The parents of a friend of mine were caught in a religious bombing in the Middle East, they were nearly killed and they lost close friends. Their mother is living with them now she can’t go home to the coast because she is afraid “they” are still after her. PTSD is not one of the illnesses one expects parents to suffer from in their golden years – . It really has this family in a bind – knowing what to do how to help her. I believe it will help them all - bring them closer – PTSD works with the past to form the present, in order to work through it a sufferer has to include loved ones in the process – it can make families closer if they have faith. I really believe this family has that faith.
