Never, Never Quit – PTSD by Sandra Beck, Military Mom Talk Radio

I am not a psychologist or a therapist. I have no medical training whatsoever. What I have done is talk to experts and read their books and reports regarding Post Traumatic Stress – whether you add the D as in Disorder or not – it sucks.  And PTDS sucks for the whole family – including friends and coworkers.

To the best of my understanding, what I see from the cheap seats is everyone I have talked to and their family members who have shared with me their experiences with deployment is that everyone who serves comes back different.  Is this because of a label like PTSD? Is this just a normal human reaction to the abnormal experience of War? Probably a little bit of both with some additional trauma thrown in.

I don’t know how we ever expected people to be the same coming back after a combat experience. We change after we go to college. We change after we find religion. We change every time we experience something new.  Some changes are for the better. Some changes are for the worse.

All I know is that what I hear on the air and off the air that when people come back they are different. Some differences are extreme and some are traumatic for everyone involved.  Some differences suffer in silence. I have also understood from many service members that they are different after every deployment. I guess I can sum it up in a few words- after every deployment everyone including the service member and their family and friends must adjust to a new normal.

PTSD/PTS is real and it’s here to stay.  The more we accept it as an expected I believe the faster we can get services to the people who really need it. I believe the faster we remove the stigma from this, the faster we can raise awareness, help those affected and move forward with what we all need.

I also learned from my experiences that PTSD/PTS is much like the word cancer. It covers just a huge spectrum of situations.  I have also heard about treatments that span the same spectrum. They are as wide and varied as the diagnosis itself. My advice from a completely un-medical perspective:

Do what works. Use your head but be open to new things – remember no one ever died from an open mind. Stop what doesn’t or makes it worse. You served our country. You are oue hero. You are valuable and we need you here. Keep trying until you figure out what you need to do to take care of yourself and never, never quit.

When the police find two more murder victims the next day, both killed with the same weapon that killed the victim whom West had discovered the day before, and the female victim has his name written on a notepad in her purse, their focus on West intensifies.

A Sheriff’s deputy, Lieutenant Michelle Prado befriends West, and the two work together in an effort to find the real murderer. As their relationship develops, West finds himself physically attracted to her, but does she feel the same way?

When the FBI moves in to help out, the pressure to solve the case mounts.  West and Lieutenant Prado discover the local murders may be connected to a larger, nationwide FBI investigation into organized crime and political corruption.

Shining Service Worldwide’s mission is to show appreciation and support to women currently serving in the military, military vets and military spouses. Too often our females in service fall through the cracks and don’t get the attention they deserve, or more importantly, they need.

Linda is visiting Military Mom Talk Radio this week to share new initiatives on the horizon for Shining Service Worldwide, specifically for transitioning women veterans.

She believes that life is a journey of personal evolution. Every day we have choice to ask powerful questions to overcome limiting beliefs to create the life we deserve. When a woman pursues her passion, she becomes ageless. Abundance flows into her life as creativity, happiness, relationships, optimal health, and financial freedom!

She has inspired women to feel good in their bodies with her own fitness program. She has facilitated seminars and retreats for women to renew, to re-energize, and to reward themselves for their uniqueness. Her articles on women’s wisdom have appeared in Healing Garden Journal and phenomeNEWS. Wise Women – Circle of Wisdom is her international selling inspirational gift book.

Suzy holds a Masters degree in Agency Counseling from Siena Heights University. Continual immersion in her own self-growth and evolution allows her to connect with others with authenticity and impeccability. Her studies have included shamanism, reiki, massage, enlightened warrior training, train the trainer, millionaire mind intensive, investment and business building, and 4T prosperity. Her motivation comes from her own life’s challenges and realization that all of our stories overlap.

Her personal intent is to empower women to own their magnificence, to ignite their dreams, and to illuminate their beauty, power, wisdom, and leadership in their Sizzzl years of 50+. There is powerful energy at a cellular level in women as we embrace our 60′s, 70′s, and 80′s. It is not a time to be invisible, but a time to be seen and heard. We are the change agents.

Valerie received her bachelor’s degree in biopsychology from Oberlin College in 2003 and her master’s of science in clinical psychology from Antioch University New England in 2010. She has worked with veteran and active duty military populations at the United States Coast Guard Academy, the Providence VA hospital, and is currently in training at the William S. Middleton Memorial Hospital (Madison, WI) in the Addictions Disorders Treatment Program, where she works with veterans with a dual diagnosis of PTSD and substance use disorders. Valerie is currently working on her dissertation entitled “The Questionnaire of Post-Combat Couple Adjustment – A Preliminary Validation.” Her research focuses on the experience of couples coping with post-deployment and post-combat adjustment issues.

Valerie is the daughter of a Navy veteran and former United Nations staffer. Because of her father’s work, Valerie grew up in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Italy. Her father traveled often throughout her childhood and her family experienced many of the challenges and joys associated with this kind of lifestyle. These early experiences have shaped Valerie’s interest in post-deployment adjustment issues and are the inspiration behind her current research interests.

During that time, I served a s everything from a karate and self-defense instructor (yes, I have a black belt and 2 brown belts!), a personal trainer, a couples/honeymoon/family cruise and vacation travel company owner. Throughout all of my life, one thing has tied everything together– my love of working with people, and doing what I could to help them achieve their goals. Karate, self-defense, personal training, even travel… all of those career paths prepared me for my eventual road in marriage and family therapy. Helping others. Making people happier than they were, more secure, more confident, more capable.”
