I have just watched a piece on George Stromboulopoulos with an interview with Paul Franklin, retired member of the military who lost his legs due to an explosion while serving in Afghanistan. He spoke of the issues regarding veterans and post traumatic stress disorder, which is great but he also spoke of his ex-wife whom he said has secondary post traumatic stress disorder as a result of what they went through!! Though this must be a terrible situation, it was good to hear the use of the term and the effect of the trauma on the families. I am going to be speaking to military families next month and I will make sure they know of this video and maybe this will help validate what many of them are going through. It is good to hear the discussion about SPTSD and families. It is real everyone, and not just for those with family members in the military. Think of the family members of paramedics, police, fire, victim assistance workers, and other support services who are the first responders.
