Chances are that if your loved one has seen war, he or she has PTSD at some level, and you who love your vet will also be deeply and profoundly affected. "LOVE OUR VETS" answers over 60 heartfelt questions, providing down to earth wisdom and much needed tips for self-care. Sharing as a counselor and from her personal experience of living with a 100 percent disabled veteran with PTSD, Welby O’Brien gives hope, encouragement and practical help for families and loved ones who are caught in the wake of the trauma. This book addresses a broad spectrum of issues and concerns, and offers realistic wisdom from a wide variety of individuals who share from real hearts and lives.
Welcomed by NAMI, VA and other counselors, this is not just another book about PTSD – rather it is a tremendous resource for families and loved ones who struggle along with their vets in the daily challenges of PTSD.
