When Christal Presley's father was eighteen, he was drafted to Vietnam. Like many men of that era who returned her childhood locked in his room, gravitating between the deepest depression and unspeakable rage, unable to participate in holidays or birthdays. At a very young age, Christal learned to walk on eggshells, doing anything and everything not to provoke him, but this dance caused her to become a profoundly disturbed little girl. She acted out at school, engaged in self-mutilation, and couldn't make friends. At the age of eighteen, Christal left home and didn't look back. She barely spoke to her father for the next thirteen years.To any outsider, Christal appeared to be doing well: she earned a BA and a master's, got married, and traveled to India. But despite all these accomplishments, Christal still hadn't faced her biggest challenge—her relationship with her father. In 2009, something changed. Christal decided it was time to begin the healing process, and she extended an olive branch. She came up with what she called "The Thirty Day Project," a month's worth of conversations during which she would finally ask her father difficult questions about Vietnam. Thirty Days with My Father: Finding Peace from Wartime PTSD (HCI) is a gritty yet heartwarming story of those thirty days of a daughter and father reconnecting in a way that will inspire us all to seek the truth, even from life's most difficult relationships. This beautifully realized memoir shares how one woman and her father discovered profound lessons about their own strength and will to survive, shedding an inspiring light on generational PTSD. Just released, it is already number one on Amazon’s list of best-sellers.
This is the basis of what the trial was all about the most enraging thing about the entire trial was not about Mr. Routh, Mr. Kyle or Mr. Littlefield, it was all about those experts called by the competing entities in the courtroom, their reputations and PTSD. Mr. Routh may have been the human on trial but it was PTSD that was being tested in this courtroom and nothing more than that. You see each of those called were only called because they would say whatever the ones paying them wanted them to say. They were never there to give society a clearer understanding of PTSD nor even a slight suggestion on how it should be dealt with or some keys to diagnosing it. It was all about them, their thoughts, opinions and beliefs. PTSD does not conform to anyone’s thoughts or ideas, it is shaped simply by the suffer and can present in all types of ways. Because of this, no one who has or is suffering from PTSD can give you a detailed analysis of this condition. All they can do is tell you what it is they are seeing and even though it may fall under one category or another; it does not mean that one size fits all.
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.

“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!

Welcome to The Gospel of Truth: Injecting Liberty and Freedom into the minds of man.
After being out for a few weeks it feels good to get back to the mission of Liberty and Freedom.
On this weeks show we bring up the questions of:
Why do we go to war?
Who profits from war?
"Let us not forget the bankers who financed the great war. If anyone had the cream of the profits it was the bankers." - Major General Smedley Butler (MC)
If we take a look at all major wars we see that banking institutions always end up with major profits.
War is the most efficient debt-creation machine. For starters, wars are very expensive. War is good for banks because a lot of material, equipment, buildings and infrastructure get destroyed in war. So countries go into massive debt to finance war, and then borrow a ton more to rebuild.
Are banks playing both sides of the field?
Would American corporations sell goods and services to the enemy during wartime?
Join us as we analyze what a gentelmen by the name of Michael Rivero put together... All Wars Are Banker Wars.
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.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that often develops as the result of experiencing traumatic events, such as sexual assault, warfare, serious injury, or threats of imminent death. Disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyper-arousal are some of its associated symptoms.
Join Dr. Sadigh and his special guest, Durdane Aghayeva, and explore an incredible story of survival amid traumatic suffering. Durdane was only 20 years of age when she was injured and captured while trying to escape the most atrocious massacre in recent Azerbaijani history, the Khojaly massacre, in 1992. She has spent many years developing the courage and healing necessary to share her story. Hear firsthand what she has experienced and what has made it possible for her to survive such intense trauma.
Another dimension of Durdane’s unique story is the connection between the Jewish and Azerbaijani communities. Some people have never heard of Azerbaijan; a unique Muslim country that celebrates thousands of years of positive and respectful co-existence with Jewish residents, and 20 years of diplomacy with Israel. Azerbaijani people, like Jews and some other ethnicities, have experienced horrible tragedies. Emily Pflaster, a visionary leader who is building connection between the Jewish and Azerbaijani communities, joins Durdane in creating an enormous potential for peace, friendship and healing.
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.
Rick spent 8 ½ years in the Marine Corps, however, he was medically separated in June 2011. During his time on active duty, he completed 2 combat tours to Iraq, was a helicopter mechanic, aerial gunner, and instructor. He suffered silently with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for just over 7 years and was just about as close as one could be to ending their life before his amazing wife was somehow able to pull him out of the darkest of places.
Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver as he interviews Rick & Tonya Shaw, Wednesday, 4/22/15 at noon, PDT). Tonya acted as a caregiver to her PTSD husband for years, trying to save her family, and her marriage that was destined for divorce. However, her goal was not going to be an easy one..
Rick began self-medicating with alcohol mixed with prescribed medication just to get a couple hours of sleep at night. However, the onset of sleepwalking and nightmares became a nightly occurrence. Shortly after, he began to wake up with flashbacks and was convinced that their house was under attack. He then began waking up, pacing in his home with a pistol. His wife would follow him around to make sure he did not hurt anyone. Rick began isolating himself, and his behavior now adversely affected his job.
Eventually, Tonya was able to get Rick to open up publicly about how PTSD had not only affected him, but also his wife and everyone around him. The suicide rate for veterans is staggering and almost impossible to fathom. In fact, veterans make up 20% of the suicides in the United States, but only make up 10% of the population. In whole numbers, last year, just under 40,000 people committed suicide in the U.S. Of that, just over 8,000 were veterans.
Rick and Tonya have now devoted their lives to PTSD awareness of this misunderstood disorder. Please share this link with anyone who is suffering with PTSD. This is a "must see" show!
