Re: re: va help

VA in Manila only has a psychologist. I will go to a civilian shrink again. Hoping i can find an anti depressant with less sexual side affects. My wife and I want to have kids. The last antidepressant i was on i couldn't orgasm, or at the best it took god awful long time.

Re: Basrah Highway.

DW, that is funny but all too familiar. My wife had to start meds to deal with me. Then we had problems getting her meds right and then mine went outta whack. Round and round, back and forth.

Re: re: va help

I talked to the DAV last night philippine time and found out that only certain orgs have a service rep here. So it looks like its going to be American legion since as far as i know its the only one that has a service officer here.


Hope the guy knows what he's doing :).
