Pretty sure PTSD came about right when war became sitting in warzones months at a time (as opposed to just marching for a year and fighting one battle where you just stand in line and maybe get to charge a formation once if you're lucky). The constant stress of war is not for everyone. Another thing that happened is that soldiers started to kill the enemy. Before ww2 only about 1-2% of soldiers actually aimed to kill when faced with an enemy outside of immediate danger. Then we started using man-shaped targets, psychology and stuff and these days I think 1-2% makes up the guys who DON'T shoot to kill. For some dudes that is soul-breaking shit to do.

In short, back in the day you could get away with just hanging around and doing your field chores and when faced with combat you could aim high and count on your formation to kill for you, whereas today you become a killer whether you want to or not. And as much as I like it I can respect that plenty of guys don't.

Then why did medieval warriors not get PTSD? They butchered people with their own hands, cut their limbs off to warn their enemies and overall, they were pretty far from today's pussies.

7a95b6  No.634969


They did. There are stories of knights screaming during their sleep due to the stress of war. It was simply not talked about for reasons I don't know.

b76c5c  No.634970


Knights were raised from childhood to be warriors, not to be nice boys.

Knights didn't have to fear snipers or bombs ending their life at any moment - if someone shot at arrow at them, they could at least maybe catch it with their shield.

Knights didn't get flown home from the battlefield in a day, expected to put the war behind them and go on with normal life, they got to march or ride back home with their buddies and talk shit out.

And when knights killed, they were almost never alone about it - they stood or rode side by side with their fellow knights. Whereas on modern battlefields you often have to disperse and work somewhat independently to minimise the effectiveness of enemy mortars and suppressive fire. And radio communication is just not the same as having a friendly next to you.

And there's a bunch of other differences between modern and medieval war. I'm sure knights got PTSD too, but I don't think it was to the same extent or that the effect of it was the same in the societies they lived in.

698813  No.634975


>stories of knights screaming during their sleep due to the stress of war



To me the issue seems to be from lack of realistic training plus lack of an ideology.

The soldier needs to want to shoot the enemy. He needs to hate that enemy. That cannot happen when you send him to fight literal nobodies across the world. The soldier needs to fight a soldier of another country that has been at war with for thousands or hundreds of years. (See Balkans for example).

When from the age of 7 you're told that the country next to you are subhuman murderers, you're not going to feel any guilt from massacring them. You need an enemy that opposes your very culture, or else your troops don't feel like they need to kill. It's like a chore to them. "Gotta shoot some armed shitskin to protect some unarmed shitskins in this shitskin country because the UN told me to. I sure cannot wait." is what goes through the minds of modern troops.

But compare that with something like the war in Ukraine, or the Yugoslav wars, or any war where 2 sides don't fight each other purely for money, they fight because they legit hate each other. Do you think people get PTSD there? Civilians and teenagers who were forced to fight maybe, but the soldiers don't, because they wanted to kill and conquer for their country, not because politician A disliked politician B.

In other words, you need to have a school system that feeds the youth pure genocidal hatred for the enemy, so that when these kinds grow up, they will volunteer to massacre the enemy down to the last man.

One of the biggest misconceptions about medieval warfare is that lots of people died.

They didn't, though a lot were maimed. Armored knights died rarely, and as they were often nobles and well respected, battles would sometimes stop if one did so that he could be carried off of the battlefield and his fellows given a few minutes to mourn.

Footsoldiers on the other hand would often lose a limb or two to infection from arrows and from cuts and stabs. What we would now know as PTSD was likely pretty common but would be explained away as Cowardice or a lack of faith in most cases.

>in medieval battles not many people died

Thousands died in battles alone, not including wars.

Yes, there were a lot of pussy-tier battles between pussy nobles, etc. But overall medieval warfare was pretty radical.

5483e7  No.635061


The vast majority of warfare in the middle ages was one army camping out on the lawn of another army until one of them ran out of food and they signed some kind of surrender deal. Much of the conflict that did happen was border skirmishes. Massive, bloody battles and total warfare are a relatively new thing as far as history goes, and are very much a product of democratic regimes.

496411  No.635074


Three-ish things:

1: Battles were rarely stopped just because someone got dinged to death but noble deaths were, indeed rare, and what's more most medieval battles were fairly small scale affairs consisting of a few hundred, primarily nobles and mercenaries, dinging each-other up until the losing side decided they'd had enough and decided that particular patch of swamp was no longer worth it.

Also, hostage taking was a big thing.

