  1. My husband returned in March and refuses to get any counseling. He’s edgy and angry and drinks too much.. is forgetful and stressed and tense. He’s a Reservist and this was his first deployment. He is normally a very kind, easy going person. I don’t know how to help him, but am starting to just avoid talking to him because EVERYTHING turns into an angry confrontation. My heart is breaking for him.

    1. To Military Wife: I was diagnosed with PTSD in 1996. I’ve been in therapy since then. I’ve tried everything including individual therapy as well as group, cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, electric shock and several more. EMDR has been helpful, but the most helpful therapy I’ve done is neurofeedback. After eight 50 minute sessions I’ve been able to reduce/eliminate my antidepressant/antianxiety meds, get control of intrusive thoughts and reduce my anxiety/irritability/anger greatly! Please share this with your husband.
