Military & Front line

In the context of the difficult transition from the battlefield to the home front, a mindset that fosters success in the world of Military can become a double-edged sword. Fighting through injuries and ignoring pain to complete the mission may be what is required in the short term, but insistence on our own invincibility over the long term can prove fatal.


Likewise, partners & children of military and front line families are some of the most underrepresented members of our society.  Constant transitioning, prolonged separation, fear for a loved ones safety, and increased uncertainty in daily routine can all equate compartmentalization and a lack of self care necessary to navigate a balanced life. 

It's just a 'Mild TBI'

'People could be battling depression, anger, anxiety, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, obesity, ADD, migraines, balance problems, vision problems, and be told: “it’s all in their head.” When they finally do decide to go get help for all the things mentioned above you, they end up with a box full of prescriptions that mask all those individual symptoms associated with TBI. Or worse, they get told to go to behavioral health to get their head examined, except nobody ever examines their actual head'...This is an excerpt from a great article in The Havok Journal that nails the reality of a 'mild TBI'. 


TBI's are often an undiagnosed and under-diagnosed disability for military members. Current research has provided emerging evidence of adverse health and performance effects from blast overpressure ranging from headache, dizziness, ringing in the ears, a decrease in cognitive performance, and sleep disturbances. Depression is a common problem after TBI. About half of all people with TBI are affected by depression within the first year after injury. Even more (nearly two-thirds) are affected within seven years after injury.  More than half of the people with TBI who are depressed also have significant anxiety.

A good man is a very, very dangerous man who has it under voluntary control."
