Veterans and our soldiers are coming home from war or getting out of the military and when they get home they can’t afford rent or they have a mental disease from war. Homeless veterans tend to experience homelessness longer than non-veteran homeless. This should not be happening to our soldiers. This is very undesirable for our troops to come home and becoming homeless. They fight for our freedom and our rights and we repay them by becoming homeless.
The co-existence of the veterans in the society is a challenging task as many are affected by the mental health problems depending on the level of military influence on the individuals. The influence of the military institution in taking the obligation of recognizing the severity of alcohol and post-traumatic stress disorder(PTSD) helps the development of the society. The majority of victims adapts the use of alcohol as a way of self-medication. The rising effects of posttraumatic stress disorder and alcohol dependency in society depend on the personal life management by the returning veterans in
The challenge still lies in the severe under-reporting of urinary incontinence issues. After all, seniors cannot get help if nobody knows there is a problem. If your senior loved one may be having trouble with urinary incontinence, it is important that they have their situation investigated. A full third of overactive bladder issues may be linked to lower urinary tract infections. Not only could the bladder problem be quickly reversed with a UTI treatment, but the pain and discomfort of the UTI would be addressed as well.
This is due to the increased suicide rate of service people returning from wars in combat zones such as Afghanistan and Iraq. Due to the unacceptable high rate of suicide of its service people the military has tried to implement improved guidelines to help service people recognize that they are in need of professional mental help and also increasing the mental help services available to its service people. Some individual who have experienced situations of extreme stress may develop disorders of the mind such as dissociative disorder. Dissociation may be a way for the mind to protect the individual from a more dangerous or extreme type of mental breakdown. Fortunately dissociative disorders are not as prevalent as some other types of mental disorders.
In fact, we'd hope an alternative explanation would have more value than the disease label, by giving people with addictions something the disease concept lacks: an understanding that is useful for treating the problem. This question has been discussed in Module 1 amongst my cohorts and I with the majority stating addiction was a disease and those few who questioned this, only did so because someone they truly loved became an addict hurting their feelings which in turn clouded their
According to Keith Ablow’s “The Dangers of Cramming”, cramming can do more harm than good because of its negative effects to our mind and body. Such side effects are temporary intellectual lapses which causes a person to lose focus. However, this effect differs to everyone since each of us has different requirement for a full good night’s sleep. Ablow mentions that though students think that stimulants will help them cram, they actually don’t, it actually just “… disguise – briefly – a reduced capacity to grasp, retain, and retrieve information” (Ablow 5). Coffee causes Caffeine Intoxication Syndrome which leads one to have anxiety, panic, headaches, and insomnia.
The author explains that it is “a condition that can develop after you have gone through a life-threatening event” (Daniels and Steineke) Some of the symptoms include: depression, self-blame, guilt, and shame, anger or aggressive behavior, and alcohol/drug abuse. As elucidated to by the authors, those who suffer from PTSD “may try to avoid people and places that remind [them] of the trauma” (Daniels and Steineke). They will also feel numb, startle easily, and always be on guard. Veterans will blame themselves for what may be traumatizing them, and become hooked on drugs and alcohol in order to cope with their problems. The authors are informing the reader about this horrible ailment and that it must be recognized and treated
There are some tradeoffs to including a drug test for welfare recipients. Most welfare recipients have children that are hungry and need the support. If their parents are drug addicts, their children would already have less available to them, but this would prevent them from receiving care. This discussion is emotionally significant because the children are developing and need these programs to cultivate into functioning adults. If we didn’t drug test individuals these families would receive the programs, but the mother/father may not be a productive and healthy
Unlike a natural disaster, servicemen prepare for war, but the actual battle field is a lot different from the practices and organized society the servicemen are used to, so this experience can have some effects on the brain. Death of a loved one can cause Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder because it is for someone to live without a person who used to be very frequent
At some point in every person’s life, they will encounter an obstacle. Some obstacles will have a minimal effect, while others have a more catastrophic effect. In either case, it is how the individual rebounds and preservers which measure their strength. In the days of tragic overdoses, it is extremely difficult to move on from losing a loved one suddenly to this epidemic. It should not be assumed that those struggling to overcome obstacles are weak, but instead, it is that they suffer a lack of resilience.
