There are some civilians blaming me for having PTSD or having symptoms, like its a choice or its my fault. This really pisses me off how shortsighted, acerbic, and stupid some folks can be.

There's a negative stigma on soldiers already. Too many civilians tend to ask the wrong questions. This is just one of many videos where they (civilians) are clueless and more often than not, ignorant.

I recommend the video from Ranger Up Veteran monologue, the shit I hear on a day to day basis at work is their version exactly.

Unless I tell my story, people are quick to judge and blame me.

I don't like retelling my experiences in-depth frequently; especially to strangers. People need to educate themselves on how to communicate to soldiers.

Unfortunately more often than not most civilians are not aware of really what PTSD is .
