PTSD Support: with compassion and corny humour

Dr. Dee Rajska is a Canadian clinical psychologist who has a blog and website directed towards helping military service personnel manage and recover from the symptoms of PTSD.


The underlying advice is valuable for all of us, whether it is we or someone we know who has PTSD, and whatever the source of our injury.


The author is experienced, smart and funny.  Her blogs are short, down to earth and give practical help.  The website is called Coming Back Home and can be found at http://canadianveteransadvocacy.com/comingbackhome/


You can subscribe and get her latest, every week or so.  I also recommend that you read through the archived entries.  They explain PTSD and strategies for coping with its symptoms in an easy and helpful  way.
