In late September, Washington, D.C. psychiatrist Dr. Joseph Tarantolo authored an op-ed piece titled: “PTSD, The Grand Scapegoat.” In it, Tarantolo described PTSD as a “pseudo-diagnosis” and held that “the PTSDer gets an enormous amount of pseudo-sympathy.” On Friday, Tarantolo’s voicemail message said he was out of the country on vacation.
There is a link to a PDF that sounds like what you are talking about... , I will send the link if you want it...
I don't quite understand what you mean. I will comment more if I manage to find the article you speak of.
I couldn't find it, could you link me to it?
go to nbcnews& sports ok i will try to get link ok but this doctor said that he does not believe that ptsd is real
i can't find it now but it was titled skeptics about PTSD despite claims about the iraq& afghan campaigns
I still can't find it. Maybe they took it down because it offended people.
I found the article...Posted the link, but you will have to copy and paste it into google or yahoo...\\
Thanks. Sounds like the military is just trying to irresponsibly keep in its afflicted soldiers which is just right out immature of them. I also have a few friends who flat out think schizophrenia is a false diagnosis despite me telling them I hallucinate and such. There are deniers of everything pretty much.
thanks sza, i feel good about it now ok :)
As friends and family are concerned, it is difficult to imagine anyone we love having PTSD or any mood disorder.....The US Government has a totally different agenda when denying that certain disorders even exist.'
It has to do with money and with keeping the customers satisfied........
( those being the voters and the News Corp and those citizens with
the deepest pockets......)
I also heard something about this on Fox..take no notice I had some PTSD after a Trauma and trust me its a real thing..
I found this website on line the other day and thought I would share it with you....There are free PDF files for your own use if you go into the web site deeper...
