Love Our Vets" Restoring Hope for Families of Veterans with PTSD

Love Our Vets PK


Love Our Vets: Restoring Hope for Families of Veterans with PTSD (Deep River Books, April 2015)
Chances are that if your loved one has seen war, he or she has Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder at some level, and you who love your veteran will also be deeply and profoundly affected.
Finally, the cries and needs of the loved ones have been addressed in this comprehensive, practical book, now newly updated in its second edition!
Love Our Vets answers more than 60 heartfelt questions, providing down-to-earth wisdom and much-needed tips for taking care of yourself. Sharing as a counselor and from her personal experience of living with a 100% disabled veteran with PTSD, Welby O’Brien gives hope, encouragement, and practical help for families and loved ones who are caught in the wake of the trauma. This book addresses a broad spectrum of issues and concerns and offers realistic wisdom from a wide variety of individuals who share from real hearts and lives.
Now newly revised and updated with additional material, the second edition of Love Our Vets continues to be enthusiastically welcomed by VA and other counselors. This is not just another book about PTSD; rather, it is a tremendous resource for families and loved ones who struggle heroically along with their vets to face the day-to-day challenges.

My opinion: What an eye opening book! This is such a humbling and hard to read book, but such an awesome resource at the same time. This book speaks from the authors own experience with dealing with PTSD in her husband and with her background in counseling this book is a great resource for the loved ones of those dealing with PTSD. It really stresses how patience is the key and it is so insightful with how to lovingly deal with the many issues that come with a loved one struggling with PTSD.  This book is yet another reminder for me of the many sacrifices that our veterans have made for us and makes me prayerfully support them and their families.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
