As for symptoms, he has joint pain,chronic fatigue, headaches, irritable bowel, chemical sensitivities, insomnia, frequent infections (finally had tonsils removed 2 yrs ago).

Re: Near Fratricide

History does repeat but each generation seems to get a little bit wiser and more assertive, so keep on talking, they have to listen. I believe some of the politicians have had kids or relatives who have served and are seeing the effects firsthand, so are starting to take more notice.

Re: VA Care and Activity

2 yrs ago, he woould not even think about going to VA. But I asked his Vietnam Vet dad to speak to him and after that, he was more open. And yes he has asked me to make sure I can come with him to his appointments, so I am very encouraged by that. I think it will be great to hear what he has to say ...

Re: VA Care and Activity

It's amazing when I read your posts because you are describing my hubby. The sensory overload issues, and the difficulty with large crowds are huge stressors for him. Even our 3 children are overwhelming to him at times. Of course, it's me and our 3 teenage girls, I think any man might need to hiber...

Re: Leaving/losing jobs due to temper

This is the most helpful encouraging site I have ever found in all my years of searching. Thanks for the info on the Service Officer. I will make that a top priority, so that he is represented.

Re: Leaving/losing jobs due to temper

FA1SGret,

I need to ask a dumb question.

Is "service officer" someone that is assigned through the VA or are you referring to a rep from the American Legion, VFW, or other organization of that nature?

Re: 19 years ago Feb 23-25 Desert Storm G-day began

Redfish, My husband is a vet of the Gulf War and is just now seeking help from the VA for physical and emotional illness. I believe he feels much the same as you on his experiences in the region, and I want to thank you for your honesty on this site. Your candor and willingness to share helped me to...
