Re: My vision

A quick response to you would be to applaud your efforts, and point you to a non-profit in Maryland, CRAB. They may be a resource to you for instruction, boats, safety, etc. You can find them at Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating | The Joy of Sailing.

Re: My vision

Very impressive that you're willing to help. PTSD can be pretty serious. You should be sure there is a professional clinician involved in the process and decision on who you should be trying to help in this manner.

Well, aside from my spinal damage I'm also diagnosed with PTSD. I've learned through years of coping that it's not always about Drs and medication. Most of my help has come from the brothers around me that have been through the same thing. A huge part of learning to live with PTSD is the comrodery between one another.

I am well aware and commend you for the effort. However, not all PTSD is the same. Some is combined with other mental disease and needs different attention. Just be sure you provide help to those you can actually help. Otherwise, the effort is wasted or worse. It simply needs some professional involvement to know the difference.
