Michael Kleinman over at Change.org has a nice write-up on the impact of PTSD on aid workers titled Dealing, or not Dealing – Part 2. I know first hand how when things go wrong in the field the memories can stick with you for a very long time. A valuable reality check for those of you thinking that field life is glam and for that other set that doesn’t feel quite right following their last field gig. Be sure not to miss Part 1.
