For folks that suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and yes, PTSD is real; it can be a living hell. A psychological nightmare that never ends and if you’ve ever met anyone suffering from this, you’d know just how serious it can get. When you do or if you have then you realize that until they are over this problem through therapy or the new Virtual Reality re-conditioning technologies, there can be no emotional freedom.
According to a recent RAND Report “there are over 1.7 million service members returning from the conflicts in Iran and Afghanistan that may be among those who face mental health problems.” That statistic alone is scary and the percentages of PTSD are much higher than you might think. Rehabilitation is expensive, but necessary, because someone with damaged psyche can hurt themselves and others around them, and even if they do not go off physically, they can hurt those around them mentally and emotionally.
The health and fitness of a returning soldier is crucial and their ability to adjust back does affect us all. Emotional Freedom techniques in this real require counseling, and that costs money. New virtual reality systems are very effective and yet they cost money too. Pre-conditioning too does wonders for our men and women in uniform, which are deployed into unnerving situations.
Those who have had their friends and comrades blown up or killed in front of them by a random roadside bomb tend to be the worst off. Feeling helpless, and having survivor guilt, and so when they come back, adjusting into the world of yuppies, lattes, and la la land, surrounded by folks who just don’t understand. See the problem?
