Stoners Couch (6) PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)


Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a condition of persistent mental and emotional stress occurring as a result of injury or severe psychological shock, typically involving disturbance of sleep and constant vivid recall of the experience, with dulled responses to others and to the outside world. War Veterans and first responders dealing with traumatic events first hand is at a greater risk of developing  PTSD. This is not being widely spoken about during the recruitment process, the focus is only on the material benefits and perks. if you want the truth,  PTSD is a  potential job-related risk  For anyone who chooses to work in a dangerous or life-saving field of work. You will be exposed to the intricate balance of life and death playing out in real time, in the real world away from the movies and T.V. shows that enjoy glamourizing traumatic events for the sake of entertainment. Experiencing it first hand is a life-changing event and if your mind and spirit are not ready for the real thing it can present long-lasting problems for you or others around you.  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can affect many people from different walks of life who have been through traumatic events.


Warfare is not restricted to being manifested on some distant battlefield. Many events are taking place right outside your cozy and safe homes. All manners of devilish behaviors are being played out in and outside the urban ghettos of America the badlands, where things such as belittling mistreatment unjust shootings, killings, rapings, along with mental, physical, and spiritual enslavement exist on a global scale. All the weapons of mass destruction in the world cannot protect your mind or spirit from the pollution of being fragmented or made unwhole detached from your true self. Turned into something else because of a traumatic event that took place in your life that rocked you to your very core. Mentally and spiritually the road to recovery is not an easy one it’s filled with looking at the cold hard truth straight in the eye. In order to deal with the healing process, you must first accept the truth without lying to yourself. Next, you have to come to terms with the life-changing event that caused the PTSD.   If you have regrets because you feel you did something wrong learn from it and seek to balance that out by doing what is right make sure you repent for your actions then create new actions that will help and enhances life. For myself, cannabis has been an invaluable natural resource that has been a tremendous aid in the road to recovery. I used it as a healing aid to help my mental focus on what’s important to me in life mental, physical and spiritual happiness. Being free of emotional and mental roadblocks that cripple the road to recovery. Controlling what my mind is thinking is very important dwelling on the positive side of life and only thinking of the negative side of life to learn lessons and problem solve. The hard part is changing over your thinking without dwelling on the negative too long. My first-hand experience comes from my own battle of dealing with baggage that was attached to me during the second gulf war in 2003 with the invasion of Iraq by a United States-led coalition that overthrew the government of Saddam Hussein. No matter what you may have gone through if you still got the breath of life in your lungs you can make the necessary adjustments to put the pieces of your mind and spirit back together again. Just make the right choice and follow through until you are living a fuller life with more joy and happiness you must find a way to cut out the hurt and pain by letting it go in order to truly live again. Do it for yourself your friends and family. If you have no friends and family do it for you love yourself enough to make the first step then keep walking until you have traveled to that special place that will lead you to become whole again.
