  •  This stands out.... (11+ / 0-)
    ...he was doing ok till they went to the restaurant, there he was exposed, the noise of the TV's, people talking, having people walk behind him, the waitress coming up from behind him, was just too much....  
    A friend with PTSD (100% disabled, 5-6 years to be acknowledged) had very similar issues, definitely couldn't handle having people walk up behind him, couldn't stand being inadvertently touched....  He gave standing orders to all his friends "Don't kill any mosquitos you see biting me, just lettem bite me..." (if you swatted a bug on his shoulder he'd basically go berserk....)

    You can just imagine the problems he has with the legal system....you know, judges who order him to go to anger management when he's got specific orders from the VA shrinks NOT to be placed in anger management...
