PARKER, Colo., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, more than 5.2 million Americans suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, every year. This disorder is a severe mental disease that can cause witnesses and victims of war, violent crimes and other traumatic events to believe that they are constantly in danger or send them into a deep state of depression.
Robert Carson Krause is a veteran of the Vietnam War and the Cambodian incursion. After his time in the military, Krause began to exhibit many of the signs of PTSD and eventually became suicidal -- he was admitted to the inpatient PTSD program at the Veterans Hospital in Denver, Colorado.
Krause's first book, titled "War and Living with PTSD," is a semi-autobiographical look at the disease and the effects that it had on his life and the lives of thousands of other American soldiers and veterans.
Partially based on a journal that Krause kept throughout his time in the service and during his treatment, "War and Living with PTSD" will help those soldiers who are returning home from contemporary conflicts know and understand the signs and symptoms of the debilitating illness.
