Great article, I wrote a similar one on my blog at http://john-nevarez.blogspot.com/
The LORD helped me a great deal. But some Veterans think that they don't need The LORD. So what can they do? Well, they can hide their _____ ,take medication (which kills). They can get help (therapy), but these are Veterans; they " Never Accept Defeat."
So you have: a hard head Vet, that's independent (without GOD), hides their true feelings, takes medication (which HURTS them internally, mentally,(some) financially and physically), WILL not ask for help. (therapy says "whatever you suffer from, for you; IT will have to get worse before IT gets better"),
What do you do? how can you get OUR WARRIORS to ask for help. Most just ignore and drink it all away.
Well, that's where I said "NO MORE FOR ME"- Pedro H.
I called the hotline that helped me (asked for help), I almost have a minor in PSY from the UA ("I will never quit"-I am fighting from all sides ,PTSD will not win ), I go to all the therapy the VA and Military want to put me in (continue therapy).
BUT the only medication I'm on is Cannabis (long story, short- I had a soldier with identical diagnoses as I had after our Deployment, he died in the barracks from the mixing of the medications I had to take, but didn't)
Like I said in the beginning, The LORD protected me while in FOB Loyalty, and helps me fight the 'demons' and allows me to medicate with a plant from the earth, WITH THE SIDE EFFECT of the munchies!
The 420 Social Club is my VFW, but rather than swapping stories while drinking, I swap stories while passing. LOVE YOU ALL,
GOD BLESS TUCSON WEEKLY, NICK MEYERS, 420 SOCIAL CLUB, and YOU Tucson (my Hometown)
PS. Want to swap stories or hear some more, come on down the CLUB is on 4th ave, see you there!
So getting high is the answer to PTSD? I doubt if there is any real evidence that THC if effective treatment for PTSD however, now that marijuana is big business I am sure that it will be pushed to the public as a panacea for whatever ails you.
They should stay in their own country and fight the islamist extremists.
Thank God for the election result and that we still have our guns! Why? so nothing like that happens here *.*
As usual, you are correct Peabo.
Norm Peterson and I certainly did stink up this place. After some soul searching and accepting actual reality instead of my own self made reality, I have come to terms with this fact.
Because of this, I want to extend my sincerest apologies to Anne. All she did was post a heartfelt comment on how this article brought a little sunshine to her day. I read this and I couldn't resist adding some rain to that afternoon forecast. I tend to do obnoxious things like this when I include a few gin and tonics with my lunch. I'm just glad that I didn't come across this post during one of my nights with the other ladies from the Bingo Club after attending a Wild Boyz show! Between all of the alcohol I consume and the hundreds of dollars I stuff in those beefcake filled Speedos, the Troll inside me is REALLY awakened at that point.
To recap: Anne, I am truly sorry for raining on your parade. It was a terrible thing to do and I truly feel awful for doing it.
Peabo, I will also extend an apology to you for the behavior which Sam Malone and I exhibited here. It was childish and demeaning to anyone that actually took the time to read it.
I am truly ashamed for my behavior. Please forgive me.
I don't want or need an apology from you. You should apologize to Anne, who made a kind, gracious comment on an article that moved her, only to have you and some moron calling himself Cliff Claven stink up the place. Does that make you feel superior?
You really can't help yourself can you? Personal attacks are not acceptable per the comment guidelines , yet you continue to dish them out. My apology was to the others that had to endure your bitter ranting. I still have nothing to apologize to you for. You attacked me. But you are not going to push this lady around anymore.
Apology accepted, Debra. Perhaps you'll think twice the next time you get the urge to don a halo and offer up any more pearls of wisdom. Do you really think of yourself as kind?
And Vince, I stand corrected, thirty lashes for me for misspelling Jonathan. Enjoy your bender. You're ushering in this brave new world in style.
My apologies for starting this. I just never thought somebody like Mr Peabo would make a personal attack on me. The Weekly used to have kind people posting kind things. They sure are changing.
That's a bit harsh. I think that the real goons are in the street hurting cops and damaging property.
My hands aren't "widdle" so I can't go around punching anyone.
As for happy, hell yes I'm happy. Been drunk since Tuesday night. I just trying not to rub it in too much. Who knows if promises will be kept anyway. I still remember 08 and 2012
quite vividly. I hated the smug, merciless lefties at work who rubbed it in for days. See how I am practicing "civility"? As for comedy, watching all of the TV pundits with their crybaby analysis and
condescending opinions gave me a years worth of belly laughs. They really should get over themselves. They blew it. Fire them like Fox did with Dick Morris in 2012. By the way, isn't Jonathon spelled Jonathan? Just checking. Wouldn't want you to get a
Looks like somebody is awful bitter here. You didn't want to make America great again?
Don't pull a muscle patting yourself on the back. That C- was generous. You're no Jonathon Swift. But enjoy the thumbs up. Got to get your thrills where you can.
Sorry Peabo but it seems that fooling the left is not only funny, but easier than I thought. Just look at the thumbs up I got from my first post. And the media said the uneducated voted for Trump. Uh, 'fraid not.
And M.T.? C-
If you goons are going to run things, you better get your comedy chops down better than the weak tea you're serving up.
Don't worry about me, Vinnie. I'm good. The country will survive. But I can't figure out why you goons aren't happier. I mean, come on, you got everything you wanted. Where's the joy? Were's the relief? All I see is more fear and anger. Just makes you wanna ball up your widdle hands and punch something, don't it?
You don't sound like a person who has been set free.
As for bigotry, read the hacked DNC e-mails.
As for sexual assault. ever hear of Bill Clinton.?
Anti-Semitism is a ridiculous stretch. unless you are referring to the DNC trashing of Bernie.
You sound a bit angry. Hurts a bit doesn't it? At least you are not out there with the Soros-rent-a-mobs.
Nice job with all those election taunts and preachy predictions.
Maybe it's time to broaden your horizons beyond Nate Silver and the
other paid party hack pollsters next time you talk trash.
Come on you guys we can't keep this up. Donald Trump needs to see what is happening to our country and step down, so that Hillary can be the President. I think if the rioters promise to stop he would do it. We won't know until we try. Or maybe President Obama could just stay in office for the first four years and then let Hillary be appointed to finish his second term. The US Constitution was expected to be changed much more often than we have changed it. This looks like a good time. Even my sociology prof agrees with me.
Spare me. Your holier-than-thou condescension is as ridiculous as it is nauseating. Have a good time on that higher ground of yours while it lasts, the truth will eventually set you free.
Sorry Mr Peabo, but this election proved one thing. Americans are sick and tired of the accusations and name calling trying to keep people from saying what they believe. In most cases those making the claims are actually the ones doing it. You need to look no further than the Clinton Foundation and their lies and fraudulent schemes. But I have allowed you that space. Please do the same.
How sanctimonious of you, Debra. As far as being known by the company that you keep, does that mean you approve of antisemitism, bigotry, and sexual assault? If not, you might want to do a little looking around yourself, it seems like you've got your head in the sand.
