PTSD Patrol: Proceed With Caution

How many times have you been driving down a road, see a sign with "Proceed with caution" and immediately go on alert? It is human nature because you do not know what you are getting into.

If you have PTSD, get one of these signs and put it where you can see it to remind you to take the time to think before you do something you'll regret.

We have seen examples of what can happen when people are caught on video flipping out. The video goes viral and makes the person famous for the wrong reasons. Then they lose their jobs because their boss and coworkers have just witnessed a side of their character they had no clue existed before that. 

Some may think it is no ones business what someone does off the clock, but they are wrong. We get hired to do a job based on our skills and history, but the employer judges our character by what we show them. Show them a video like the viral ones, and no matter what you did in the past, no one will remember it.

With PTSD, part of it is dealing with anger and rage. You need to get control over that and learn how to proceed with caution because if you flip out, especially in public, the results can, and usually do, make it worse.
