The symptoms that Dave suffers from prevent him from living a normal life. Dave has been diagnosed with TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). These injuries were sustained while serving our country in Afgahistan and being struck by the blast of an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). Some of the symptoms that Dave suffers from are: headaches, vomiting, memory loss, nightmares and and intense irritability. Dave deserves the opportunity to heal from these injuries and try to get back to a sense of normalcy with his family.
