PTSD SUCKS

THE STORY:

My father served in Vietnam, he suffers from PTSD. When I was young my dad never went with us to the fireworks on the 4th of July. The explosions take him back to a place that strikes fear and panic in him. He cannot use the ceiling fan in his bedroom... he says looking up at the blades spinning is like watch the chopper blades spin over head. He can hear them, smell them, and its instant fear. He has suffered from night terrors that wake my mother up because he's reliving an experience in his sleep. It's like sleep walking or invasion of the body snatchers when this happens, but scary. Just ask my mom. My grandfather (my dads father) served in WWII. His plane was shot down and he was a POW in a prison camp in Germany. He didn't like to talk about his experiences as you can imagine. Thankfully my grandpa was freed but he watched many of his friends die in that camp. I have friends that suffered from PTSD to the point where they could no longer deal the mental and or physical pain they were in. Taking their own life was they only way they knew to stop the pain. 22 veterans a day take their own lives. That's 22 too many. These are just a few reasons I ask you to help raise money for The Wounded Warrior Project. Any amount is appreciated and helpful!! Please donate if you can, what you can, or join the team!!!
