Luke Jensen: Another Face of PTSD

Luke Jensen: Another Face of PTSD

July 17, 2011 ~ The article, Serving in Afghanistan turned a tough guy into a nervous wreck, is just one of the many stories out there sharing the reality of PTSD.  Luke Jensen was described as a bull of a man, a former undercover cop, a lover of motorcycles and weightlifting, the person you’d pick to handle a situation…. but when angry Afghans far outnumbered him he had never felt so exposed or so afraid.

Take a few minutes to read this article which shares the story of Luke Jensen’s transformation into the world of PTSD and his battle to recover. This is just one of the thousands of stories that are being played out across our nation.

We need to learn more about PTSD and how it is affecting our returning combat veterans. There is a good chance, if you don’t have a family member dealing with the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress, that you will have a friend, a coworker, or a neighbor who is dealing with the invisible wounds of war. To learn more about the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, visit our other website, http://fellednot.com,  dedicated to educating others and fostering awareness about the rising epidemic facing our nation.
