Unfortunately the same PTSD that we see causing so many suicides in our military is going to now affect our health care workers. As a country we need to support both sets of hero's with good mental healthcare.

A friend who works at my DH assisted living facility, in the kitchen and housekeeping, posted on FB that she is worn out. She didn't sign up to be an essential worker. She wishes people would not complain that they are stuck at home because she would like to have just one week off to catch up on sleep. I feel for her and wished I could trade places with her for that one week.

This is so sad. I am so sorry that the doctor did this. It is a horrible thing. I hope more suicides do not happen as a result of Covid-19. It is deadly enough as it is. So sad. I can't get over it.

Hopefully they are on top of this now and are getting programs set up for PTSD treatment. Very sad to see our hero’s going through this, both healthcare, first responders and military. You would think at some point in time we would learn our lesson and be better prepared.

This is a very sad story. PTSD is no joke. I have Vietnam friends that are still suffering . There are events and stories that can trigger their anxiety.

After Vietnam, 911, The Gulf War, and Afghanistan (still going on) you would think that our first responders, healthcare workers , and our military would be better prepare for this problem. IMHO.
