as a non- vet I sufferer of prolonged duress stress disorder PDSD - it is time that people recognised both conditions - PDSD is caused by never knowing what is going to happen next in high stress situations - it's existence is denied in the UK because of the Northern Ireland situation and the number of military who were patroling streets not knowning if they were going to be blown up! Its effects are just as dibilitating as PTSD and in many case can be worse as it is not only triggered by individual events but by ongoing events. So trigger events can't be avoided.
My sympathy for all other suffers time does heal just it takes many years....
