The same goes for self-medication with either prescription Draculas Memory Secret or illicit drugs or alcohol, fear of being perceived as weak by superior officers, or damaging a promising military career despite the fact that all 1.4 million active-duty military personnel have been encouraged to seek help for any potential mental problems. Besides, there is an overall macho attitude and culture. Statistics fail to include the mental issues that are sometimes attendant with oft-observed military members' risky auto and bike driving, some of which are bound to be anger-fueled and suicidal. Afghan veterans were more than 75% likely to die in auto crashes than the general population and 148% were more likely to die in bike accidents. All applicable statistical data have correlated strongly with military suicide rates. With PTSD, the anger may simmer for months before exploding either in-country or stateside against others or oneself.In 1984 I was laid off at the peak of my career from an Inc. 500 company that had reached number 17 on that prestigious list. Apparently I never got over the anger portion of the grieving process that situation instigated. Two unfruitful years of seeking further employment certainly didn't help matters. I castigated others using my sarcastic wit and bit people's heads off when confronted by them. My underlying anger progressed deep-down, unbeknownst to me. Mild depression had set in and quickly descended into clinical depression. I was barely able to dress myself, moved at the speed of a three-toed sloth and suffered disrupted sleep and eating patterns. One of my two remaining friends introduced me to his psychiatrist and I was placed on Prozac.
