In late September, Washington, D.C. psychiatrist Dr. Joseph Tarantolo authored an op-ed piece titled: “PTSD, The Grand Scapegoat.” In it, Tarantolo described PTSD as a “pseudo-diagnosis” and held that “the PTSDer gets an enormous amount of pseudo-sympathy.” On Friday, Tarantolo’s voicemail message said he was out of the country on vacation.
There is a link to a PDF that sounds like what you are talking about... , I will send the link if you want it...
Thanks. Sounds like the military is just trying to irresponsibly keep in its afflicted soldiers which is just right out immature of them. I also have a few friends who flat out think schizophrenia is a false diagnosis despite me telling them I hallucinate and such. There are deniers of everything pretty much.
As friends and family are concerned, it is difficult to imagine anyone we love having PTSD or any mood disorder.....The US Government has a totally different agenda when denying that certain disorders even exist.'
It has to do with money and with keeping the customers satisfied........
( those being the voters and the News Corp and those citizens with
the deepest pockets......)
