Why do military people act like they're the only ones who get PTSD?

PTSD stands for "post traumatic stress disorder". Civilians get get it, and I have it.

No body in their right mind thinks that Veterans or those in the military are the only ones capable of getting PTSD. I don't know where you're coming from with this. The vast majority could potentially be veterans...possibly... but that doesn't mean only.

PTSD is so incorrectly over used that everyone acts like they have it whether they do or not. Military people get it and then act like they don't have it.

Why who is saying they act this way ? And how do you know this ?

People talk about combat vets like they

re the only ones who get PTSD, when I'm a civilian, and I got it. Trauma can happen to anyone.

He is asking why we should take your word on how people talk about them, rather than rewording what you already said.

Your response indicates that it is civilians who tell you only combat vets can have PTSD, and not vets telling you that. Is that the case?

People who support right-wing politics tend to be irrationally left-wing when it comes to government welfare for veterans whether it's accommodation or PTSD therapy, they scream in proud and angry protest that the filthy Milllenial youth is not respecting those who "fought for their freedom". These same people then protest to cut welfare and benefits for anyone who may need it outside the military.

I'm a moderate, but I agree about right wingers. I question their sanity.

I was PTSD after some encounters with street punks when I had to fight for my life and walked away unhurt.....things started getting hairy as I had made a bit of a legend of myself. There's a lot more to the story, but I knew I was a marked man and survival was moment by moment, couldn't sleep....until I surrendered my life to God and gave Him full responsibility as I yielded my will to His and He took over as my life, my Savior, and He taught me that I have no want with Him as my Shepherd, He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters, He restores my soul and leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil for He is with me, His rod and staff comfort me. He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies; he anoints my head with oil, my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

They dont.. they get it and people help end of story this argument feels to have some kind of personal biased to people in the military.
