Conduct Unbecoming, IS HERE (Barnes and Noble) and on Amazon! It is a book for military sexual trauma survivors written by a survivor. This book goes in depth about Post traumatic stress caused by MST, and will be helpful for veterans suffering from other traumas as well. It goes into detail about the differences between PTSS and PTSD and the stages of recovery. YES!
Something you won't read elsewhere! A self-help book on stages of recovery from PTSD!
My other website goes into detail about MST, but I will briefly cover some of the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. here.You have experienced a trauma or traumas outside the range of NORMAL HUMAN EXPERIENCE THAT WOULD BE MARKEDLY DISTRESSING TO ALMOST ANYONE
ie serious threat to your life or fear for your life, serious threat of harm to your loved ones or friend's, seeing someone who is being or has been seriously injured or killed as the result of war, accident, or physical violence.Witnessing gore on the battlefield or being subjected to battlefield violence. Rape, torture! (wounds,ieds,etc)
A touch on the arm or bad joke doesn't qualify here! If the above didn't happen; no PTSD or MST.Certainly rape, war, witnessing death and gore.
2)Next You also have to re-experience the trauma in some way,
ie recurrent or distressing recalling of the event, nightmares of it,
a sense you are reliving it at times,(we call these flashbacks in the most terrible form), these can even occur when you are wide awake.
3-8) You must also have at least 5 of several other symptoms that come from a group that I go into detail in my book.
There is a large chapter in my book on PTSS and PTSD caused by military trauma, rape, etc.
I use examples from my own life and try to take the psychobabble out so it is easy to understand.
you may find more about MST on my website http://www.Diane-and-Friends.com/ or purchase my book there.
Please spread the word and help get the word out by purchasing the book. For years I have maintained these
websites with no donations. THIS SITE WILL BE CLOSING DUE TO LACK OF SUPPORT FROM VETERANS UNFORTUNATELY
I go into these eight symptoms in detail in my book.
