PTSD – a Spouse’s Perspective, by Erica David

_80_140_Book.766.coverThis really is a much needed book. For each returning vet suffering from PTSD there are family and friends of that vet who need to better understand what is going on.

The author, who is not only the spouse of a vet with PTSD, but also one who suffers with PTSD from her own earlier trauma, presents her experiences and her research in this book. It is important to remember that research continues in the field of post trauma stress. Erica Davis presents what she has found to be useful in both understanding and in needed skills for those married to a spouse with PTSD.

Davis gives a brief overview of what is known about this disorder and what treatment options are available. Most importantly, becoming aware of how a spouse suffering with PTSD may influence you, the spouse, is essential. The author lived for years without understanding what was going on with her husband and subsequently with herself.

Are you married to a vet, are yourself a vet, and/or have you or someone you live with been through a traumatic experience other than at war? If so, don’t miss this opportunity to educate yourself on this topic. What you will learn may save your relationship, your sanity, and possibly even your life.
