I really like my approach. We discuss the symptoms and we discuss how to kill those symptoms. When this is accomplished the hard work is done.

I know 3 Veterans that are 100% disabled by the VA for PTSD. Think they want to be cured and lose that? I don't know. I was 100% with Prostate Cancer because of AO, but I was glad to get reduced to 40% when the cancer was cured.
Don't get all pissed at me, I am just asking a question.

You know I had that exact thought many years ago. lol

Right before I retired from the army I was walking in a nice large Wounded Transition Unit building. I tend to scan and something caught my eye. I saw two senior NCOs sitting down on a couch together looking into oblivion. I went to them and introduced myself. I was point blank about it. I asked, "Do you have depression, anxiety, guilt, insomnia, stress, regrets, and racing thoughts?" Both replied yes. "Do you want me to help you?" Both replied yes.

I worked with them for several months. I gave them perhaps one PTSD therapy task to do once a week. We were slow and methodical, but they turned their lives around 150 degrees and became new people after a few months. I healed myself with the methodology I used on the senior NCOs. I learned that I can heal some people, and I love it.

Yes back to the topic. I was thinking how the hell are these happy senior NCOs going to act like they have PTSD. lol

PTSD is always present. It never goes away. Its one trigger away from overtaking one.

PTSD isa mental disorder. When you get to 60% it can be used to declare you unable to do a job. Once it is on your records it is a stain that will not go away. Same with anxiety disorder.

SSG Edward Tilton PTSD is ones body's reaction to trauma. So unless you can wipe ones existing memory clear of the trauma one will always have PTSD. All one can do is learn and avoid situations and other triggers that bring the incident forward.
