The Best Advice

No matter what, the first thing you should do is always tell the truth from the beginning. Never tell a lie to the judge. Never exaggerate anything to your attorney. Always be up-front and honest with the DBA Doctor about your injuries. A doctor, a Judge and an attorney will more likely be able to help you if they believe you are being honest. Liars never get trusted. Would you trust one?

DBA Workers With PTSD - Go With Me Here

You may not be a former Navy Seal or a Former Army Ranger - but go with me here. If you are an ex-Defense Base Act worker - that has PTSD - you should read this article. It will help put your stress into perspective. So, go with me here. Stay with me.

Navy SEALs And The Stress Of War

Most of you know I am from San Diego, home of the legendary SEAL Team 6. Navy SEALs are some of the toughest, most heralded military warriors on earth. These brave men protect our freedom - on a daily basis. Navy SEALs are trained here in San Diego. The training that Navy SEALs have to go through is incredible.

SEAL training is beyond brutal. It pushes men to limits that ordinary people can't fathom. SEAL training is designed to weed out men who may not be able to successfully complete the demanding missions and operations which SEALs face. SEAL training is designed to place incredible mental and physical stress on these men. These are the same extraordinary stresses they will endure as SEALs.

Fact is, NAVY SEALs are trained to kill. Fact is, NAVY SEALs are trained to face death on a daily basis. Fact is, despite all this training to endure the most incredible stresses you and I can ever imagine - they are human, just like you. Just like me. Just like all of us.

Enduring The Stress Of It All

A 2013 article in our local paper was about a former Navy SEAL that is now homeless due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He was down and out due to the stress of war. I didn't need to read this article to know that former SEALs suffer from PTSD. Because we represent former Navy SEALs that went to work as DBA security workers in Iraq and/or Afghanistan after their SEAL career had ended. We see what PTSD can do to these fallen warriors.

What I would like to point out is this. Navy SEALs are human. Just like you. Just like me. Just like all of us. Fact is, no matter who you are or what training you have or whatever - - you can still suffer from PTSD. Even Navy SEALs. Even Army Rangers. Even DBA workers that on a nightly basis have to run to a bunker while putting on body armor. Even DBA workers that have to ride on some of the deadliest roads on earth in Iraq and Afghanistan. Stressing out became they know that people just like them have been killed due to IED's on these deadly roads.

There Is No Shame In Having PTSD

Here is the teaching point here: if a highly trained Navy SEAL can have PTSD - there is no shame in you having PTSD. You don't have to sit in your room and suffer alone. Reach out. Get help. If you don't know where to start - reach out to a seasoned Defense Base Act Lawyer. A good DBA lawyer will help you get into the counseling that you need to get your life back. A good DBA Lawyer will help you and your family get the money compensation you deserve. It doesn't have to me or my law firm. Just don't go this alone.

You don't have to go this alone. If you are an ex-Defense Base Act worker and you are suffering from PTSD - get help. There is no shame. If the most highly trained warriors on earth can suffer from PTSD - there is no shame in you suffering from PTSD.

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

According to the Mayo Clinic, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Many people who go through traumatic events as DBA workers have difficulty adjusting and coping for a while. But with time and taking care of yourself, such traumatic reactions usually get better. In some cases, though, the symptoms can get worse or last for months or even years. Sometimes they may completely shake up your life. In a case such as this, you may have post-traumatic stress disorder.
