Why Is Mom So Mad? (A Book About PTSD & Military Families)



Disclaimer: I myself am a disabled combat veteran who scored himself some post traumatic stress and a traumatic brain injury from my time in Iraq. This audiobook version is full of triggers so I don’t want to read any shit about how great it would be without the booms and the bangs. This is my therapy, not yours.

“The children’s issues picture book Why Is Mom So Mad? is a story for children in military families whose mother battles with combat related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). After a decade fighting wars on two fronts, tens of thousands of service members are coming home having trouble adjusting to civilian life; this includes struggling as parents. Asymmetrical warfare has blurred the lines of women in combat roles, female veterans are impacted by this through current conflicts more than ever.”
