    Dep that's a whole another subject that get's my feathers ruffled too. The medically undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and over-diagnosed. IMO, until there are serious changes in Healthcare reform within the smaller practices, we tend to look away at what some of these Physicians and Psychiatrists are doing. Feel depressed they'll refer to an Emergency room after giving you a script and an appointment for 3 week$.

    Back to the VETS, how do we help them???

    it would be interesting to know how many were on Psych meds for PTSD symptoms as many of those meds can and will cause suicidal thoughts according to the side effect papers!

    Sad?? This is very upsetting and it looks like we ALL are failing those that served The article states that Suicide exceeds Combat deaths and I've know it was going this route for a while.

    Food for thought, "What did they kill themselves with, and why is our Healthcare system failing them ??

    I've >>listened<< to Vet's, in Bars-Go FIGURE! A lot of these poor fella's appear to be suffering deeply-Maybe it's the alcohol? The last thing I want them to do is to 'come home" with me, NAW, , but I DO offer them a listening ear!!
