Post Traumatic Stress Syndrom

Greg Spencer was a police officer, and even after he retired, he would wake at night with nightmares was the images of the violence, pornography and other terrible things he observed and experienced plagued him nightly. He also began to suffer from rapid onset macular degeneration to the point where he was legally blind. The PTSD and the blindness all changed one day.



Chad Robichaux was a cop until one day when he had to shoot someone wrestling for his gun. He got a medal of valor, but he retied soon after and enlisted in the marines. That was before 9/11. He was deployed to Afghanistan where he saw what hatred can do a culture. He allowed the hate and bitterness in his heart, and he brought that home to his wife and children. He was deployed a total of 8 times.He went from being extremely angry to being weak and broken, filled with anxiety. Diagnosed with PTSD, he went from the golden boy to cast aside. He found a temporary fix in jiu jitsu and wrestling and became the top American flyweight, but the rest of his life fell apart. He fixated on taking his own life, but then his wife began to pray for him.
