FREEDOM isn't free.

WHO PAYS THE PRICE?



What is PTSD and why is it important to understand?




Very common
More than 3 million US cases per year
  • Can't be cured, but treatment may help
  • Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
  • Requires a medical diagnosis
  • Lab tests or imaging not required
The condition may last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions. Symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, and anxiety.Treatment includes different types of psychotherapy as well as medications to manage depression and anxiety.

Vanity Fair published an article in June 2015 entitled PTSD: The War Disorder regarding how we're striping ourselves bare from the inside out. Check it out. http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2015/05/ptsd-war-home-sebastian-junger




 Romance Raises Awareness and Funds to Help: Big round of applause to romance readers! From the sales of Too Hot, so far, we've raised and donated over $400 to Semper Fi Fund.


      Last book in the Bad Boys Western Romance series, Too Hot To Handle is about two Marine vets who are brothers who have been through the wringer. It's a Western at heart but so much more. It has a bite. Too Hot has the framework of a military romance with an edge. Why? War isn't pretty.
      But hope is and that's what the core of a story about two souls finding each other under all the shadows, veils, scars, and luggage hauled around.      



Hope this short blog post opened your eyes and your heart!