2: Actually commoner deaths could get pretty grim, the thing to remember is that most of those people did not die in battle nor were under the constant stress of combat.

Throughout most of history, most soldiers would've been exposed to what's well bellow the 81 hour mark of combat fatigue. Most soldiers would've, in fact, only seen a few hours of combat in their entire life - and this would've been between months of marching, camping and other menial work.

3: Socialization is of extreme importance. An army on the march, in medieval times, was also in many ways an army on the rape(since pillaging was considered a legitimate and desirable form of warfare since it avoided actual combat and got you a tidy profit whilst damaging the enemy and putting pressure on them to just give up) however in stark contrast to modern day society, people back then were a lot less sensitive to death. Infant mortality was high, death due to disease was high and every winter someone was going to croak of cold, starvation or just happening to catch hypothermia.

Combine that and the relatively fatalistic outlook of a lot of people at the time and you see a society and a people a lot less shocked by death than people the past 2-300 years or so where we've grown to value individual lives a great deal simply because we can.

So it's a combination of social factors and lack of actual combat stress. Chopping someone's head of or having the guy next to you is a lot less stressful in all than modern combat first because it's a lot less random and second because it's neither constant nor entirely out of your control(which, whether or not you get RPG'd today more or less is).

As such, the average medieval soldier had a lot less to fear and was exposed to a lot less stress than pick-a-grunt today or anytime in the past 200-300 years.

As a general rule, most soldiers can take only about 81 hours of cumulative combat fatigue - that's about 81 hours of high stress before they start breaking down. Significant, traumatic events can cut down on this quite significantly especially when those traumatic events run a hard-counter to that persons' well established morality(i.e.:calling in a strike on an enemy village only to see deafened, concussed ash-covered children stumbling around looking for their parents).

Tldr: Knight or mook, your average medieval soldier had a cushy job where he maybe had to actually fight for his life once or twice a year - if that. By contrast, modern day combat personnel are under a considerably greater deal of stress both more often and for longer.

Medievals certainly did get PTSD, just nowhere near as often since they were nowhere near as stressed and traumatized.

Dude, how do you get 1000x more pissed off at macedonians than you do at turks, who literally paint over the churches you built and call them mosques.

The region is historically named Macedonia, of course the people living there would adopt the name. Just like Americans adopt the name America, even though they're fucking Bri'ish or whatever. Canada is from Canata, which means "village" in native languages.

Why are you so fucking butthurt about this? For one thing, you don't even have a historical claim to the name, because ancient Macedonians were the enemies of the Greeks.

Yeah, I have PTSD. I was an artillery forward observer and I deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. I watched a lot of people die. We would plot and monitor the active drones in our area and they would be our eyes on target when we would initiate and fire our fire missions. We mostly used MLRS M31A1 rockets but sometimes we used Excalibur artillery. We never used conventional artillery due to the probable error in range. The predators would take dudes out too sometimes and we would also clear airspace with the Air Officer on duty for CAS EVAC and MED EVAC 9 lines. The worst part is thinking about the other guys who died and got super fucked up. I hate thinking about it. We had eyes on this one squad patrol for artillery support because we could have a rocket down range in only a couple minutes when air isn't on station. Anyway, there was a scout about 20 meters ahead of the patrol and he stepped on a buried IED that was intended for a vehicle. There was like 50 pounds on explosive under this kid and he went flying into pieces. There was a canal to the left of the patrol and it was about 50 meters to the other side from where the patrol was on the dirt road. Anyway, his legs made it to the other side but his upper torso landed in the canal and was gone for 2 days. The real problem was kid had a radio so all of Centcom had to do a crypto rollover like every few hours until the radio was found. It fucks with me. I wasn't even there but I know that lives absolutely depended on my timing to clear airspace and throw rounds down range. They never told us if the guys med evaced to Germany ever lived or died. Of course you know some died. I want to say it was 1/9 or 2/9 that was there when I was there, but those guys in our AO got fucking massacred. They lost like an entire company. They had to augment dudes from around the entire country to support them. It was fucking brutal. It was every single day they were getting hammered in firefights. There was this other guy I remember. He was a high valued dude that we confirmed was going to be at his house at a specific time by paying off a cousin or some shit. Anyway, it was like 730 in the morning and the sun was just coming up and we laughed a hellfire from a pred that literally blew the dudes ass off. It hit directly behind him and just threw his body into a million pieces. Watching him die wasn't as bad as the reaction of everyone else who was on watch. The entire COC erupted like a troop of chimpanzees. Whooping and screaming and cheering at this dude who was plowing his garden with a hoe just get his ass blown out his face. It just made me think what the fuck are we doing losing our humanity like this? What the fuck are we, animals? It was just a disgusting display. I couldn't stand it. I felt sick. I suppose I just felt a connection because we had a garden all through my childhood years and there were days I was out having to dig dirt. There's a lot more but that's enough for now. Yeah, I've got PTSD. It's not exactly what everyone thinks it is. It's not necessarily the trauma of killing, but the trauma of watching those next to you get killed. It hurts having to watch those situations unfold and not be able to be there and help. You see guys bleeding out the same time you see the 9 line come down the pipe and you have to get the shit cleared in less than a minute so the bird can get in the air.

