Help needed bad Male MST

Question

Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

Help needed real bad

you should go to your Mental Health Clinic at your VAMC .

Ask to see the MST Coordinator  

he/she can get the Ball Rolling. get you into therapy  ect,,,ect,, start a paper medical trail ect,,,ect,,

if you want to?  file a  ITF claim For MST PTSD  After your diagnosed for MST PTSD BY THE VA  and then  request your C-FILE FIRST THING and then gather up all your evidence  When you get all your ducks in a row  ''so-to-speak''   then file your claim   the ITF gives you a year before actually filing and starts your EED.

Main thing is  seek treatment  it helps cope with this horrible disease.

I contacted my MST coordinator at the VA and they have been very helpful. They gave me a pamphlet about MST for men and really put into perspective of some issues that I have and provided a reason for them. I go once a week for a 1 hour session and it feels good.
