Woohoo!  
  
 
 
 
 
I just found out I have been listed in this website as one of the top fifty bloggers on PTSD!
It says my website is good for seniors, and I wish it didn't because I am also trying to communicate with the new vets and their wives and get them to my website where they can get a different perspective on PTSD as survival skills that later become your biggest problem.
In case you just found this blog, I have written a book too, Recovering from the War, which was a Viking/Penguin in 1990. After it went out I print, I became a publisher and publish it as Patience Press, along with two children's books (Why is Daddy Like He Is? ditto for Mommy) and three patient education pamphlets, After the War: For the Wives of all Veterans, An Explanation of PTSD for Twelve Steppers: When I Get Sober I Feel Crazy, and The War at Home. There are also 13 free articles at Patience Press which I want all vets and other trauma survivors to have.
However, to say I am pleased at being included is an understatement. Writing is a lonely occupation and I have no idea if I am being read or not, so this is quite happifying! (Hey, I'm an English major. I get to make up words!)

since i spend so much of my time writing about soldiers, i think i need to read this book. (yes, they're ficticious soldiers, but i want them to be as realistic as i can make them.) :)

Good for you! Wanna trade?
Stina Leichtstina_leicht on November 16th, 2010 07:55 pm (UTC)
er... too late! already ordered it. besides, i don't have anything to trade... yet. lol. the more i read what you've written, the more i see how you're probably going to like OB&H--which makes me happy. it seems i've already put a lot of that information into the character intuitively. (how and why is obvious to me now. lol.) that said, this is very valuable information. you've done quite a service for the community in general by making it available.
patty1943patty1943 on November 16th, 2010 09:25 pm (UTC)
I see that and will send it off tomorrow. Let me know how you want it signed. I do it on the title page (as my agent taught me). Do you want it just signed or signed to you?
Stina Leichtstina_leicht on November 16th, 2010 09:52 pm (UTC)
oh, squee! i get a signed version? sign it to me, please!

Happy Birthday!

(Did you find that novelator, hmmm?)
patty1943patty1943 on November 20th, 2010 12:12 am (UTC)
Not yet. Bob says it probably fell off when we came back from Maine. It's probably waiting on I-95 for someone to find it.
I am happified, though.
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I feel twelve? two? not 67!
