Dating a soldier with ptsd
Those suffering from PTSD often appear distant from their partners and are subject to sudden mood swings.
It's important that you remember to take care of yourself while encouraging your significant other to get the help they need.
No one has endless patience, energy, or strength, and there's nothing noble about being a martyr for another person's sake.
Occasionally, a person who is trying to help someone with PTSD will need to take a step back and deal with his or her own feelings.
Nevertheless, remember that trying to control someone and forcing the person to open up is not an effective way to get them to reveal their feelings.
Wait for your partner to open up when they feel ready. Let them know you're willing to listen when they want to share their feelings. In any relationship, being there to provide an ear is invaluable.
