Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): I have tremendous empathy for victims of war: civilian internees, concentration camp victims, prisoners of war, veterans returning home from war and refugee camps.
No one should suffer the emotional pain of PTSD alone. If you suspect you are suffering from this condition, please seek help. Speak to your doctor and your family. I am pleased that I can assure you that help is now available from informed medical personnel, psychiatrists and psychologists.
From among the many excellent books available today, I recommend these for PTSD sufferers and their families who want to understand the behaviour and anguish of their loved ones:
Courage After Fire by
Waking the Tiger Peter A. Levine with Ann Frederick
War And The Soul by Edward Tick.
