Justin, I just sent you a note asking to be a friend but forgot to tell you my name. I'm Jim from Spokane. I was in Nam in '65 and '66. Most of us combat vets suffer from some degree of PTSD. There are many factors involved, but I know, from 45 years of experience, that it doesn't make any difference how big and tough we think we are we don't just come home from war and be who we were before we left. Our minds don't work that way. If you are still on active duty you can go to the Chaplain at either Ft. Lewis or McChord AFB and request "The Combat Trauma Healing Manual" put out by Military Ministry. They can also get you in touch with a mentoring group to go through the manual. Hope this helpful. In His Service, Jim
I'm happy to hear you have been involved with your local support groups. Yes, I know Craig Sicilia and think he does a great job of helping brain injury survivors. Thank you for your involvement with the group in Spokane. If I can be of assistance to you or Craig, feel free to let me know.
My name is Valerie Wootton and I'm the Support Group Coordinator for the Brain Injury Association of Washington. I see you list your location as being Seattle. Do you attend any of the BIA-WA support groups in the Seattle area? If not, I'd like to invite you to attend one. There is a listing of all of the support groups in Washington at www.biawa.org/support.htm or you can contact me and I will help you find the closest one to where you live.
