For those of you who may fit this category but don't feet comfortable talking unless you know you are anonymous, I want to educate you on what I offer in this blog and on my website.
- Blog Comments: Yes you are required to put a name. But it doesn't have to be your real one. You could put 'A Vet Who's Angry', 'Tired All The Time', or anything like that. It does ask for an email address. The only reason I require this is in case someone declares an intention to hurt himself or someone else. The email is NEVER EVER shared with anyone without the express permission of the person commenting.
- The Contact/Request Form: This form is on the Home Page. This is for the person who does not feel comfortable sharing an email. No name is required. You can ask a question confidentially and ask me to address it as an anonymous blog posting. What this means is that your question will be asked behind the scenes directly to me.
I cannot express to you enough how important this is. We need to afford people the opportunity to come forward for help anonymously and without the fear of recriminations from family, friends, or employers. My goal is to be the life preserver you need and the rope that draws you to shore. Start taking control of your PTSD and start living with it, not in it!
