I don't remember what it feels like, it's been so long. My unconcious state here is far from sleep and opposite of restful. I run as far as I can from having to go through it but "they" eventually get me again.

I wonder if it's different for you guys compared to what my friends discribe. So I'm asking what it's like to feel rested and to look forward to it. Yet another strange question from me I guess.

P.S. Please don't call my stuff a nightmare.

I like your Questions . They are a thinking mans question.
if you are a former Jarhead . are the problems "Sevice Connected"
The VA has treatment. And if being in the military has damaged you in some way . You may be entiled to a service conected rateing .
I do not claim to understand your problem . Because your problem are unique to you. But I may have experenced a simular problem and be able to give an insite as to my experence.
I have had to deal with this shit for 30 years It sucks
I wish that I could tell that it gets better with time . it doesnt. But there are "Tools" that you can learn to use to help in the bad times.
I take Doxipin to help me sleep. But I dont know what to say about resting

I'm 100% service connected from the military because of rape and torture as a kid, which isn't the easiest to explain. I've done every treatment, med, and testing available with no answers or relief. It's been over 10 years since this started and I've been stuck since. Nothing makes it easier to go through, the physical toll on me has to be worse than the original abuse.
