We sadly lost our dad on the 26/11/16, he was a veteran who served in the army for 22 years. Dad has suffered with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for over 20 years and his life has been effected greatly by this.
People who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, and feeling emotionally numb. These symptoms can significantly impair a person's daily life.
PTSD is marked by clear physical and psychological symptoms. It often has symptoms like depression, substance abuse, problems of memory and cognition, and other physical and mental health problems. The disorder is also associated with difficulties in social or family life, including occupational instability, marital problems, family discord, and difficulties in parenting.
We are starting this fund raiser to help other veterans who find themselves in the same situation as my dad was.
