    Am i supposed to be normal?
    As a vet how am i supposed to come home and be a normal family man?
    The support system is shit..the benefits are shit...Why couldn't they leave me where i was doing what i was good at.
    This isn't about attention ..or special treatment...
    I don't participate in Veterans day at work...or jump the line at the airport.
    I am fucked up ..i am not normal...but everyone wants me to be.
    It makes me sick the way this country treats there vets.
    Sorry drucken fucking rant over.

    It's okay. See if you can get some counseling at the VA. Support networks help as well.

    It's just something we need to swallow and keep on rucking. It may subside a bit with time a bit, overall we just need to learn to live with it. Milk the GI Bill, use the VA home loan and try to enjoy life. It's something our fallen brothers can't do.

    Aw, Crash, I'm sorry :console:
    I agree with lovetalkradio. Find someone to talk to.

    In the meantime, you know you can always come here and vent. The Shed is the best free therapy around. :hug:

    Thank you for your service. I mean that sincerely.

    You have been out a lot longer than me, 2001 to 2009 for myself. Maybe counseling or medication might help. No shame in either, you went through something too harsh to swallow. Seek help bro, you have been out too long to be suffering like this.

    Talk to your wife. She can help more than you give her credit for. And step away
    from the news. That can make you crazy right there.

    I am not sure you are really looking for solutions from strangers....my instinct says that your post was about expressing your understandable frustration...the only thing that came to mind, however, that was different than what has already been posted is to suggest reaching out to those folks with whom you actually served...not just the well-intentioned but antiseptic folks at the VA...

    Not for nothin' but sounds like you may have a touch of PTSD. Nothing wrong with that, but you should get ck'd out. And thanks for your service.
