    I just want to tell you to hang in there. You are not alone out here. I am struggling too, but I just keep fighting. Every day is a fight for me, but I want to live. I was an Army wife for 20 years, so I know the military life in itself is stressful and I wan't active duty.

    Go to the VA, they should help you with this. You are a war veteran, and I am seeing on TV that here where I am they are using a hyperbaric chamber to help with PTSD with soldiers.

    Don't give up, get tough. You were tough enough to handle the Army for 14 years. You are tough enough to beat this. Reach out, ask for help. You can talk to me if you like. I am not a counselor or anything like that, but I do know it helps to talk and journaling is also a good way to cope.
