Our Lives With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury

Fighting PTSD?

Are you or a loved one fighting PTSD? We’d love to hear from you! 

We are currently looking to add guest bloggers and contributors who have experience with PTSD and/or TBI. Are you a professional who treats PTSD? We’d love for you to share your expertise with various forms of treatment. Please send us a message on twitter (@fightingPTSD). If you already have a blog of your own relating to military with PTSD, please let us know so we can add you to our blogroll.

The fundamental purpose of this blog is to show others that there is hope when dealing with PTSD. By showing that this is a fight and that with hard work, patience and a strong support system, we can over come. We may never be ‘cured’ but we can continue to fight PTSD. This blog offers various viewpoints, veterans with PTSD, PTSD and TBI as well as the spouses views. The more aspects we can share the more we can offer the kind of hope that lets people know they are NOT alone.

  1. I would love to be a guest blogger. I am both a Veteran with TBI and PTSD and a mental health professional. My TBI was in the past year. I have been a clinical social worker since 2004.

  4. PTSD treatment for Veterans found ineffective.

    Eli Lilly made $65 billion on the Zyprexa franchise.Lilly was fined $1.4 billion for Zyprexa fraud!
    The atypical antipsychotics (Zyprexa,Risperdal,Seroquel) are like a ‘synthetic’ Thorazine,only they cost ten times more than the old fashioned typical antipsychotics.
    These newer generation drugs still pack their list of side effects like diabetes for the user.All these drugs work as so called ‘major tranquilizers’.This can be a contradiction with PTSD suffers as we are hyper vigilant and feel uncomfortable with a drug that puts you to sleep and makes you sluggish.
    That’s why drugs like Zyprexa don’t work for PTSD survivors like myself.
