WWII veterans mostly went undiagnosed because PTSD wasn't acknowledged as a real disorder. Even today, many service people wont take advantage of treatment options because it looks bad for their career.

At that time they called it shell shock. Standard treatment was a short stress leave sort of recovery followed by a readaptation period to get them used to society. A far as I could find out the flashbacks are incurable mental damage, but diminish within a decade only to resurface in the elderly.

before my grandfather passed away we had to make sure there was never anything on his night stand when he went to bed. he had a tendency to throw things in his sleep, thinking they were grenades.

PTSD is not something to take lightly. I have PTSD and so does my father. I have treated mine with therapy (it was not war caused). My father has his as he was stationed in Germany to help when the Berlin wall fell, he was in Desert Storm, and he served 2 tours in Iraq, plus when he's home he is on the police force. He's seen a lot and as such developed PTSD.

Certain triggers will set off PTSD episodes (flashbacks and the like). You need to learn what triggers set off your Grandfather's and try to minimize them. If it is dreams, keep sharp objects and blunt objects out of his reach at night.

My ex is a ranger and he was PTSD. it's pretty bad he has to take ambien (a sleeping drug) at night or else he has trouble going to sleep, but even then sometimes he can't sleep. when we were together and i stayed with him he said he slept better because he was with someone he trusted and didn't feel so unsafe. he even used to sleep with a gun under his pillow.

I know a bats painful, but try to be understanding to him. imagine reliving a nightmarish war over and over. just be creative and pad yourself up. oh and I would deffinantley wear a helmet of sorts. even when your sleeping.

OMFG, people it's a god damn entertainment app/ website. Fuck off and stop being a stuck up bitch. All of you get your heads out of your asses and make comments pertaining to the FML instead of personal gain. If your life sucks and you have to take it out on people, right a fucking FML.
