    It's very nice of you guys to offer this to the troops! A good friend of mine is currently serving in Afghanistan, I'm going to send him a link the next time I write to him.

    I am very grateful for this site. I have PTSD and am NOT a vet. My husband also has PTSD is a 100% service-connected disabled combat vet.

    I salute and thank all vets who have freely served our country.

    I just thought it to be post-worthy to say not all PTSD Dxs are vets. I have posted recently outside this "group".

      I too suffer from PTSD and am not a vet. I am hoping to find some help here. I can't find doctors that are affordable, I don't have insurance. I am getting ready to get disability however, my brother has disability for back injuries and his medical expenses are outrageous. I did another online therapy site and wasted $100 and it was just another 30 days of not knowing what to do.

    Is there any help for those of us with PTSD that stems from traumas not related to the service? It's been impossible for me to get help it seems because I'm not a veteran.

    It's not only troops who suffer from PTSD. I hope you guys counsel others who suffer from PTSD due to trauma.