You're a retarded leaf nigger who thinks he has more historical sources than we do on a subject we know better than anyone. Macedonia was nothing less than a Greek kingdom. Purely Hellenic, nothing else. The very fucking name is Greek.

"Enemies of Greeks" is a braindead argument because every single relevant city-state fought each other. It was never-ending civil war, not foreigners fighting one another. We came up with the name Macedonia, we ruled that land and ultimately it's ours.

Skopje subhumans are a bunch of albanian/bulgarian rape babies with a nu-language ( a retarded low IQ version of Bulgarian) and they claim they wuz macedon n' shieeeet.

Albanians are very similar. They have nothing to do with ancient Illyrians. Their DNA is different, their language is completely different and they're just a bunch of slavtard monkeys that immigrated there during the 6th century bc. As the years went by the Illyrians went extinct and the slavtard sub 90 IQ monleys claim they wuz great Illyrian kangz.

Ancient greeks translated names all the time, and all we have today are their translations because they wrote them down. Doesn't make them greek.

This is basically two groups of people unrelated to Macedonia laying claim to the name because some hollywood movie made it famous. It's pathetic and sad.

No you didn't. But even if you did, the fact that you ruled it at one point wouldn't make it yours today.

Albanians have exactly fuckall to do with the slavs, they are literally a kurd clan imported by Turks.

Because we have the capacity for empathy, and generally find ourselves in horrid situations, either our own bravery (Misguided or not.) Pushing us to do dangerous acts, or our victimization at the hands of criminals, either by racially charged attacks, or simply by virtue of being the most abundant in a given area.

Macedonians were considered distinct from (albeit similar to) ancient Greeks to the point Alexander the Great's ancestors had to prove they had greek blood in them in order to be allowed to participate in the Olympic games. On top of that, the land has been inhabited by non-greeks for centuries now, and Greece really has no claims to push there.

I do like the retarded dispute about the name, however, as it stops Macedonia from joining EU, and anything that hampers EU is a good thing.

Which they did.

Co-inhabited with non-Greek, Jews were the second largest minority in Thessaloniki, does that give Israel a claim to the name of Macedonia? Hellenophones were always there and always identified as Macedonians.

>Which they did.

Sure, but they were the ruling family, not the actual populace. If the actual populace was greek, there would be no reason to ask them to prove anything, would there? Ancient Greeks definitely did not consider Macedonians to be Greek.

>claim to the name of Macedonia

I find it amusing that you care for something as petty as a claim to a name rather than a claim to land. There is no doubt that the modern Macedonians have absolutely nothing to do with their ancient counterparts, but I imagine they named the country after the region rather than the people who used to inhabit it.

The fuck does a language have to do with your blood. Nigger do you think speaking english makes you a Brit??


Alexanders mom was greek, and no one denies macedonians occasionally interbred with greeks. The point is that the two people were seperate enough to call it interbreeding in the first place.

You are being irrational.

It's a gypsy-tier love charm written in a unique doric-like sub-dialect, something an absolute pleb would write. The populous' tongue was definitely a subgroup of a subgroup of Greeks, namely the Northwestern dialects, like Doric and Hepirot, not simply related to Greek.


Sorry but not all "Empires" of antiquity invited Tyrone and Ahmed in their homeland to fuck their daughters, bongspawn. Pre-colonial linguistic affinities are pretty solidly correlated to genetic ones.

>The point is that the two people were seperate enough to call it interbreeding

Even if you were actually quoting someone a Spartan marrying an Athenean was still "interbreeding".

> Ancient Greeks definitely did not consider Macedonians to be Greek.

