My husband was awarded 10% for tinnitus about 4 years ago. In the last couple of years he has been having severe flashbacks. Very withdrawn. He can't sleep He has the Vietnam Service Medal w/3 Bronze Ser Stars, Republic of Vietnam Camp. Medal, Air Medal, Combat Infrantryman Badge, National Defense Serv Medal. He has horrible stories and can not forget them. I have tried to talk him into going to the VA to see if he would quality for PTSD. He says they will just send him to some shrink and he does not want to go through all the memories again and then probably be turned down. He has retired and now with so much time on his hands, he just can't shake the flash backs. Any suggestions?
Does anyone think he would have a problem? He does not think they would think he qualifies and just leave him at the 10% for tinnitus. I just found this site.
Thanks for any info.
