Im all but done with the VA, iv decided to move on, the treatment is just about non excistint, and seems to have broken down over the past couple of years. It's a running joke in our house to even mention the VA. I finnally got a primary care provider after two years, seen him the other week,, he suggested i could buy my own medicine for my IBS,lol so far all of my medications are expired, i have no test strips left (DIABETIC) and been waiting for my CAPAP machine for over a year now after beeing aproved. But good luck Redfish, but be carfull with new medication. Im going to start using the walk in clinics, at least ill know where my medical records are.

Hope all's well Haze, the VA is a comlpicated system, it's a long road to haul, God be with you. I can't deal with the system anymore. Im wore out from the red tape.

Ah, hell Tricky, I wish you could go but I understand. I don't think I'll ever come to terms with the war. It all came back on me two years ago. I've been hiding from it with alcohol and then work. Now I'm learning to cope. I completely understand. Some day I'd like to get together though. You know I'm always hoping the best for you. I'll call ya soon bro.

trick, i understand you not coming, i'm getting a little nervous, but i'm following through with it. wife is planning on taking pics, filming it. dagger said that we could post everything on here. plus if you want i could send a copy to ya , if ya want. redfish is right, we all should get together sometime.
that war, will never be over for most of us, dealing with it day by day, at times is rough.as the old soldiers say" part of you will always be back there, when you come home from a war, part of you stays.
i'll be thinking of ya, and everybody else that could"nt make it.
always glad to hear from you. you take care of yourself, ya hear.
