    PTSD may be a real condition or not. Psychiatrists and doctors make up medical conditions all the time. What PTSD has become is a very convenient excuse to be abusive and say it's not the fault of the abuser. It's the guy who wants to take his dog into the restaurant for a 20 minute breakfast and has to be accommodated. It's the one who beats his wife and blames PTSD. It's become the excuse dejour.

    Combat Fatigue - as PTSD has been known for centuries! - is a very real and recognized malady which millions have suffered - from ALL nations.

    Anyone, military or civilian, who has been through a seriously traumatic situation is prone to suffer it as it is recognized as a HEALTHY coping mechanism. Some make it through with little or no medical intervention while others need constant support and assistance.

    There are many factors that cause the latter group to suffer more - probably the biggest is the lack of a support factor - not only in the present but the past. Those from single parent homes seem to suffer more than thos with a good family background.

    Been there and done that!:cool:

    They needed a study to show that X makes you forget your problems?

    Not a bad idea, though. Some risk, some side effects, but nothing worse than Prozac or Valium.

    In study, ecstasy shows promise for treating PTSD
    May 6, 2014 A small but important study that has shown remarkable results using a combination of the drug MDMA - known on the street as ecstasy or "Molly" - and conventional therapy to treat post-traumatic stress disorder could be of significant value to thousands of veterans in Texas.
