say Amryleo~ I read that your husband was oversea's...my son is also in the Army and did his tour of duty as well. My boy came back a change man.

Had your husband received any help? And how long ago since he returned? Our soldiers go through hell over there - and the real sad thing is that many of them AND their familes don't get the help they need when they return. Too often it is because THEY (the soliders) won't go, not that help is not avaialable.

No he hasn't received help.

And since he was areservist, we were far away from a military base. Had to cope all by myself. Not just the everyday stuff, the military protocol, we had no place to call, no support system no nothing...

I started a remodel of the house here, I didnt' know anything about contractors, etc. WE had already drawn up the blue prints. He wanted it done of course I didn't get it done fast enough.

We just finished the project, less than a month. He is a perfectionist. Didn[t like someo f the thing sthat were done when he wasn't around.

The job was suppose to be 6-8 monts it was more like 20 months.

Now were' in a shitload of debt.

It was horrible lost all the matresses. I didn't think I could do much more on my own

Armyangel:

I wanted to share this w/ you. When I was goin thru really dark days I heard this song. I put down the words and have leaned on it many many times thru the years. I kinda feel like it's an ol rag doll that needs restuffed sometimes.

All I Ever Have to Be by Amy Grant..

When the weight of all my dreams,
Is resting heavy on my head,
And the thoughtful words of health and hope,
Have all been nicely said..

But I'm still hurting,
Wondering if I'll ever be,
The one I think I am.

I think I am.

Then you gently re-remind me,
That you've made me from the first,
And the more I try to be the best,
The more I get the worst.

And I realize the good in me,
Is only there because of who you are.

Who you are...

And all I ever have to be,
Is what you've made me,
Any more or less would be a step,
Out of your plan.

As you daily recreate me,
Help me always keep in mind,
That I only have to do,
What I can find.

And all I ever have to be,
All I have to be,
All I ever have to be,
Is what you've made me.

our soldiers need help when they return...the brains were on overload - non-stop when they are over there.

I encouraged my son to go to the VA to get help - he is now on meds for depression...his therapist or whoever from the VA explained it like…let me think here... something about how their minds are constantly firing something off... the nerves or something in the brain {sorry I'm tired here}…and when they get back to civilian life it takes a LONG time for the brain to stop firing. I’ll asked him tomorrow what was said, but it sure made sense. I really don't think that if he wouldn't have gotten on meds we'd be having some real tough times with him right now.

Can you do some babysitting or something small to help offset the extra costs? Housecleaning pays good here in my area. like $12 per hour
