A lethal injection of a service dog .To assasinate some of those symptoms and to lower the anxities that flow. A PTSD service dog , or which ever one wants to call him/her at his/her side is an intervention program that elivates those deep embeded symptoms of ptsd. Which some are too deep to explore. Only a k-9 with a deep sense would know it. Some k-9 ;s have true abilities to know first hand such instincts over human. We all know many rescue dogs are capable of such things. Bomb squad ect and search and rescue. Service dogs have been around for sometime now and ADA and Fair housing certainly are ahead of us. VA drs signed for my service dog. This is good news. Only one would encounter goverment encounter of refusal in a public establishment to turn down a veterans service dog issued out by a VA- for a veteran. HUD and ADA backs this up. What this is intended for is I have written congressman of montana, govener of montana, and the Senator of Montana. What is the proposal - "Specialized Medical Equipment" issued of prosthetics department of the VA system and that it become part of the VA branch system. Perhaps this stigma disapear in the process.! That in the process, the service dog is allowed to be accompanied into public to lower the anxities of the veteran and assist the veteran into public. The response I have gotten myself as a veteran from public in general is very supportive. 99% of the people I encounter is gladly accepting me and my service dog into the public. Buses, post offices. banks. hospitals, drs appointments, grocery stores, and especially my dr appts. The staff at the medical VA esepecially welcome him at my hospital stay I had inpatient stay four days- my service dog was with me- the staff treated me very well. Ive been treated very well- with my service dog-I have gotten out much more than I used to and travel more feeling safe and secure- that feeling alone- is -powerful for me. Independant means of living. I have interest in previous hobbies that I one time had prior to tramas- and have passion that I hadnt before. Having an interest in life. There is that one small percentage out there- however that we are aware of that is being addressed -the stigma that exsists, that can become lager than the 99%- for a moment. But with that strong support that exsists to remove the stigma of the low 1% to be dealt with- in time- it will be over riden. Both in remedies, monetary values and educated ways. That very small 1% is uneducated. They will be dealt with thru the civil matters- of civil rights- of discrimination laws. That is how this stigma gets removed. At any rate, I do appreciate you looking into this website. Alot of my life has changed since I got my service dog fully into my life as of June 30, 2008. I have picked up a bridge of my life that I have long missed, and the service dog is my bridge to that life. I hope this brings hope for someone else as it has for me. Or inspires another veteran is what this is about. The ultimate goal is, that the Veteran administran issue Veteran service dogs for veterans for this issue. In which is being accomplished. Thank you most for the support. National support.

I dont think I have anything - it is everybody else. I seriously beleive I did not have anything wrong with me- so move forward and not backward- or try to. First and foremost get the treatment whatever it is needed. I also want to say- The beast will show up in your life- when It feels like - or grow- and or tear it up- or just linger around- like a shadow - or dust out your home and or house like waves. Sometimes mild forms- and or earthquakes! Magnitude can be devastating and sometimes can take a lifetime to show up. The best thing I can suggest- is early confrontation to that- stuff. Power it off- before it does try to dust into your home. It is for Strong support Cavey vbn zeus 2-12-2009

It is illegal to ask what the service dog is for It is Not illegal to ask ~ if it is a service dog. It is illegal to imposter as a Service animal- and not have proper papers. It is a felony - It is a misdemenor to interfere with a Service animals work and disabled person. Wearing a vest on the Service animal indicates it is working and allows public the knowledge . There are certain Service animals passed by Congress and law ~ on what type of animals are acceptable in general public. Check with those guidlines and those laws before getting the animal ~ A new law passed 2008 . These Service animals are allowed on planes, buses, boates, banks, resturants, ect. all but surgical places- in general. The idea of the Service animal is to accompany and lower the sympmtoms; not arouse them and wearing a vest helps reduce the questioning for me anyway- in general public. No one asks me or questions- 1% is ignorant on service animals because I am not blind nor imobile- A Service Animal is a Service Animal. Doesnt matter what he is for; matters I have those papers and Id on him- the vest just stops people from asking- and increases support. They think it is great. The ignorant get sued. Good woofin to you....
It is a new way of life feeling safe and secure
Change ~ In politics ~ In future ~ In readiness ~ Inspiring Others
What are the effects of PTSD?
Untreated PTSD can have devastating, far-reaching consequences for sufferers' functioning and relationships, their families, and for society. Women who were sexually abused at earlier ages are more likely to develop complex PTSD and borderline personality disorder. Babies that are born to mothers that suffer from this illness during pregnancy are more likely to experience a change in at least one chemical in their body that makes it more likely (predisposes) the baby to develop PTSD later in life. Individuals who suffer from this illness are at risk of having more medical problems, as well as trouble reproducing. Emotionally, PTSD sufferers may struggle more to achieve as good an outcome from mental-health treatment as that of people with other emotional problems. In children and teens, PTSD can have significantly negative effects on their social and emotional development, as well as on their ability to learn.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
