I am asked at times what I do for a liveing. And I tell them that I am a Disabled Veteran. Then people want to know if I was injured in a war.
I was injured in a training Extersize and damaged my hands.
That is a part of my disablity . But I also have PTSD fron being raped by an E-7
People do not see the mental injurys. And do not understand the angush of liveing with PTSD . Sometimes I just want to say it is none of your busness .
Because until you have lived with the nightmares and panic attacks you will neaver understand

"This is especially true for the soldiers that returned from giving the ultimate sacrifice to our societies by going and serving in our armed forces, but then returned with a very real injury that cannot be seen only to find out that the resources available to them are minimal at best."

This is a small part of my paper that I'm writing in university, some of us have recognized the need and we are working to try and change things.

Stay strong
Mike

Mike, I was assualted by a shipmate a long time ago but this wqs well before don;t ask/don't tell or any other decent and civil way of handling these traumatic and matters.I anguished before reporting the incident for fear of being judged. The Navy resonded by discharging us both with OTH's.

I am new to this form but in the short time that I have been registered it has helped me more than any half witted attempt at by well meaning but not well equipped therapist.

I will keep u in my, prayers and please stick with this
