It is a different world. After the world wars men could go down the pub and self medicate, talk to other men who had been through the mangle and understood. I was at the battle of such and such, told everyone else what they needed to know. Everyone had experienced the horrors of war so there was a common understanding and people were allowed to get a bit strange and they were given time and space. Now, how many people in Britain have been involved in a fire fight, how many have seen friends die in battle? Our world is more concerned about hurt feelings on Facebook. These men and women feel they need to put on a face, that they are ok, everything is fine and normal, when inside they are far from fine and normal. They have very few who know what that feels like, who they can really speak the truth to and let the mask down.
I hope Terry and his family get some help to come to terms with this.
