A talk with Jason Smiley about PTSD, music, yoga, tattoos and life. Editor's note:
When I asked if there is a cure for PTSD and Jason said no and would like to correct that. "There is no single thing that cures it. I gave an answer about a pie and how one should investigate all the different therapies. Although one never gets rid of the actual trauma, technically you can get rid of the stress disorder. I think I was also answering from the perspective of a patient in the VA health care system, where it is unlikely that you will get rid of either. Anyway through various modalities of therapy it is technically possible to rid oneself on the stress disorder, not the actual traumatic event. That part never goes away."
