This week most of what Wayne talked about was PTSD and how important dealing with it is. He said he was fine but sometimes he would have a dream or a thought and it would take him back to his time in Vietnam. He considers himself lucky that what he experienced was pretty minor compared to other veterans.
He said a lot of men in Vietnam had trouble sleeping because they would relive what had happened before or would try to guess what the next day would bring…something that was and is impossible to do in times of war. He said the only way to really deal with it was to try not to think about it. He kept saying that it “truly is mind over matter.” A good mindset in my opinion.
