I found a good book a few years back and finally read it over the past couple years. This is what drove hiome what PTSD really is. Befiore, I just thought it was stress. Never could understand some of the stuf the doctors said in their reports. But after reading this a few times, I know all too well. "Post-Trauma Stress- A personal guide to reduce the long term effects and hidden emotional damage caused by violence and disaster" - 1993 Frank Parkinson; Fisher Books. ISBN- 1-55561-058-7. $12.95 Anyone read this? What I did here is I would read a chpater, wait a day or two, and then re-read it this time emphasizing with a pencil. If you saw how many notes I have....LOL! When I read it all I could say is "this guy has been in my head!" Not sure how officially good it is, but it sure is a pretty good book in my eyes.
