Re: Blue Button Initiative

I went to the VA website and it looks like it is mostly self-reporting, meaning the veteran is responsible for the upkeep of the record so you have greater control over at least a portion of that record. Reminds me of an online site for storage of records. I could be off but that was my first impres...

Re: OIF

redfish, Amen!! This morning, my daughter and I were talking about an essay she is writing for English. The topic is "We are: Because they were....." She started her essay with "We are FREE, because they were willing to lay down their lives for us." Pretty powerful words coming from a 13 year old gi...

Re: Basrah Highway.

I am so glad that you and your wife are working on this together. It makes all the difference when the team is working towards the same goal.
It sounds like your wife has a lot of "patients"!! (LOL...could not resist)
You and your wife are so blessed to have found each other.

Re: VA Care and Activity

Please remember that you did not create this chaos.... you are left to deal with the aftermath just like all of us friends and family.

Be patient and forgiving of yourself. Remind yourself what you have done right in the last 20 years.

Re: Basrah Highway.

Oh my goodness, that is the first thing I ask my husband... Did you take your medicine?? I usually already know the answer because I can tell a diff even if he misses just 1 day. But he also attends AA meetings 3-4 times a week and if he misses a few, it is almost as bad as missing his meds. The key...

Re: VA Care and Activity

That info about PTSD resurfacing after 20 yrs is an incredibly important tidbit. I will share that with my family. It is difficult for some to understand why now these symptoms are causing such issues.

Thanks for sharing.....

Re: Basrah Highway.

One thing that helps me is to remember that I am usually not the target or even the catalyst of the rages. When my husband chooses to rant, nowadays I usually just leave the room. He is angry momentarily, but he calms, and begins to think over what set him off. 9 out 0f 10 times it is a work thing o...

Re: re: va help

Many of the medications to treat anxiety, depression and chronic pain can affect the memory. It is frustrating but somedays in our house we have to make a choice: being able to remember everything or treat the pain. Before I knew that the medications were responsible for some of my "forgetter-ness" ...

Re: re: va help

lil sis,

When I called the VA yesterday, they told me that they were not doing spouse exams anymore.

Re: Near Fratricide

haze, Do you mind if I ask which VA hospital you go to? I am in KY also and just wondered if you were in the same area as us? And how did your visit go? I do agree that sometimes you do have to get nasty to be taken seriously and it is exhausting to have to fight for every little thing. Do you have ...
