Gradually his brain emerged from the clogged clouds, and at last he was enabled to more closely comprehend himself and circumstances” (Crane 87). In today 's society this would be a form of PTSD ( post traumatic stress disorder). Although PTSD was not an actual disorder discovered yet during the civil War, the signs were all there and it was known as battle fatigue. After losing some of his closest friends and watching people around him get shot and die, he was left with many memories that were very hard for him to stop thinking about. PTSD involves re-experiencing the trauma, avoidance of things that are reminders of the trauma, and an uncomfortable state of arousal usually connected with readiness to avoid re-experiencing a trauma (Piotrowski and Range).
I enter Elizabethtown, just across the river from Gettysburg. Gettysburg was a time bomb waiting to explode because of the closeness of the Confederate army stations circulating this place. The trauma doctors navigated throughout the whole station giving instructions, suggestions, and orders to empty hands like me. I was occupated with a lot of bleeding out soldiers and deaths were even smelled when you walked in. I helped the most I could, but my training wasn't enough to save these soldiers
The Vietnam war itself wasn’t as bloody compared to other wars, but the percent that died is similar. Learning about World War II veterans, it is important to consider how veterans deal differently with their grief, the job of combat medics, and how those medics have a higher chance of experiencing PTSD after the war. Many lives were lost during the war and people were affected differently by these deaths. When people in general lose a close friend or a loved one, they experience grief in different ways. Losing a friend in battle could be a whole different situation, resulting in more
Effects from the Great War In the early 20th century during the Great War many problems occurred among the soldiers and civilians. Going into WW1, people really didn’t apprehend the severity and impact that the war would have on society and the soldiers, both mentally and physically. When the soldiers would return home from duty, it was hard for them to go back to their “everyday” lives especially if they came back wounded or mentally unstable. Life would become more of a coexistence rather than life, as they knew it before. By the end of WW1 approximately 80,000 thousand soldiers were diagnosed with shell shock.

The biggest wish I have is for there to be a harmless cure for cancer. I wish this because in the past couple years/months people with the biggest hearts always seem to die of some certain kind of cancer. There are many good and bad things about this, but mostly it 's good things. The good things is that there wouldn 't be anymore cancer and less people would die. All of our family/friends could still be with us today if it wasn 't for cancer.
It was first conceptualized in 1980, prior to that, the soldiers were just given psychotic meds and sent on their way.“In World War One, they called it shell shock. Second time around, they called it battle fatigue. After 'Nam, it was post-traumatic stress disorder”(Jan Karon, Home to Holly Springs). Despite more awareness, PTSD is still not understood by the general populace due to this, veterans coming home from war have an extremely difficult time re-assimilating into normal American society. This difficulty results in a social stigma around our vets, which makes this such a major social issue.
Lyddie should choose to sign the petition. With nothing to lose, Lyddie can help her friend Diana, and help the girls around her to avoid working in a toxic area for a long amount of time and the long working hours each girl must participate in each day. One reason Lyddie should sign the petition is because the working conditions in the Factory are harmful to all the factory girls containing toxic material from the machines filling the air. When Lyddie just figures out that Betsy has to go home because of a sickness of the factory in chapter fourteen, she states while Betsy is leaving to go home in the boardinghouse, “It ain’t right for this place to suck the strength of their youth, then cast them off like dry husks to the wind.”(Paterson, p.113) Therefore, the lint and dust filling the air while girls work each day is making them so sick that they can’t gather the strength up to work hard again. The working conditions is making it very easy for girls to develop strong sicknesses, that could cause them to end up having to leave the factory.
Many of the men and women who fight overseas for our freedom don’t have freedom their selves. Many veterans that have fought in war suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD for short. If you don’t know what this is, PTSD is a disorder that develops in someone who has seen or lived through a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. War is no exception to that. Although most war vets don’t suffer from this disease.

“Shell-Shock” took the British Army by surprise, because they were not expecting the soldiers to have a negative side effect because of the war. Not only did “shell-shock” affect the troops that were involved in World War I, but it also affected the nurses that cared for the troops. When “shell-shock” came to be, the doctors were unaware of how to treat it. Doctors had formed theories from soldier’s symptoms that it might have been a concussion, or unnoticeable damage to the nervous system from the exposure of the repeated shell blasts (Jones 250). However, as the war went on, doctors began to see “shell-shock” as a psychological matter (Jones 250).
I think the Roman advancement that had the greatest impact in humanity was battlefield surgery and I believe that for a few reasons. Before this was invented, if you were in the military, went off to fight in a war, and got badly injured, you would probably just die. This problem started to become really common and caused the military to lose a lot of people to fight. In addition, being a soldier became the most dangerous job. So Romans eventually came up with the idea of performing surgery and having a medic off the battlefield for soldiers who were hurt really bad.
Amputation was a familiar use during the Civil War. Since medicine wasn’t advance during the war to give the necessary treatment to the solider for a bullet in their leg or arm surgeons saw amputation as the greatest survival for the solider (“Amputation”). The most amputated limbs were legs and arms (“Amputation”). In the medical tent the surgeons had numerous soldiers coming in with bullets in their limbs or diseases the soldiers have and if amputation was delayed for more than 48 hours there would be blood poisoning, bone infection, or gangrene in the solider (“Amputation”).
