Help from any who understand the VA: ( If anyone comes close to understanding)
I'm 60% service connected Army veteran. I've contacted the VA before about this but here they are doing it again. The VA is charging my own medical insurance for appointments and prescriptions. I understand that the VA must do this according to the law but read that this stops once a veteran is 50% and higher.
Who would I contact to stop this? I believe that I didn't include my new insurance when I started my...
Okay, if you have read any of my previous posts you probably have the feeling I'm a nut job. Previously me and the wife had issues because she found it okay for her to smoke weed to ease her back pain but would not allow me to drink to take my edge off. The reason I could not smoke weed was in fear of me losing my job. Well that is the past I have been put into a position where I no longer have to worry about being drug tested at work. So me and her smoked were together. And this was the...
Where to begin, I'm still partially in denial about my diagnosis. I left active duty in June and returned home with my wife, my wonderful wife. It's been rocky since I've been back from afghan. It wasn't bad over there, in fact I miss it. There was plenty of action, which I might miss most. However the lack of sleep( such as tonight) the depression, the anxiety and possibly some deeper seeded issues I'm not aware of have led to my marriage being described as rocky, if not dangling. She told...
I say again, WTF? Time to rant a bit because you folks will not hold it against me for long, if at all.

So, as part of my "new" position at the service center, me and my counterparts are supposed to do a 40 hour course to get a Nebraska Peer-to-Peer Support Certification.
OK. Fine. No problem. One more useless certification that I will never use, never need and will be one more line on my resume'. Great.
Training I can...
A buddy shared this, I wasn't special ops and we had to take this shit every day.
I don't want to sound any triggers but did anyone catch the firefight the cops had with that little twirp that killed 5 Marines? The sound of the firefight surprised me. Pop after pop. Nothing like a real firefight but enough to start setting me off. I kept waiting for a .30 cal to start burping and a grenade or two blow.
I do not miss that shit. My prayers to the families....
On mornings like this I wake pissed off at the world, and don't give a rat's ass about much of anything. I've learned over the years that I will have mornings like this no matter how well I handle my post traumatic stess.
I realize I'm stuck with this shit through no fault of my own and the anger builds. I want to hold someone responsible for putting me in this situation. I ask myself. "Don't I deserve some justice?"
As I sit on the edge of the bed I force myself to admit that those...

I'm really needing an outsiders input on a problem me and the wife are having. So here it goes. All of the medication I have been prescribed has not worked for me. I would love to use medical marijuana as a treatment but can not due to it not being legalized in our state. I do not go ahead and smoke for fear of being drug tested at work. My wife uses it for migraines and back pain it works great for her and I am glad that it helps. Now I do feel jealous because that medicine would do...
