Why I didn’t ask for help right away
It can be easier to find reasons not to get help than to take the first step. Here is what some of the Veterans have said:
- I didn't know it could be treated.
- I don't have the time.
- I'll look weak.
- I never served in combat.
- I'll fix it myself.
- I can't afford the treatment.
- I'll get fired or looked over for a promotion.
When you make the choice to get help, you'll wonder why you waited so long - you'll know that getting into treatment was the best possible move for yourself and the people you love.
