I'm a US Air Force combat veteran. I brought PTSD home from the Persian Gulf War. I'm also a hacker.

This is the same form the Veterans Hospitals use in mental health clinics to measure PTSD symptom levels.

My vsrsion of the form includes space to type a short description of situations and emotions that go along with each of the 17 questions. I'm using the Alchemy API to do emotion analysis on the written responses, which gives scores on anger, disgust, fear, joy, and sadness. Hopefully this gives a better picture of what a veteran is feeling than only the standard questions.

I finally think I'm getting my head wrapped around promises in JavaScript.

I'd love to see the VA adopt something like this if it proves to be useful for treating PTSD.
