I have put my opinion upon this at the end. Please read this first, then read my comments. Now... see that bold piece I just highlighted at the end of this press release, that says to me, "conflict of interest!" You are now confusing what is best for a patient vs. what is best to help increase Dr Boscarino's bottom line worth for Geisinger Health Systems. That is exactly what I am pulling from this in regard to confliction of interest. I have no doubt this doctor is a great doctor, and looking to help better serve those with PTSD, but to me, it is not his greatest concern, but more about self publicity. People say to me, "so I suppose you don't watch war movies?" Now why would they say that? Because they presume that because my trauma stems from a war zone, then I wouldn't watch those type of movies. Well... when I first watched a few war movies, I did get triggers that reacted my symptoms again. Ok, no problems, as I identified a trigger. Then I told myself, "hang on a minute, this is just a movie, regardless how close the actual events of war are to one another, this is just a movie, and I am actually not physically within that environment any longer!" This was actually positive healing for myself, unlike what this doctor is trying to make this movie out to be above, being negative affects. I have no doubt at all that people who have a close relationship or trauma from the 9/11 disaster, will be triggered by watching this movie. But then you can sit down and say, "well, I just refuse to face my fears and trauma" or "I'm going to watch this movie and get triggered, I most likely will cry, I could break down." So be it... at the end of the day, it is most likely what your body needs, and is more likely telling you it needs it, but you are too busy fighting it constantly, too not succumb to healing, instead suppression, fighting your emotions, fighting your brain. If you followed the advice of this doctor above, then you may as well go bury your head in the sand and ignore life all together and remain in denial about your issues, because your never going to get better if you don't push yourself, and you don't face your fears and trauma head on. This doctor has really stepped outside his scope of reasoning IMHO, with little actual concept to what is best for those with PTSD vs. his medical viewpoint on what is best, based on theory of reading and theory from patients. He does not have PTSD, thus he cannot comprehend what is actually best for a PTSD mind at any given point. I would go as far to say, that I am definately 100% suggesting the opposite to what he is saying. Go see the movie and brace yourself... face your fears, prepare yourself mentally and face your trauma, relive the experience through the movie, because hell... we with PTSD do a good enough job already, so why not just add fuel to the fire, especially when that fuel is positive to help you heal??? Remember, it is just a movie, it isn't real, and that is part of the mental preparation, and ongoing self talk after watching it. You must relate what is real, what is not, what is facing your fears, what is not... or you can just bury your head in the sand, and you may as well rollover and die whilst your at it!!!
