There are so many threads in what you say, it's obvious that you're one
brother who is really struggling. Stick with the above --- IT'S ALL POLITICAL!
From your side, the politics is that those who send children off to war
NEVER want to pay to clean up the mess they create. Others see that the
definition of PTSD is overly restrictive due to it's origins in combat
("shell shock," etc.). The bully boss who reduces good employees to
nervous wrecks is creating traumatic stress just as much as the
warmongers. But the business community doesn't want to have to pay, so
they fight against it all the way.
When you see that IT'S ALL POLITICAL, you'll see that we're all on the same
side, or should be.
