Ice cream is always good.

Yea! I'm glad to hear you're doing better. How long are you supposed to be there, anyway?
So am I, thanks. I was seriously on the verge of telling my employer I couldn't do it, ship me home and I'll try to get some help there. The thought is still going through my mind, but I'm starting to think maybe I'll get a little better, or at least back to where I was in Iraq. I really need to get better than that, I still had a long way to go even before all these setbacks. They're hoping I can stay for a year or fairly close to it.

I know...it's nothing compared to the pain you have every day of your life, but it puts me in tears...and that isn't normal for me. I have a high pain tolerance, but this is kicking my butt.
Damn, I was hoping you'd have better news to share with us.

I really do understand pain being so bad all you can do is cry, I've been there a lot for 3 years now. It doesn't get any easier, as you know, and not being able to sleep only makes it worse. I'm really hoping and praying things start looking up for you soon and you get relief.

Sweetheart, Miss LG, Mangus, Miss S_R: prayers for all. Prayers for any and all who need them. Sweetheart, I have a feeling that when, not if, things go to Hell between the U.S. and Pakistan plus Iran and who knows who else, you'll be shipped out. I hope your employer avails themselves of the opportunity to take care of you by making sure you never have the need to lift anything heavier than your laptop at any time during your journey home.

Hiya!

A year? If you start going downhill you get yourself back over here.

Don't you think that's some wishful thinking on your part? You know what I do over here, do you think they're going to do away with that job? And no, they won't make travel any easier going out than it was coming in. There was nothing easy about that.

Yep, that's what they want. Truthfully I don't see being able to stay a year if this first several weeks is any indication. It's 4AM and once again I'm up because when I tried to sleep the nightmares were waiting. I'm still at the max dose of Fentanyl and eating add-ons like candy. Plus I had a breathing attack last night. Not the worst I've had by far, but painful enough. I really think when I get to the point I can travel again my doc or PA will get rid of me.

One bit of news, the person doing my physical therapy and me came up with a way that we wouldn't have to try to do my therapy in the gym, which is small, cold, and usually has someone on the bench we try to use. We're using a little outbuilding next to the clinic that I can keep as warm as I want. There's what looks like an old dentist's chair in there which is comfortable to sit back in, and I can even get out of it myself. I'm to come in about 20-30 minutes before my appointment and sit there with the heating pad on my chest. I have a key so I can come in there and sit any time I want. No one else uses the room, except for a few things stored in there. My therapist said there's a treadmill in a conex that was just taken out of the gym that he's going to try to get moved into there. There's barely room for it, but that's way better than the way we've had to do it so far.

All things considered, it seems a blessing that you have a side area you can keep as warm as you need, in a reclined chair that you can access and nobody will care how much time you take.

Maybe these elements will help you heal better.

<<< hopeful.

I hope your chest is settling down too.

They love it when I tell you off because they know I am right.

That may be wishful thinking on several of our parts but I know better then to hope for it.

I hope you do get sent home sooner rather than letting you stay in that place for a year. It does sound like they are are trying to help you though. I hope that warm therapy room does you some good.

Haha, maybe state-of-Afghani-art. Per my doc and therapist's orders I had the heat in the room set to about 80 and was waiting with the heating pad on my chest when my therapist showed up. He walked in and was wearing PT shorts and T-shirt. He asked if I minded him wearing that instead of regular uniform since it was so warm in there. I took a good look and said "No, I don't mind even one little bit. In fact, I'm enjoying the view".

Yeah, I'm not complaining about it at all. There's only 2 keys to the padlock, I have one and the person doing my therapy has one. That way I don't even have to worry about being disturbed if I'm just in there to get away from Afghani's and everyone else. Luckily the unit that has a few things stored in there doesn't mind, as long as they can get in if they need to.

I'm hopeful too.

We'll see. According to my doc I won't be shipped out unless something goes wrong, but I'm not betting the farm on that after the problems I've had even since I found out I was coming here.

My counselor started trying to talk about other things besides my PTSD and fears. She keeps saying she's not a shrink, and isn't used to really digging into guilt issues, but she seems willing to try. Maybe a little too willing, if you get my drift.

Wolfe that sounds like something you would say!

The fact that it still bothers you means you probably still need to work on that issue..

Thank you for your kind words. I'm sure Lone_Wolfe is cussing you right now.

Wolfe, you need to keep visualizing a different outcome for your dreams. I think it was beginning to work before you changed theaters. You need to do this as often as you can, at least 4-5 times a day, and especially when you lay down at night.

