Its gotta be in the water I been feeling like that for the last three days. Guess we're all connected in some strange way.... Hang in there your not alone.... What helps me is looking at some of the pictures that I have of myself during D/S, don't know why... I guess because I left a part of me there.....

Plus anything military that's sincere especially. I used to cry everytime they sang the national anthem. Songs that sing about the military...etc

Face it guys, you're all going through menpause with me...Just kidding.

I am the same way, or was, not so mush now that I am on Prozac. It is the first med that has actually worked for me to control my emotions. I still get choked up when I see anything military or stand for the National Anthem. And boy don't I get pissed when I see someone not following protocol during the National Anthem.

I coach High School Swimming and Diving in the winter and we were at a Championship meet and the National Anthem was being played, my kids know how I feel about it but some other students, young girls were talking, gigling and eating during it. I turned just enough to give them the "stink eye" then I reamed them out afterwards with a long lecture about how I took their disrespect personally because I was a war vet. I bet they won't do that again....

Whatever happened to teaching that stuff in school? We used to start everyday with the Pledge of Allegience or the National Anthem or some other partiotic song.... What's happening to this country?

heading up to the va this morning, going for my 1st. shots in my neck, spine. hopefully this will ease up some of the pain in my back.
went the other day to physical therapy eval.... they just pissed me off, more or less called me a liar, when i told them on how much pain level i'd experienced with my back, neck. going to see about going to some place different, see if the va will let me, cause i just don't deal with people that don't believe me.
