Mystery Files: Hilter - TMS in WWI

    I’m a documentary lover and they have some great biographical ones on Netflix. I recently watched the one about Hitler and what I found interesting is how they mention PTSD physiological blindness.

    Basically, he was so scared that a gas attack would blind him that he got “hysterical blindness” after surviving the gas attack.

    I found this extremely interesting. I’d recommend people check it. They basically talk about TMS, but from the WWI era.

    Mystery Files: Hilter (around 12:00 and on)

    (I’m not feeling bad for Hitler here. He’s was a very evil man. However, the TMS portion of this program is very interesting.)

    Thanks WB, I have an acquaintance who I believe had TMS/hysterical blindness about a year ago, she's now seeing again.

    Hi, Waterbearer. I'm glad you posted about Hitler. I read about him on the Internet and he sure had a lot of TMS, going back
    to his childhood. He was a certifiable nut and if only his mental state as a boy had been revealed, he may not have come to power.

    I forgot the details, but he hated humanity so he just didn't care what he did to it.

    Self-hate on a grand scale, I presume.
