't Bob and Rose Lynne Miller d Gene and Roberta Francis j -Walsh County Veterans' Service Office PTSD: Back the basics Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can occur following a life- threatening event like military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or violent personal assaults like rape. It can also occur after experiencing death and agony associated with the previously mentioned events. Most survivors of a traumatic event return to normal with a little time and encouragement. However, some people have stress reactions that don't go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. These individuals may develop PTSD. People who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares or night terrors, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, and feeling emotionally numb. These symptoms can significantly impair a person's daily life. PTSD is marked by clear physical and psychological symptoms. It often has symptoms like depression, substance abuse, problems of memory and cognition, and other physical and mental health problems. The disorder is also associated with difficulties in social or family life, including occupational instability, marital problems, family discord, and difficulties in parenting. Deciding if someone has PTSD can involve several steps. The diagnosis of PTSD ]s most often made by a mental health provider. A person who went through trauma might be given a screen to see if he or she could have PTSD. A screen is a very short list of questions just to see if a person needs to be assessed further. A positive screen does not mean a person has PTSD. A positive screen means that this person should be assessed further. ' Going through trauma is not rare. About 60% of men and 50% of women experience at least one trauma in their lives. Women are more likely to experience sexual assault and child sexual abuse. Men are more likely to experience accidents, physical assault, combat, disaster, or to witness death or injury. Going through a. trauma doesn't mean you'll get PTSD, though. Alth9ugh over half of us go through some type of trauma, a much smaller percent develop PTSD. If you or someone you know may exhibit these symptoms, treatment or assistance should be sought through the local health care facility. For more information regarding a PTSD claim, do not hesitate to call your Veterans Service Officer at 352-5030 or e-mail 4, t$ .e rectp PARK RIVER, N.D.

Contact The Press: (701) 284-6333 LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD Rill A December to Remember (North Dakota 2010) By: Adele Hankey It was just three days before the New Year, radio and TV ann gunced loud and clear high winds, lots of snow are headed our way. Freezing temperatures are here to stay. December 29th howling winds did blow. December 30th we see white drifts of snow. December 31st all stores in Fargo closed the door, as snow-flakes kept falling more and more. Closed up tight were all airports jammed with people of all sorts waiting for their homeward flight all curled up in the comers over night. North Dakota highways were closed all around with cars and trucks in the ditch all bound. Wind chill temperature hovered 30 degrees below. Near Fargo, 100 vehicles piled up in the snow. Highway personnel worked hard to get them out. This is storm they won't forget no doubt. Hardegt hit in the state were Bismarck, Wahpeton, Rugby, Devils Lake, Jamestown, Fargo and Valley City. With twelve to fifteen inches of snow and cold, many people didn't listen as they were told. North Dakota storms can be dangerously bad. When warned, use common sense, stay home, you'll be glad. It's January 1st 2011, roads are still icy and slick, and the snow drifts are as hard as a, brick. But, now things are getting much better as we cope with North Dakota's weather. Above: The bitter cold from late December's blizzards didnl stop Gail Martinson, Krystle Gire, and Maxine Twamley, from donating $1,000 to the ministry of Park River Bible Camp, The three women are,owners of Shenanigan's Family Restaurant and the donation was given on behalf of the restaurant. Their donation as well as donations and gifts from many other Park River Bible Camp supporters are gratefully accepted. Gifts like theirs continue to provide a Christ-centered camp and retreat ministry for all ages up and down the Red River Valley. If You Can't Find What You're Looking For...
