Article: A Genetic Link to PTSD?

This is very interesting. And it brings up an interesting question: If you knew you were likely to develop PTSD, would you still take the same path into EMS? Hmmmmm…….

I’m having a really hard time answering that question. I think probably at the time I got into EMS, if someone told me I would have PTSD, I would have said “yeah right”. But, in hind-sight, knowing how difficult it has been to work through and how tough it’s been for my family, I’m not sure……

What say you??

  1. It does raise an interesting question. Though I think I’d still do everything the same, like you, I also see what it has done to my family. For that reason, I really don’t have an answer.
