Ryan Culberson decided it was time to seek help for his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through a program called Save a Warrior. According to Radar Online, Ryan realized that he needed some help before the new baby arrives. Ryan is Vicki Gunvalson's son-in-law. Her daughter,who is also Ryan's wife, is Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson. She is close to delivering her second son.
Ryan served five combat deployments in Afghanistan in the Marine services. The scene that sent viewers of the reality show, "Real Housewives of Orange County" to wondering about his mental state was when he went into a rage at the Winter Wonderland party against Lydia McLaughin's mother.
Ryan told Radar Online, “I know I’ve been painted in some not so great light in the past season and after some deep soul searching I decided to reach out and get some help with the PTSD I have been dealing with for quite awhile.”
The Save a Warrior program is set up to help Marines. It lasts for five days and it helps teach Marines suffering from PTSD on an effective way to handle stress and anxiety through meditation. During that time, Ryan will partake in a number of physical activities like horseback riding, and rock climbing.
Ryan said, "A guy I work with told me about the program he attended and it literally saved and changed his life. I’m really excited to go… I’ve known for awhile I needed something so hopefully this program is what I need.”
Do you think this will help him deal with the anxiety or should he seek another program that lasts longer than five days? We wish him the best.
