[LMB] Madness

Two things about PTSD.
It is usually considered in concert with combat but that is not necessary. The people who fly drones from Nevada have been affected, also, police and firefighters.
The second is that although PTSD is the newest name, I suspect that all of the wars and high stress jobs have been included back to the beginning of history. It may explain some of the less than optimal actions of leaders after a war.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

One of the best ways and the oldest way to deal with PTSD has always been
group therapy with people who shared the same experience. Several of these
group therapies popped up after the Vietnam war.
One aspect of PTSD related to war, was the long term effects of undiagnosed
brain damage due to concussions from explosives during combat. There are
some similarities related to football players who have shown PTSD type
effects from a career of the game.
