    The psychiatrist I mentioned, Dr. Fritz Perls, once told me, "If the holes in your head match the holes in the patient's head, nothing can happen."  He also put that in some of his writings.  

    Perls was right.  It is why a person suffering from PTSD has no business trying to do amateur therapy.

      Who by the way is no different then pilots dropping bombs or now those that control armed drones, taking up guns, especially today's widely popular semi-auto's and with extended clips, as self therapy are the many mental triggers that might release but thinking they can be used for others as their therapy leaves one wide open for those triggers to be pushed in them and directed right back on the one who joined, like a merc does, his nightmares as theray!!

      And yesterday the family of the friend killed with tried defending what they were doing with the one that ended their lives!
