Posted by Bear's man. He's kind of joking, but kind of not...part of PTSD is specific triggers (such as a loud noise, which generally can't be prevented), but part is environmental stress, and getting enough sleep (or napping when stress levels are rising) keeps that limited amount of stress-resiliency recharged enough that PTSD triggers (such as noise) are that much more likely to not cause the handler to shut down. Bear's man can now leave the house (something he often couldn't do before), his wife can now leave for work and not worry...Bear is taking good care of his man. Sorry for this wall of text...these pictures are just very inspiring! :-)
