Flippy

Not for the kiddies!!

OK, its funny because its so violent and its a cartoon. This character “Flippy” is an ongoing joke on this series…a post traumatic vet who flips and becomes a blood thirsty killing machine.

PTSD is no joke. I am lucky to have not come across anything that seriously messed with my marbles in 21 years in the military. But many poeple outside of the military are also affected by PTSC; cops, EMS, firefighters, victims of crime, ect. The only real contributing factor to these folks is that they have experienced very stressful situations or have operated in extreme environments.

PTSD claims the lives of many of its victims who can’t handle the after affects of their experiences. This is preventable if we all chip in! If you or someone you know is experiencing the symptoms or showing sign of PTSD, please get them or yourself help.

There are people who are ready and willing to listen to you. You don’t have to fight your demons alone.


UPDATE!!

Talk about timing...just read this at lunch. A Therapist stalks a soldier she was treating for PTSD a la Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Wow! Maybe she should be told it might not be too wise to threaten someone who is being treated for PTSD for being in a war and all...that fight or flight response may still be tweaked way over to FIGHT!

Rachelle Santiago, therapist, accused of stalking soldier she was counseling for PTSD

So was she a "therapist" or...

"I'll take "the rapist" for $100....suck it Trebek!"

Sorry, just had to throw that on in there!
