| | does this sound like PTS and how can I help
My son married a girl from South America. She presents very well. After a few months of marriage, they begin to have many, many problems. Partly culture,But I believe the majority of the problems are related to PTS, but she refuses to think so and blames every one else for the problems. This young lady was kidnapped for a period of 3 months in her home country. She also has had several friends murdered before marrying my son and moving to the states.
She is very insecure. During a visit with them she chosed not to go out to dinner with her husband, before going to work, but rather stayed and watched a TV show. 2 hours later when she went to work, my son and I went out to eat. SHe called and blew up over the fact we were eating with out her. During there 2 years of marriage there seems to be major issues around July and the hoildays. Last July she accused my son of molesting her young daughter. He was removed from the home until it came back unprovenand unfounded. Over the holidays there were issues and he came home for Christmas by himself. Now this July major issues again. He told her that he wanted a divorce. She started screaming and yelling . This caused her young daughter to start crying. He went over to pick the child up. SHe ran to a neighbors and called the cops and accused him of beating her and holding a gun to her head. Needless to say he spent 24 hours in jail. There were no marks on her. Its her word against his. He was charged with a misdameaner for commuicating threats. A few days later she dropped charges. They are currently separated.
There are times when things are fine...He knows when a major issue is coming. SHe stops cleaning, she doesn't get dress, and doesn't leave the house.
Does this sound like PTS? ALthough they are separated, he would like to stay with her if she gets some help. I think to my self ..get the heck out while you still can.
