Descrizione prodotto


War has gone on since the beginning of man’s creation. And will continue until the end of time. This certain evil brings death and pain not only to its victims, but also to the warriors and their loved ones sharing our small planet. It’s not the way we’d like it to be . . . it is the way it is.

Diary of a Vet’s Wife, Loving and Living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, covers an eighteen year period lifted from the author’s personal journals. It took sixteen years to write and reads like a novel.

Divorced with three young children, she begins a journey in search of love she had only read about in books. Eighteen months later, she meets and marries the love of her life, oblivious to the perils waiting and what she would sacrifice for her dream. Her story reveals the day to day struggles of an ordinary family living with the chaos caused by PTSD.

It shows her unblemished love, filled with hope and promise, unaware of the demons vowing destruction. Much too soon her impossible dream is shattered by nightmares her husband doesn’t recall and pain he refuses to share. Her love is unyielding her journey is long. She retreats to a life of secrets in order to spare the children and her family from the truth. Yet she has no place to turn.

Eyes will be opened to the family dynamics of living with PTSD, secrets shared by tens of thousands around the world. The spouses, families and friends who love their heroes and bravely grieve, knowing life will never be the same. These forgotten warriors are left to a battle they were never trained for.

The reader will slip into her world like a fly on the wall as she takes them places most have never been, while bonding with others who know the terrain well. Hearts will be touched long after they turn the last page.

HASH(0x985d70f0) su 5 stelle An honest look at a tough topic 27 febbraio 2013

I grew up in the world Nancy writes about. I remember listening to the women in my neighborhood talk in hushed tones about the problems their husbands brought back from Viet Nam...the night terrors, the drinking, the hyper vigilance. I watched the parents of my friends either split over the very things Nancy describes.

For too long PTSD was kept swept under the rug and never discussed. In this time of increasing openness, I am thrilled to see a book that discusses the Spouses' view.

The husbands and wives of Vets are just as much strong worriors as the Vets themselves. It akes more love and courage than I could imagine to face the fear and strain placed on a relationship and family by PTSD.

This book opened my eyes to what the Moms were whispering about all those years ago.

I am thankful I ofund this book, and thankful Nancy gave a voice to private wars that were fought after the War was over.

I can't recomend this book enough to anyone who would like a better understanding of how the affects of War never end.

This is a story of love, prayer, desperation and despair. The love of the author for her husband, her desparate attempts to find someone to help him with his PTSD, his desperation and suffering brought on by a disease he did not understand and the despair felt by both of them when they found nowhere to turn. The story is captivating, the book evokes strong feelings and leaves the reader knowing "there must be a better answer for our Vets". The lesson to be learned, in my opinion, is that the government had not anticipated the problems of sending young men into this kind of war with minimal training and it truly had no exit strategy to deal with their problems other than to send them home to their families and forget about them. The author obviously wants others in this situation to know they are not alone and she offers a list of places they can get help. It is an eye opening story that definitely holds your interest.

I picked up Diary of a Vet's Wife and couldn't put it down until I finished it. It was a very sad and very compelling read, dealing with mental illness, depression, addiction, co-dependency, loneliness, despair, and ultimately survival. The end, an unfortunate relief.

I applaud Nancy MacMillan for sharing her story with such courage and honesty in an effort to show others who are living with the same issues that they are not alone and that there is help.

Diary of a Vet's Wife should remind us all that it takes a village -- to help those who can't help themselves.

Di Jack Smith - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
When I purchased DIARY OF A VET'S WIFE I did so thinking that it would be part of my research for a novel I am writing myself. I thought I would skip through MacMillan's writing and glean some details I had somehow overlooked in my other research. (Note: my current writing project is about a Marine veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan who has been diagnosed with PTSD.) Much to my surprise my skimming was soon set aside as I found myself drawn into MacMillan's compelling, touching and often painful story. It turned into a "can't put it down" read! Did it help me? Yes! But not only in the manner I was hoping for! MacMillan's journey brings forth a reader's emotions as it unfolds through her memoir. The author and I seem to share a belief that the story of PTSD is one that the American public may not want to, but needs to hear. Especially now that there is a promised end to the Afghanistan presence of U.S. and troops of other nations, which will lead to large numbers of newly returned men and women who have experienced a certain form of hell. If you are at all interested or even curious about PTSD - or have a loved one who suffers from this malady - or want to do some pro-active preparation for the return and re-entry of a loved one - then read Nancy MacMillan's memoir. If you are at all sensitive you will be touched deeply by the sharing of her painful journey.

Diary of a Vet's Wife: Loving and Living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is truly a tale of love and loss. Two people so in love, yet both torn apart by the Vietnam War. The years of struggle to make things work, to understand and conquer the terrors is a stirring tribute to the power of love and prayer. Only the love of God could have turned this tragedy into a woman's quest to help others who still suffer.
God bless Nancy McMillan for her strength, courage and most of all, love.