Then they would not let them participate in every Olympic game after Perdicas demonstrated his origins. The downright fallacious " did not consider Macedonians to be Greek" claim refereed to their semi barbaric costumes, primitive form of monarchy and later political grudges after the Macedonian kings bent the knee to the Achaeminids.

>solidly correlated to genetic ones.

No, while languages and cultures travelled genetics mostly didn't move, especially after in Europe after the migration period. Which means of course that most "Turks" are in fact Greek and Anatolian native converts LARPing as the descendants of Altaic nomads.

Not exactly suprising when you consider that 50000 nomads took over a territory populated by a million or two people.

>Now I have an excuse to post this.

Okay, I'll bite: aside from the cringe marketing for this particular model, is there anything fundamentally wrong with the 1911 platform for 10mm?


>Yeah, I have PTSD.

As a doctor, I would recommend that anyone experiencing PTSD strongly consider propranolol adjunctive therapy. Propranolol is a safe, inexpensive drug that limits the maximum rate the heart can beat and also suppresses certain physiological effects like tremors. In non-PTSD patient populations we use propranolol primarily for tremor suppression, sometimes for high blood pressure, occasionally for stage fright, or excessive sweating.

The idea with this therapy is that by using propranolol one suppresses the fight or flight response that serves to reinforce the PTSD memories. It also allows calmer contemplation of said distressing memories. It makes sense: it's easier to consider all of these things if your heart isn't racing, no shakes, no cold sweat. If the therapy is successful, eventually the PTSD trigger is extinguished because it is no longer constantly reinforced by the brain and "stored fresh" as traumatic memory over and over. Finally, no one gets addicted to propranolol, as there is no high associated with it—again, all it does is serve as a "rev limiter" for your heart and your sympathetic autonomic responses.

As a tangent, the "extinguishment of stimulus reinforcement" approach also serves as the basis for the Sinclair method of treating alcoholism (albeit with a different, also relatively innocuous and inexpensive drug). If anyone is having difficulty with alcoholism I would suggest investigating the Sinclair method.

Your local doctor probably won't suggest these things. They aren't mainstream.

>I read propanolol and thought you were joking but it seems legit.

It definitely is. I don't treat ptsd patients myself but I have talked with several VA psychiatrists who have used it to good effect, and they also directed me to some of the published research on the therapy. It's not well known, even within the VA system. I like the approach because it seems quite promising, makes sense in terms of how it works, is very nontoxic/benign, and also because so many of our current standard approaches to help with PTSD are shit in terms of efficacy.

Switching gears, the Sinclair method for alcoholism uses a different drug, naltrexone, and patients continue to drink alcohol. There are no bad effects of the drug. That is different than some of the rather ineffective old therapies, with drugs designed to make patients feel sick if they drank. "Here, patient, I want you to take this drug that will make you vomit if you drink alcohol. Be sure to take it every day now, mmkay?" Instead the naltrexone effectively eliminates the positive reward reinforcement from consuming alcohol. Eventually, the compulsive urge to drink becomes extinguished because the alcohol doesn't give any "happy" reinforcement (yeah, you can obviously still get drunk from the alcohol while taking naltrexone). Alcohol becomes "meh" for the alcoholic.

Research is being done to do the same with tobacco. Varenicline (aka Chantix) operates in this type of "extinguishment" mechanism but has certain unpleasant side effects for some people.

They did. That is why god Phobos exists, and which is why he comes to mark people in the battlefield gleefully and greedily. And, which is also why not that many records of the most intense and awful battles seem to exist. People that fought weren't particularly enthusiastic to talk about that stuff, and thus not all that much got written down and even fewer of those records survive.

Most battles weren't all that brutal affairs, atleast in the Hellenic world during classical era, with casualties being somewhere in 5% range usually.

in my experience ptsd is 85% newly learned survival instincts that absolutely do not apply to "civilized society" so when someone slams a car door and you react by turning to, clinging to cover and clawing at your back for a non-existent rifle. It kinda sucks. You get that "ok shits going kinetic" adrenaline rush but that is quickly answered with the realization that the situation is absolutely not kinetic, at all, but the adrenaline is still there, and an unnecessary adrenaline rush really doesnt feel nice. Add to that everyone around you looking at you like you are a lunatic because they have zero reference for what just happened, and you are going to have a bad time.

Flashbacks and such happen but compared to the frequency of what I described above such is only 10-15% of ptsd. You learn how to deal with it over time. My biggest advice would be stay away from booze, I drowned myself for years… it is wholly counter productive.
