Watching one’s child suffering PTSD is a heartbreaking experience. It made me feel totally inadequate as a mother, as I could not take away the pain, fear, hurt, anger etc. of my child. I also believed this anger was directed at me personally and found it difficult to understand. The Survival Guide gave me, in words that I can understand, a greater knowledge of PTSD, showing me how to help myself deal with PTSD and therefore help and support my child.

The Guide made me cry and I do have a lot of the problems that are in it. I was amazed at how the Guide is me and my ex-wife said the same. It is appreciated, thank you.

The Guide brought me to tears. Now I know.

The Survival Guide blew me out of the water.

Jimmy Johnson is to be thanked and congratulated for producing such an admirably clear guide, not only on what PTSD means to a sufferer, but on what remedial action could and should be taken by those who are in a position to help veterans.
