1. Stay down and wallow in the depths and despair of PTSD.
2. Bounce back up and get on with your life the best you can.
The Author took the second option and has gone flat out to beat his adversities. He has proved he has guts and determination. Seems this is second nature for many Veterans. I have many Regimental Brothers who have done likewise in different and likewise ways.
Unfortunately, Veterans rarely get the aftercare they deserve, PTSD is nowadays so rife that the helping Charities, Combat Stress etc are swamped with clients and there just isn't enough time or money to go round.
You have to help yourself....and this man certainly has.I hope that through this book, it has and will continue to help others.
Thank You very much!
Neil Spencer’s book, ‘The Battle Within’ tells of his own personal struggle with the aftermath of being blown up by a bomb while serving in Iraq, as well as the lack of support he encountered on his return ... the time he needed it most.
It is a heart felt and gripping story of one man’s dogged determination to overcome the mental toll that war inevitably takes on soldiers, and the pain he endured to survive against all odds. It is also a book every civilian should read in order to understand the cost people like Neil Spencer willing pay for the defence of their country.
It says it all when many ex SAS soldiers are impressed with Neill's endeavour and strength when everything seems to have hit rock bottom.Read how he pulled himself up frm the depths of dispair that would have finished a lesser man!
