My advice to you
Every person in your life who loves you and cares about you wants you to take that first step. They want you to get your life back. It’s not easy. Not one Veteran on this site would tell you that. But every one of them say it’s the best thing they ever did. Don’t isolate yourself. Don’t ever feel like you’re in this alone. Hundreds of people are waiting to help you. You can enjoy being around your friends and family again. You can sleep well again. You can feel safe in the world again. Call your local VA. You can turn your life around.
I strongly encourage Veterans to get signed up and give it a try - Dr. Martha Schmitz, Clinical Psychologist
