I was a drunk 18 year old soldier on Labor day of 1977 When I was raped by SFC E.H. I do not know where he may be today. Dead for all I know.

I'm sorry that ever happened to you!
I'd hate labor day too!
For me, it was a movie that was playing in the background the whole time.
Sucks.
Hang in there! And thank you for serving our country!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about that. This time of year is bound to be triggering and painful. I am glad you came here to talk about it and reach out.

I agree with Onesimus, thanks for your service! May you find peace and healing, fellow survivor.

I am so sorry to hear what happened to you. I can only imagine what comes back to you on a day that is so widely celebrated--it can only remind you of what happened to you.

Stay strong and seek support. We are here for you.

Sorry man. I hate all holidays - reminds me of how I had no friends and felt so isolated for 20 plus years.

The weekend will be over soon.

Michael,

Don't be sorry. I think you aren't the only one who's done stuff like that here :-) At least you reached out for support at the same time. I hope you found some and that you are doing better. It was kind of nice for me to see someone else who didn't like a holiday.

Michael I don't think anyone on here would misconstrue your sharing of past struggles with a promotion for maladaptive behaviors. What happened to you was inexcusable, horrible, and I am sorry you had to go through it especially as a member of the armed forces. Like Rich said most of us here have engaged in addictive and/or compulsive behaviors at some point in our past but the most important thing is we are all trying to move on with our recovery, help each other out with present day struggles, and eventually overcome the trauma that originally led us to those self-destructive behaviors. Finally, SFC E.H. and those like him ought to be brought to the drumhead, dishonorably discharged, and thrown into military prison. In my angrier moments I might suggest summary execution by firing squad but I am feeling relatively magnanimous this afternoon : P
