9781491700204: PTSD and Me: The Story of My Struggle with Myself after Iraq

When Dennis James Williams returned home after fighting in Iraq, he had a hard time fitting back into society. He was under financial stress and could not communicate with his wife. Much of his time was spent trying to find a place to work so he could provide for his family. But what turned out to be his worst problem was something he didn't want to admit he had-post-traumatic stress disorder. In this gut-wrenching personal account, Williams looks back at a downward spiral that led to alcohol, drugs, and other crutches. Finding a path that led to something better took a lot of work and time. Each time he thought he'd found the way out, he'd realize it was just an illusion. Whether you are a veteran or you know someone who is one, there are signs of post-traumatic stress disorder-you just need to know how to recognize them. After that, it's a matter of accepting the problem and seeking help. Williams met the challenge, and in PTSD and Me, he imparts that there is hope for other soldiers with this disorder.
