As many people do these days, especially writers, I recently ‘googled’ myself to see what appears under my name. I found two Guest Opinion articles I wrote for the Tucson Citizen in 2004 and again in 2005. Eight years later I am still connecting with people about PTSD and my book Accepting the Ashes- A Daughter’s Look at PTSD. Unfortunately, Post Traumatic Stress from military service is not less common than it was eight years ago. As a nation, we need PTS support now, more than ever.
Returning Service members and family members, please do not delay in asking for assistance with very real wounds caused by the truama of war.
Here is a link to the two articles I wrote while OIF was in full swing. The location has changed, but not the result. Both articles are here- http://tucsoncitizen.com/morgue2/tag/quynn-elizabeth/
