    Loving Someone with PTSD

    in Relationships

    I was recently asked, can someone with PTSD love; can they be in a relationship? The answer is yes!


    When someone you love is distant, anxious, or angry all the time, your relationship can suffer, it's hard not to take the symptoms of PTSD personally. Know that the love is there, but it is buried deep under layers of pain, fear, and anxiety. 


    Join us as we discuss 5 tips for understanding someone with PTSD so that friends and family can be more supportive and less upset when dealing with PTSD survivors.

    PTSD & Traumatic Grief: Mourning to Heal

    in Psychology

    Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and grief go hand in hand: Trauma brings loss of the self, people, things, experiences, opportunities and life. Recovery, however, rarely discusses the deep need to grieve and the even more important process of mourning. Dr. Alan Wolfelt joins host Michele Rosenthal to discuss reframing PTSD as traumatic grief, plus what it takes to heal the wound.

    PTSD and Eating Disorders: Treatment and Healing

    in Health

    Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is driven by two major needs: 1) to feel safe, 2) to be in control. While survivors seek ways to manage their experience of the world they often find that controlling themselves offers immediate sensations of relief. It's no surprise that eating -- an essential survival behavior -- can lead to distorted coping mechanisms in the PTSD lifestyle.


    PTSD has proven to be a main predictor in eating disorders. In fact, 66% of all eating disorder patients have trauma in their history. Today, in honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness week Lauren Lohse (Navigator Program Manager) and Lauren Smolar (Helpline Manager) of National Eating Disorders Association join the show to discuss eating disorder symptoms, plus how to heal.

    Prisoners in Prison + POW's/US Soldiers= PTSD

    in Self Help

    “MOTHER HORRIFIED AFTER JAILED SON PICTURED WITH SWOLLEN EYE AND ROPE AROUND HIS NECK”http://blacklikemoi.com/2015/03/mother-horrified-after-jailed-son-pictured-with-swollen-eye-and-rope-around-his-neck/


    Since the last week of March, social media continues to blow up commenting on this story. So much so, we wanted to hear your comments live on “talk back Tuesday’s.” Unfortunately too many mothers have cried over their sons being incarcerated, but how many of us focus on the safety of prison life? It may be more American to focus on the conditions of our loved ones who go off to war. Nevertheless, both present with more similarities than differences, when they return to civil society. Both prisoners and soldiers live in war zones that require them be in survive or die mode. Living at code red for a significant amount of time and then returning to civil society without any real transition comes down to trained assassins living in communities that do not recognize them. We only assume and make judgments about where they’ve been, and demand that they just fall in line with the rest of us. With social media giving us a glimpse of prison reality and our war hero’s returning home physically but function like they are still in level 5, means that we have to get real about PTSD and other mental dysfunctions brought on by extreme life experiences. Lets Talk!

    SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING: TEN CITIES FOR BLACK OWNED BUSINESS & BLACK WOMEN PTSD

    in Spirituality

    Columbus, Georgia - with over a third of businesses being black-owned, this vibrant community is home to the aerospace industry, automotive manufacturing, defense, technology and tourism and has an active uptown area full of great restaurants, shops and other small businesses.


    PTSD is a mental disorder, and among the black community, there is a stronger reluctance to seek help for any mental illness. Black women, in particular, are viewed as strong with the ability to overcome traumatic events. An article recently published in Essence Magazine also showed that treating people of color in low-income communities for PTSD is just not a high priority.
