My short bio:
I am a Vietnam veteran diagnosed with PTSD who uses Disney as my medication. I've been to Disney World 50 times total. Most recently for a Jodie Benson (voice of Ariel from The Little Mermaid) event on July 18th that I won tickets to. I have worked on and off for Disney 11 different times.
I'm the main participant in a documentary called Keep Moving Forward which is currently in a LIVE fundraiser on Kickstarter.

Thank you for your questions. The key to my PTSD is to keep moving forward. If you live in the past, it will consume you.
We'll be leaving this open and will be taking questions but we'll take longer to respond to them. Please be patient and in the mean time, don't forget to stop by our LIVE FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN. There are only 4 DAYS LEFT and we'd love to have the chance to be able to finish this film and make it a success with you! If you can't donate, you can HELP by SHARING the link!:
WOW. Just woke up to all of these responses and incredibly moved by your personal stories and the massive amount of support. Will try to reply as quickly as possible. Thank you to those who have learned more about the project from this and BACKED THE FILM on Kickstarter. The filmmakers have 4 DAYS LEFT and you've already made a difference and helped us get closer to reaching the goal! Only 24% LEFT TO RAISE! Thanks again, and I'll be working on replying throughout the day.
EDIT EDIT EDIT:
Questions keep pouring in. Thank you for all the words of encouragement. Your pledges to bring this film to life have gotten the Keep Moving Forward Documentary nearly 80% of the way there. We have 2 FULL DAYS to make our funding goal and bring this film to life.
