Cue the 2009 LW HomeBrew Tour! How's Raspberry Imperial Stout sound? Add Weber grill, steaks, and cozy wooded back yard, and toddlers bouncing off each other for entertainment... You know, the East Coast is pretty much on the way to anywhere when you're on the way home, last time I checked!

Real warriors never think anything they do in war is that special. It's just doing the job. Years later someone might say something that triggers the "OMG, I did that!?!", and you finally have to accept the fact that what you did may just have been something a little out of the ordinary. But, still, you shrug and say, "Shucks, I was just doing what I needed to do." It took 40 years for someone to convince me. I just say, "Well, I guess I was really crazy back then."

Let me know if I can do anything for you.

XOXOXO

Actually Russ it's brought a tear to my eye several times over. This last several weeks have been the worst for me in terms of the nightmares and the demons in my head. It's gotted to the point I've just wanted to give up sometimes. I don't know how okie knew, but somehow he did and started this thread when I needed the moral support and prayers more than ever. You people have been a real blessing to me.

I look forward to being able to meet you. That would be an absolutely great day for me.

Take care and stay safe.









Just kidding Buki192327. Lone_Wolfe and I have been real world friends for almost 20 years. If I do stick a needle in her it would contain something to help her, never to hurt her.

I'll even give her guns back someday. That is after I torment Zombie Steve with my nice shiney Python.

And that's hard. I had issues like that for years and had to go almost 10 years to get past some of it...and sometimes it creeps right back in. Some it will always be there. It will never go away.

This is sometimes the worst of injuries.

do you have a stuffed ani mal or something to snuggle with over there? I know it sounds childish, but it really helped me for some reason....I've got my lil stuffed dog that was given to me when I was about 2...still sleep with her every now and then when I'm having a bad night....if you don't have anything over there, send me your APO and I'll find something for you....

You know, it may sound silly, but whatever it takes to get you through the dark times... For me, after the attack many years ago that ultimately led to my decision to carry a firearm, the worst of the nightmares lasted over a year. At the darkest times, when I couldn't sleep, and I reacted as if any person behind me was about to stick a knife in my back, my saving mantra was "You can't let them win." I'd say that over and over to myself, and just keep fighting it until the next day, and then the next day, and then the next...

I wish I could just give you a great big hug

I *promise* you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, though it may be a hard slog... Just keep fighting, giving yourself just one more day. That's the only battle you have to win- one more day.

You keep doing that, every damn day, and you *will* come out the other side in one piece.

That okie dude, is a pretty smart fella!!

LW, sweetie, you CANNNOT GIVE UP!!! If you give up, you will not be able to go on tour. I would not be able to give you the that I owe you, okie would not be able to give you the that he owes you, and you would miss out on all of the free beer. Sweetie, there are a lot of people that want to meet you and THANK YOU, personally for what you have done, for us. YOU keep your spirits up, and know that a lot of us are praying for your continued recovery, safety and well being, and will continue to do so.

LW, you have been a real blessing for us. Prayers for you and all of your brothers and sisters in arms.

Silent_Runner, I figured from some of the posts, that you 2 were real good friends. I knew that you would never do anything to hurt Lone_Wolfe. You 2 remind me of myself and a real good friend (old WWII vet), close to 40 years. We jab the needle at each other, just to keep each other going. It is so great when friends can do that.

I just want to know, who is going to chaffeur LW around the country, when she goes on her tour?

Lone_Wolfe, when you start feeling that way, you need to stop thinking that and think about all the people that care about you. You are more than just another stranger on the Internet to me. Knowing that you're there and suffering for people like myself breaks my heart. I'm glad Okie started this thread and hope that it helps you cope with what you're going through. Please, never give up!
