MST is NOT PTSD. Help.
Quoting Soniam301:what's mst?
MST isn't a diagnosis; but anxiety, depression, or PTSD could result from it, which would then be a diagnosis. You need to talk more with your counselor and find out what your actual diagnosis is.
MST is Military Sexual Trauma. I was raped twice on active duty.
I remember both experiences like they happened yesterday when certain men, who mean well, just touch me. I am no longer a touchy feely person, I don't allow a lot of people to hug me or touch me. Women, too. But, I served back in the day, 1979 to 1986, when I was medically retired. After each one, I went to the clinic, I was given a Valium and patted on the head, well, that is just how men are.
"We, at VA, must be visionary and agile enough to anticipate and adjust not only to the coming increase in women Veterans, but also to the accompanying complexity and longevity of treatment needs they will bring with them."
