THERE IS NO DEGREE FOR PTSD

PTSD GOES UNTREATED

     While there are probably other conditions that are not properly treated, PTSD in my opinion is among the most. It’s not that they do not try, or have ill intentions. They just don’t know how to treat it properly. This is because they do not understand it on a professional or personal basis. The severity of this condition is much more then any literature can attempt to explain.

     PTSD in my opinion and personal experience is one of the most misunderstood psychological conditions that remain for the most part untreated. PTSD is not a new condition, however, given the huge amount of veterans returning with this, it is not something that should or could be ignored.

     There needs to be some FORMAL TREATMENT or protocol for ALL SERVICE MEMBERS following active duty. There should also be a professional that is trained and qualified to treat PTSD. In every other medical field the Dr. is trained in a specific field …. Podiatrist, Cardiologist, Neurologist, Dermatologist, Endocrinologist, and so on…….

WHY ARE MENTAL HEALTH CARE PRACTICERS NOT BOUND TO A SPECIFIC ??????

POKER – LIFE

I find being dealt POCKET ACES is a limited potential gain and a high risk potential loss. In life and in poker, I would would rather be dealt Any two cards against an opponent with ACES.

SIMPLY PUT- (A-A) LOGICALLY is % favorite (PRE-FLOP) ——–BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOOK AT IT AS THERE ONLY BEING 2 CARDS LEFT IN THE DECK TO IMPROVE = ACE OR ACE

***(I MIGHT BE OFF ON MY MATH HERE )

Odds of Hitting on the Flop:
• Hitting another kind of your pocket pair on the flop: 7.5 to 1 (11.8%)
You will pair at least one of your unpaired hole cards on the flop: 2.1 to 1 (32.4%)
• You will hit two pair on the flop with unpaired hole cards: 49 to 1 (2%)
• Hitting two or more of your suit on the flop when you hold suited cards: 7.5 to 1 (11.8%)
• Hitting a flush on the flop with suited hole cards: 118 to 1 (0.8%)

SO HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING (ONE OF MANY EXAMPLES)

10-SPADE 8-SPADE  ——–   VS ——— ACE-DIAMOND ACE- HEART

FLOP:    —- 6SPADE—-10HEART—-7SPADE—-

SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING? !!!!!!!!!!!????????????????

CLEARLY THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF SCENARIOS REFERRING TO THIS…….. BUT IT IS NOT THE POKER MATH OR STRATEGY I’M TRYING TO SHOW OR EXPLAIN—–

———-IM SAYING THAT SOMEONE DEALT THE BEST STARTING HAND IS AT A DISADVANTAGE FROM MY OPINION/EXPERIENCE…… BOTH IN POKER AND IN LIFE, THE PERSON FEELS TO CONFIDENT AND I BLINDED BY WHAT IS “CONSIDERED A POWERFUL UNBEATABLE HAND”  THAT THIER PRIDE AND STUBBORNNESS/DEFIANCE TO FOLD THEM ACES WHEN THEY SHOULD BE, IS THEM UNABLE TO CONCEDE TO THE FACT THEIR INITIAL HIGHER POSITION HAS LOST ITS POWER, AND EDGE.

THE HORRORS BEFORE MAKING CERTAIN CALLS

I am pretty sure that everybody can relate to this. Those phone calls, or discussions we really do not want to have, but can no longer evade. A lot of anxiety starts to build up as you get closer and closer to the time you need to make that call. This anxiety can be built up that day, week or sometimes even months prior! Your mind just keeps racing around and around in circles wishing for someway to avoid it.  Once you get it over with, you are relieved, and at the same time you realize that the experience YOU had leading up to that moment was far worse than dealing with the actual situation.

COMMON SENSE AWARENESS

DO YOU KNOW WHAT COMMON SENSE IS? OR, MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT IT IS NOT!

     Are you aware that common sense is not a valid reference or even a reliable source to support to itself? This will definitely be confusing and difficult to comprehend even if I was able to describe it well.

     Maybe it is a good thing that this described in a way without proper writing techniques….. Something like this is hard enough to understand to begin with, without me making it worse by trying to write properly.

     So I’m just gonna write it how I think it. Your common sense is only what you have commonly accepted to be accurate, and excepted as true in the past. In no way is that permanent, or expected to be a permanent. It is only temporary beliefs formed by past experiences that have supported it. When new information is presented that may challenge these “common sense” beliefs, they should always be considered as a possible replacement for the old common sense!

     FOR EXAMPLE- THIS WAS SOMETHING I HAVE JUST RECENTLY EXPERIENCED…….

          —-MY ENTIRE LIFE I WAS UNDER THE BELIEF THAT COAL COULD BE TURNED INTO A DIAMOND UNDER PRESSURE AND TIME ——- IT WAS COMMON SENSE TO ME THAT COAL COULD BE TRANSFORMED INTO A DIAMOND!!!!! THERE WERE JOKES REFERENCING THIS (STICK COAL UP HIS *** AND IT WILL TURN INTO A DIAMOND!)

     I’M PRETTY SURE THAT EVEN SUPERMAN HAD SOME CONTRIBUTION TO THIS “COAL INTO DIAMOND”

     WELL, MY COMMON SENSE THAT COAL CAN PRODUCE A DIAMOND HAS JUST RECENTLY BECAME AWARE TO ME AS 100% FALSE!!!! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR COAL TO PRODUCE A DIAMOND! EVER! —- WITHOUT GOING INTO MOLECULAR SCIENCE —- IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!! 

SO- That is an example of my recently updated common sense!
