there's no such thing as PTSD.
Seriously??? I have "not" been in the military. But I was clinically diagnosed with PTSD after the lost of my Boxer/Mix in an accident that was my fault! Had it not been for a diabetic check up I would not be here today!
I buried Stewie in our backyard in San Jose, in 2001, when we moved to NV in 2003, I dug him up and brought him with us!
I plan on cremating his bones on 9/9/2014. All of us don't handle a loss in the same way...just saying.
