Judyth Piazza interviews Vietnam War Veteran Fred Rendon, Jr. Author of Echoes of P.T.S.D.
Fred Rendon Jr. served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. He suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder for many years, but found a program that helped him recover and now he wants to pass on the information with his new book, Echoes of P.T.S.D.
Fred Rendon`s paramount desire is to spread the word to as many people as possible about PTSD and how to combat it and live a peaceful life. He focuses primarily on veterans because he suffered with PTSD from the point of view of a veteran involved in war.
Rendon lived a very miserable life consisting of thoughts of suicide and death of family members and friends. Depression anxiety anger self-loathing isolation and total lack of self esteem were some of his constant thoughts.
Every day was chaotic for Rendon and whoever was around him. He does not want anyone in this world to live the life he lived and that so many veterans currently live today.
Rendon heads up S.A.V.E. - Special Assistance for Veterans Endeavors.
PTSD is known to cause intense nightmares, trouble sleeping, extreme anxiety, an inability to interact normally with others (particularly in large groups), depression and crippling flashbacks.
