Individuals with PTSD are at increased risk for depression, physical injuries, substance abuse, and sleep problems, which in turn can affect thoughts and actions. These risk factors also occur with brain injury.

It is becoming recognised that PTSD can be caused by abuse in non-extreme contexts. For example, Dr Thormod Idsoe of the University of Stavanger, Norway found symptoms of PTSD among 88% of a group of teenager school students who said they were victims of bullying. As Idsoe says in a report. 'Traumatic experiences or strains imposed on us by others can often hurt more than accidents.' Indeed, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry have issued a policy statement recognising bullying as a serious medical and public health issue.
Beyond Capitol Hill, however, Cornum says her decades in the Army taught her that any policy change will come slowly, citing "don't ask, don't tell," the longstanding, now-repealed ban on openly gay service members.

TBI: When the areas of the brain that control emotions are damaged, the survivor of a TBI may have what is called “emotional lability.” This means that emotions are unpredictable and swing from one extreme to the other.

Since the Second World War British troops have seen active service in Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Bosnia, two Gulf wars and, most recently, in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. In coming years, many more veterans will present with symptoms of PTSD. Without a profound change in culture around the treatment of the condition, family lives will continue to suffer.
In the past I used to react to insults with violence, I suppose that could be narcissistic rage, but nowadays it equates to me cutting that person out of my life and telling them why their behavior is hurtful. Do I have to tell them about themselves? That is debatable, but either way I feel it is better to cut them off and leave them with something to think about. Does that still make me a narcissist?
"You're keeping women from rising from the ranks," Duckworth says. "You need to have some real combat under your belt. You want them to have a shot, just like you would want anyone to have a shot."
