I didn't know that you were dealing with PTSD & the nightmares as well as recovering from the physical injuries...although after what you've been through, it doesn't surprise me. I just hope you keep the faith and "keep on keeping on"! (Besides, I still have a .357 with yer name on it!)

Hang in there Lone, I'm here for ya if you need anything!

Hi B. Somm, good to see you again. I'm really sorry to hear about your friend.

Yes, I definitely have PTSD and nightmares. Right now the nightmares own me. I think they have jockeys and trainers. The only good thing about them is that most of them are a recurring theme and my shrink is convinced she knows what's causing them. So if I can deal with one issue, and I'm trying to, then I'll be able to send at least some of those nags to the glue factory.

The hard part is accepting and coming to terms with what happened. I'm not doing well in that area, in part because the constant nightmares have my resolve weakened so much.


"keep on keeping on"! I'm doing just that one day at a time.

Not just people I know in RL, but you people here. So many of you that I want to meet now to thank in person for the prayers and support. I won't be able to do that if I give up now.



Whatever it takes you stop even thinking of giving up!











Okie is pretty smart isn't he? And he's got to be one of the nicest people on the planet. So are you. Silent_Runner is a pretty good friend. But she actually does have needles and isn't afraid to use them. She's also jerked a knot in my ass a few times in the last couple months. I figured I needed/deserved it.

You know, she would make a good designated driver......

And I'll jerk plenty more knots if I think you need them!




Designated driver, eh?
You'd best stay for now!

I wish you the best and hope that your shrink is right on the root cause! ("Knowing is half the battle"...so they say! ) Besides, no one needs extra 'nags' in their lives!

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.

This is ecellent advice for anyone who is fighting depression. Just fight you battle one day at a time. Make your trip one step at a time.

One day you wil start to feel better or reach the end of the long journey.


Wolfe, you'd better still be heeding to this one.

LW, like we said 1 second, 1 minute, 1 hour at a time, will turn into days, of you feeling better.

Here are some for you.

Hope you are having a much better day today, sweetie.
