PTSD Ain't Easy

PTSD never goes away...
veterans can learn
how to live with it.
Recovery is a long process...
Many veterans still
have a lot of problems.
It’s a day-to-day thing...
some have to be heavily medicated.
Frustrated and tired of dealing with it,
some vets consider suicide,
it’s a really bad place.
The more one isolates
the more likely PTSD,
Treatment gives tools to help.
But recognizing when the mind
reaches a danger zone
and when to pick up
available coping tools
is up to the individual.
Like everything else,
it takes practice and discipline,
You’ve got to motivate yourself
to pick up the tools.
It’s really hard.
