When it comes to our service men and women we can never truly thank them enough. They put their lives on hold, not to mention at risk, to go and train and fight for our country so we can continue living the way we are living today. We owe it all to them.
Nowadays we have all heard about PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but I don’t think we can fully understand what it is like to actually be suffering from it. Simply put, unless you were actually there to witness what many of our soldiers witness you just can’t imagine what horrors they’ve seen. Because of those graphic images they are haunted, day and night, and I don’t think any of us can blame them.
These traumatic thoughts and images stay with people who have PTSD and it can make it very difficult for them to continue on with everyday living. Until very recently this was a condition that had very few coping mechanisms, none that were very successful, and PTSD sufferers were forced to just live with the condition, until now.
The new form of therapy for veterans who suffer from PTSD is dog therapy. They have a dog who is trained to help them cope with their PTSD and to help ease their discomfort in a stressful situation. The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation is a video that shows just how wonderful these therapy dogs are and how successful this method is to veterans who are suffering from PTSD.
