What NOT to Say to Someone with PTSD

suck it up!
I get nightmares too…
it’s all in the past…
you seem okay to me…
only soldiers get that…
what’s the worst thing you’ve ever seen?
be a man!
have a beer and take your mind off it…
just forget about it…
it could be worse…
you need to move on…
what gave you PTSD?
memories always fade…
