If you are interested in the letters 'PTSD,' and you have done some research, I bet you have not noticed an elaborate SHELL GAME in play? Let us see what the Mayo Clinic has to say about the phrase "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" ?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - Mayo Clinic www.mayoclinic.org/.../post-traumatic-stress-disorder/.../con... Mayo Clinic Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event
Well, the Mayo clinic is correct, partially. But only Partially... and this is a crucial point that is generally unknown. And the fact is that this "unknown" is unknown... and being unknown, it is not seen as that which is causing so many Veterans to commit suicide. Now... is the reader "interested" enough in the unknown aspects of PTSD to read about the unknown... or not?
Only a fool would seek to repair an expensive watch, and would seek PROFESSIONAL help, right? And yet, in the medical field, and in BS&bp [modern mental health] the denial of the MIND has been so effective over the last century, that people who have absolutely no idea what the MIND is... imagine themselves COMPETENT enough to deal with that of which they are quite ignorant.
_________________The non-counscious fear [hidden Within the MIND of the normal person is quite unknown to him or her -- until some deeply repressed traumatic memory held Within that person's MIND gets activated [by some intense external event]. And in response to this event [and the event may be cumulative] the person's MIND then begins to PROTECT that person from such an event occurring again. And the behavior, thoughts, and reasoning of the Veteran said to be suffering from PTSD... is simply a person whose MIND has been thus stimulated. And all the thoughts and behaviors are merely natural means by which his or her MIND is protecting him/her from being exposed to that event again.
And to imagine that this PROTECTIVE process would be nice and orderly, or even rational, is silly, except to those ignorant of the MIND and how it works.
_________________ And if you don't trust yourself with this question, then ask any mental health professional this question. See how many can answer this simple question?
Now... if the CAUSE of PTSD lies in the MIND [and it does] and modern mental health [for the most part] has no idea what the MIND is, how will Veterans be properly helped?
I applaud and encourage as many people who can help make life a bit easier for Veterans, to by all means do so. The men and women who serve America deserve the best treatment they can receive, period.
My concern is with the mental help the Veteran needs and deserves. The Veteran is placed in "harms way," and to understand what this means is not something most people will ever likely experience. And so, the Veteran needs SPECIAL help that very few human beings can provide. The help the Veteran experiencing PTSD needs... is not physical. It is MENTAL, which means MIND. And how many in America have studied the MIND for ten or more years? SINCE the MIND can ONLY be studied from Within the MIND itself...via Intuition, in other words.
This is enough for people to know… if people will begin to act upon this information. Demand that COMPETENT HELP BE GIVEN TO VETS!!
