    It's called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. Lots of information online regarding it. Here's Wikipedia's version: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posttra...tress_disorder

    Today we went on the hill, same place as we did last year. I remember the last lap well "Go Ghost Go".

    I've done a lot of grieving over the last year. This Sunday when we go to our usual seats in Section 3, I will bring extra Kleenex for the introduction and memorials.

    Being a long time air race fan, I have paid my respects in my own way to all that died that September day.

    But rest assured, I will joining every one, including the spirits of all the friends/family/fellow fans that we lost in giving a big cheer when the engines start and we have the Sunday finals.

    Good article. A few factual errors, but nicely done by the reporter. Thanks for sharing!

    I used a PTSD guy after last year.

    I think he might be refering to rapid eye movement desensitization.

    For me, it was very helpful. And for several others too.
