reactions.

  6. 6.  Seek help when you are having disturbing thoughts, you feel your life is out of control, difficulty maintaining close relationships, hopelessness takes over, lack of interest in everyday activities, or depression as well as aggression begins to lead to damaging situations  Anxiety and fear becomes out of control.
  7. 7.  Jesus, and prayer first  Mental Health Care Professional or Health Care Professional.  Close friend or family member  A Minister or spiritual leader of Faith  Call Suicide Hotline: 1800-273-8255 to reach a trained counselor.  Press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.
  8. 8.  “Home of the Brave” starring Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Beil, 50 cent, Christina Ricci, and Brian Presley.  This movie opened my understanding and it is a movie I truly enjoyed. It gave me a different perspective on how to in my case view my husband and realize its not his fault, problem is, he doesn’t recognize he has a problem.
