    Good luck! I suffer PTSD from firefighting as do many of my friends. Please tell us if this is worth it. I've tried meds, therapy and have just resigned myself to the idea that this is how i' am now. Although the nightmares have subsided a little, i do have great bouts of depression, paranoia and high risk behavior. I am in a program for my drug addiction and alcoholism which is also a common way to self medicate for PTSD sufferers. Keep us informed my friend. be safe.

    Brother, this is he'll and I will not live like this anymore. I'm off Meds, I will give a complete update on this. It may be a new treatment, but I am willing to do it. If it gives me 50% relief I will be happy.

    Mission complete, success. Hard to explain, but just a little sore in the neck where the injection happened. But I feel I good I mean real good. Feels like a big weight was lifted off my shoulders. The Doc told me that when I wake up in the morning it will be amazing. I am a little tired, drove from Buffalo at 3 am to get here, so I am going to eat dinner and stop at a strip bar and see how that goes. LOL I will let you all know more tomorrow. Pete
