    Time to come out...sorta

    I've had two bouts with PTSD since my time in Kuwait during DS1. The first was treated and went away. But a little know cause brought about a reoccurrence about 3 years ago. Treated and I thought. Several months ago I started feeling weird again, talk to my doc and back on limited meds. Well I still freak out now and then...hands shake, always depressed and panicky. Called my doc this morning through the service. Pharmacy gave me the wrong drug. That explains my wacko behavior. Costco has the right script now and I should be back to normal tomorrow, my usual happy cheery self!
    I seem to remember, but not totally having been a little grumpy in the last few weeks. If that is the case and anyone here was apologies and I ask forgiveness. Gotta keep the family together!

    Jim, no problems here. Thank you for your service and my freedoms you fought for. I was in partnership on a herd of Shorthorn cows with a man that fought in WW II. Once a year or so he would need to go back for "reprogramming" as his wife and family called it. He was a pipe smoker and every barn door had a coffee can nailed on the wall sideways and he would put his pipe in there before entering the barn. If when walking around the farm if you started seeing pipes laying around he was starting a down hill slide. It was something we started realizing and thus he would go in earlier with less trouble.

    I am sorry for your troubles, he dealt with this for many years and was a wonderful mentor to me on the cattle business. I pray for you that you also will find peace and maybe a couple of quirks that let you know earlier when things aren't going as well.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Haven't noticed a thing. You are undergoing a lot of change right now, which is never easy.

    Just let me know what I can do to help! And don't be shy about asking.

    Jim, Glad you are back on track. It's no fun when the pharmacy passes out the wrong stuff and it's a good thing the error was discovered before something bad happened.

    Heh...I just thought you didn't like me anymore.

    Seriously, I've not seen anything that couldn't be written off to stress from moving and other changes going on...had some of that myself here lately. As others here have said, we've got your back, bud.

    Glad you got the meds worked out.
    My son has PTSD from Iraq and I know it can be devastating at times. The VA is doing a good job helping him out.
