I am happy to hear that Anne Freund's wonderful book, Taming the Fire Within, is now available for free downloading at
This book has the right attitude about PTSD as a normal reaction to abnormal situations. It also clearly explains symptoms and common reactions to war experiences in plain old everyday English instead of the psychological jargon which usually makes people with PTSD feel like there is something wrong with them.
I hope most of you know, I think PTSD proves there is something right with you. Number one, it is proof of survival. Dead people don't get PTSD. Number two, it proves you give a shit. If you're numb, that proves it more, because you would not have to get numb to survive if you didn't give a shit.

  1. I am grateful that Mrs. Mason gives a shit. It is real difficult work,.............the working at not being a numb sob.
