“Happy New Year, Brice!” my message starts. “How are you? It’s been a while. I have a surprise. I’m about to finish my book on post-traumatic stress disorder and I was thinking about your experiences in Afghanistan. Do you want to talk about it with me? Don’t worry, I’ll translate the book into English. I’m also in contact with some British soldiers who are sharing their struggles with the aftermath of their missions. So, let me know, ok? Thanks, and feliz año nuevo.”
“Happy New Year to you too Nell! I hope you’re okay?! It’s been a long time since I talked about my days in Afghanistan.”
from PTSD: My journey of Self-Discovery and the Strange Characters I Met Along the Way by Diana White is available at Amazon (link in sidebar).
Await for your reviews. They will help me move forward and finally change chapter.
Brice (Name has been changed) was à Guy that I have met in 2014.
He is big hearted but aftermath of DEPLOYEMENT had trust ISSUE, SHAME And guilt.
Hé could not stay in à relationship for more than 6 months.
Today hé is still running. But hé opened up with me And for this reason I am forever grateful. 🙌 🙌 🙌
Hé is thé only french combat veteran I could interview.
