Wellness Wednesday: Focus on Veterans and PTSD

Supporting veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

theresahoThis Wellness Wednesday we celebrate Veteran’s Day, the day we remember the brave men and women who have served in the armed services of the U.S. in conflicts around the world. In honor of our heroic veterans, today we focus some attention on one of the major challenges facing our friends and loved ones who are veterans upon their return from military action: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, and its effect on veterans and their relationships with those who love and care for them. If you or a loved one suffer from PTSD, the following information may be helpful to you.

A number of studies have found that Veterans’ PTSD symptoms can negatively impact family relationships and that family relationships may exacerbate or ameliorate a veteran’s PTSD and related conditions. This synopsis provides information about the common problems experienced in relationships in which one (or both) of the partners has PTSD. It also provides recommendations for how one can cope with these difficulties. The majority of this research involved female partners (typically wives) of male Veterans; however, there is much clinical and anecdotal evidence to suggest that these problems also exist for couples where the identified PTSD patient is female.
