Even though I'm new on here, I truly look forward to talking to you guys every day. I love getting to see what sorts of adventures everyone else has going on in their lives, and at times it's nice to know I'm not alone in my worries or frustrations. We all lead very different lives yet come together and have a good time talking and joking and sharing ourselves.
DB - Take care of yourself and do what you need to stay relaxed and worry free. As the wife of a Veteran who has suffered from PTSD and sought counseling, I know what an important role you play in the lives of those men. Even though at times I know you must feel broken yourself, the healing that you guide them through is something that not everyone can accomplish. You give them the chance to open up and break free from something that is so incomprehensible to the average person. I often find myself amazed at the things I know my husband has seen and done (he was a USMC scout sniper) and how he is still capable of functioning as a normal human being. I get upset even thinking about people being hurt or killed, I truly can't imagine what it is like to be on the front lines staring it in the face. Your strength and willingness to help your fellow brother are quite admirable DB, thank you for making a difference.
I have always had the saying that the very best gift you can give someone is your time. It's the one thing that you can never get back.
