I have multiple close family members who served for years in the military plus nearly all of them struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder.
It’s heartsplitting because they all had pressing roles plus duties while they were in active service, however yet the VA did little for them once they were out.
People respond to plus deal with PTSD in different ways. Some people get immediate relief from pharmaceutical medications like antipsychotics, benzodiazepines, plus antidepressants. Others have persistent problems plus don’t respond well to traditional drug treatment. Therapy also has varying success rates among former military members, plus the type of therapy plus the skill of the therapist are core to having a option at success. I have seen this effect in my family, as 1 of them is doing well, others are struggling, plus 1 is on the brink of inpatient hospitalization. I wish I could do more, however it’s possible I might have sparked a fire when I showed my cousin cannabis when he visited my home last year. No matter how much I care about the plant, I didn’t want to pressure him into trying it. When he asked, I showed him different strains that he could choose from for his first time. He let me option plus I gave him granddaddy orange, a popular mellow indica strain. It gave him so much relief that I gave to send him home with a small baggie of flower buds plus a self-explanatory glass pipe that he could smoke it from. Now he’s a biweekly user plus doing better than ever with his PTSD symptoms; He’s also encouraging our other family members to deliver it a shot.
