22 U.S. Veterans Die from Suicide Every Day in the U.S.A. EVERY DAY!

The Real Facts on PTSD.

www.darwinsrightleftwing.com
PTSD is real. It has been likened to changes in the brain similar to epilepsy.

We all get asked “are you okay?” by loved ones or friends, and we give stock answers like “I’m fine” and “Don’t worry about me, I’m good.” Are these answers truthful? For some people they are. Other people…not so much. It’s just a self-defense mechanism that has been learned from a lack of an emotionally supportive childhood. Childhood trauma is the majority of adult cases of PTSD.

Adults that were abused as children often have feelings of worthlessness, low self-esteem and long periods of depression. Often these fellow human-beings are prescribed medications that become a necessity, because quitting them leaves you with terrible withdrawal symptoms, which are worse than being on the medication. These “medicines” leave you apathetic with an empty feeling deep inside of you, that seems as though it will never be filled with anything, but sadness, rage, hopelessness and a poor image of self.

Many people abused as children, suffer many medical conditions during adulthood. Many contemplate and even plan suicide, often, if not a good part of the day. Abused Adult Children (AAC) are NOT more likely to abuse their own children, that is just a cruel theory invented by some dipshit with a fancy degree hanging on his wall.

The truth you ask? Well, it is individual and different for everyone. Some people NEVER recover from the abuse. I know that AACs are more likely to have pain, especially in the gastrointestinal and pelvic areas. I know these individuals are prone to isolation and a total lack of self-esteem. Many times these individuals feel it is always their fault, no matter the situation. These adults, abused as children, always make apologies for their actions. Many have issues with intimacy and even sexual dysfunction over the abuse.

Men, especially, don’t usually tell about their abuse as a child, especially if it was sexual abuse. Men in the American culture always have been taught to be stoic…seldom do they speak of past abuse or they simply have blacked it out. Men feel it is something that shouldn’t be spoken of, or any emotion given to it… after all, that might be considered weakness, and in America, men shouldn’t be weak, right?

PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is very common in this classification of person. PTSD results in anxiety, panic attacks and long bouts of depression. Many give up trying to speak of it because it would indicate weakness in their eyes. PTSD is a sad condition. The hyper-startle response or lack of any startle response. PTSD sufferers may have flashbacks, obsessive thoughts and violent nightmares. These nightmares may include pieces of the abuse that occurred as a child. 22 veterans commit suicide EVERY day in America. Think about it, that’s almost 1 veteran, every hour, every day, every year!

If you feel you have depression, please seek medical help. If you feel you suffer from PTSD from past traumatic experiences, please seek help.

There is a natural medication that has been shown to effectively treat PTSD, Depression and Anxiety. If you want more information on this, click HERE.

I am not selling anything or giving medical advice. I am a registered nurse and a veteran of Desert Storm, having served 8 years and honorably discharged. I know of a natural medicine that is so more effective at treating PTSD, anxiety and depression but the federal government and many states make it a crime to pursue a life of happiness. Please support all with PTSD, including our war heroes and sign my petition for the compassionate use of medicinal cannabis in treating these disorders. Just click the button below.

Full Metal Jacket Helmet: Peace Be With You!
Full Metal Jacket Helmet:

Peace and a machine-gun! That is American…the “duality of man” as Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Movie “Full Metal Jacket” implies, rather napalm-like! In your face and real, the first segment is unbelievably realistic to any of us old time Marine Corps Veterans! Stanley Kubrick NAILED IT in the boot camp portion!

The movie is about a pragmatic U.S. Marine that observes the dehumanizing effects the U.S.-Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal Marine Corps Boot Camp Training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.

This movie is a two-segmented look at the effect of the military mindset and war itself on Vietnam-Era-MARINES.

Vincent Philip D’Onofrio (born June 30, 1959) is an American actor, director, film producer, writer, and singer.  An accomplished character actor, he has been referred to as “The Human Chameleon” and is often referred to as an actor’s actor. He is known for his roles as Private Leonard Lawrence (“Gomer Pyle“) in the war film Full Metal Jacket, “Edgar” in Men in Black and Detective Robert Goren in the crime TV series Law & Order: Criminal IntentArticle from HeRe.

Ronald Lee Ermey (born March 24, 1944) is an American actor, best known for his role as the austere Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He is a retired U.S. Marine and an honorary Gunnery Sergeant; during his tenure in the U.S. Marine Corps, he served as a drill instructor. This is why Full Metal Jacket is so historically correct on the Boot Camp segment…because that IS what Marine Boot Camp is really like!

Ermey has often been typecast for the roles of authority figures, such as Mayor Tilman in the film Mississippi BurningBill Bowerman in Prefontaine,Sheriff Hoyt in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, Jimmy Lee Farnsworth in Fletch Lives, Police Captain in Sevenplastic army men leaderSarge in the Toy Story films, and the Warden in SpongeBob SquarePants.

He has hosted two programs on the History ChannelMail Call, in which he answered viewers’ questions about various militaria both modern and historic; and Lock N’ Load with R. Lee Ermey, which focused on the development of different types of weapons. More info on R. Lee Ermey HeRe!

Screech….”Get the F#ck on my beloved Marine Corps Footsteps maggots!” Soon after fresh recruits here this phrase, in the middle of the night, recruits get their first Marine Corps Haircut! If you have any moles, they take them right off for ya! Ouch! I enjoyed watching the idiots with “mullets” and “rat-tails” the most, hey, what can I say, it was the early 1990s! Some of them actually cried! They learned quick not to cry after that!

Joker almost met his maker before he even went to Vietnam! Marine Corps Boot Camp lasts 3.5 months. The longest Boot Camp of all services. The Army is 2 months.

After Marines got out of Boot Camp, during my time, we went to another 4+ weeks of Marine Combat Training. Every Marine is a basic rifleman first! The Marine Corps is the smallest, most elite fighting force in the world! That’s why Marines have always been despised by the Army. Basic Rifleman Marines are more elite than the Army Airbourne and all other Army special forces. This is simple fact.

The Marine Corps is the only branch in the United States that CAN be sent to battle WITHOUT AN ACT OF CONGRESS! That’s because Marines are all Killers. That is what Marines do. This is why you don’t see fat Marines. If you drive onto any Army base, you will see fat Army personel. Marines are held to much higher standards, in every facet of the Marines training and lives! Discipline is the key to any Marine and every Marine has Discipline. Individuals that aren’t disciplined, are not allowed in our beloved Corps!
