health and PTSD

The marine corps times had an article on PTSD and how it is connected to health problem.

Well it seems that PTSD can cause strain on the heart which can lead to heart attacks. Really?! Does that mean Rusty's benefits go up since they have know about the connection? The article also said that depression and physical pain go hand in hand with PTSD.

I just wanted to share that! LOL I guess now we need to go back to the veterans administration and get Rusty's rating raised.

Bes Reguards to you both,
