Someone to talk to


This is my very first post. I really am just hoping to find someone on here that has had or is having the same or similar problems I am having. I need someone to talk to about them as I am not ready to let a psych doc get into my head. I have been out of the service for some time now (7 years), and my obsession with survival has taken shape in just about everything that I do. I relate it to everything, where I am willing to go, what I am willing to do, even spending money. I literally have anxiety about spending money on anything that is not necessary.

Second Firsts: A Unique Resource for Veterans


Hi All,

Laughter the best medicine


My son showed me this program. It is hysterical. The guy is a magician, but instead of doing an outright magic act, he incorporates his magic into everyday situations. And then gives completely idiotic "explanations" of how these impossible things happen to the people who are treating these things as if they were real. Very creative, very well done, and has me laughing until tears run down my face.
