this is brilliant. I've spoken with various veterans I've known, and I reckon this is a serious breakthrough in the problem of trauma and PTSD. As I understand it, everyone comes out of conflict changed, and coping mechanisms of the human mind need help, especially with such brutal enemies. Even my paternal grandfather, who was a consciencious objector and volunteered to serve on minesweepers rather than take life found some of what he saw in the war at sea sufficiently harrowing to stop in the middle of a funny story and gaze into the distance with that thousand-yard stare. They picked up a few survivors from ships that had struck mines or had been torpedoed.

I've studied CPTSD and PTSD, that being said, people that suffer with CPTSD, are people that have experienced more than one Trauma for a period of a year or longer or soldiers that have been in battle field environments for a period of a year or longer...CPTSD is known as an invisible hurricane of Trauma which you have no control over, unless your around someone that's wise or someone than has experienced CPTSD themselves, what the Ukrainian government is proof how much they value their soldiers...beautiful 🫡