As for your fear and anxiety for being over there, I want to point out that you have been there for several weeks and you aren't dead yet. I'm sure you haven't told us some things and it's easy for me to say, but I think it's time you can say "screw it". Do your job the best you can for as long as you're able. If you die or get hurt again you do, but you can't live in fear. That's not the XXXXXXXX that Silent Runner knew pre-Afghanistan, and that's what you should try to return to. I know she's still in there, somewhere. You're just a little older and wiser now. And you hurt more.

I want you to know that I pray for your protection and healing every night. Even if I don't say much it doesn't mean I'm not thinking about you. I know I'm not the only one.

A prayer for Lone_Wolfe

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before you to pray for our friend, Lone_Wolfe. I pray that you would send your angels for protection over her in Afghanistan and all the days of her life. Be with her and wrap your loving arms around her and give her comfort and peace.

Lord, she has paid a big price for her service in the wars, and I ask that you would give her healing of her physical and mental problems. Cast out her doubts and fears, and rid her mind of nightmares and demons. Be with those who are caring for her over there, and give them the knowledge and foresight to know what to do for her. But above all, Lord, I ask again for miraculous healing of her chest. As Jesus healed so many during his ministry on this earth, I ask you to heal her so that there is no doubt where the healing comes from. Remove the scar tissue and inflammation from her cartilage, and mend the bones of her ribs and sternum. Release the bound connecting tissue from her lungs and heal them, and allow her to breathe. You have said "with God all things are possible" and "ask and it will be given you" and "with faith you can move mountains", so I ask you to give her this healing. Let her wake up one morning and say "Wow! I don't hurt today!" Lord, increase her faith and draw her closer to you. Let her feel the presence of your Holy Spirit.

As we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ this week, we think about all of the healing he did, and of his wonderful gift of salvation, and it's in his Holy Name that I pray, and that we have our hope. Amen.

Suuuuure you are.

Why not? I've been doing it. : whistling:
Yeah true. I guess you know you've been cussed a couple of times and made me cry a lot of times.

Doesn't mean I want to.

Please continue. You have been a great help to Wolfe's recovery.
Yes, he has. I sometimes wonder why someone who never even heard of me before he read this thread would spend so much time and energy on me.

Wolfe, you need to keep visualizing a different outcome for your dreams. I think it was beginning to work before you changed theaters. You need to do this as often as you can, at least 4-5 times a day, and especially when you lay down at night.
Yeah, that did seem to be starting to work before I found out I was coming here. I'm still trying to visualize, but so far no luck yet on the dreams. They're ugly. Hopefully that'll change. My PA here said I'm going to get be rotating my sleep made like I did before to try to get them to work a little better, because I'm getting very little sleep and it's really starting to wear on me.

As for your fear and anxiety for being over there, I want to point out that you have been there for several weeks and you aren't dead yet. I'm sure you haven't told us some things and it's easy for me to say, but I think it's time you can say "screw it". Do your job the best you can for as long as you're able. If you die or get hurt again you do, but you can't live in fear. That's not the XXXXXXXX that Silent Runner knew pre-Afghanistan, and that's what you should try to return to. I know she's still in there, somewhere. You're just a little older and wiser now. And you hurt more.

I want you to know that I pray for your protection and healing every night. Even if I don't say much it doesn't mean I'm not thinking about you. I know I'm not the only one.
I've been saying 'screw it' all along, but so far something inside me doesn't agree with that. A part of me would be relieved if one of these Afghani's kills me, but I think I'm more afraid of getting shot again and having to start all over again recoevering. Not a fun thought. Older and wiser, maybe. I like to think so. Hurt more, that's an understatement.

And you know I thank you for the prayers.

Lord, she has paid a big price for her service in the wars, and I ask that you would give her healing of her physical and mental problems. Cast out her doubts and fears, and rid her mind of nightmares and demons. Be with those who are caring for her over there, and give them the knowledge and foresight to know what to do for her. But above all, Lord, I ask again for miraculous healing of her chest. As Jesus healed so many during his ministry on this earth, I ask you to heal her so that there is no doubt where the healing comes from. Remove the scar tissue and inflammation from her cartilage, and mend the bones of her ribs and sternum. Release the bound connecting tissue from her lungs and heal them, and allow her to breathe. You have said "with God all things are possible" and "ask and it will be given you" and "with faith you can move mountains", so I ask you to give her this healing. Let her wake up one morning and say "Wow! I don't hurt today!" Lord, increase her faith and draw her closer to you. Let her feel the presence of your Holy Spirit.

As we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ this week, we think about all of the healing he did, and of his wonderful gift of salvation, and it's in his Holy Name that I pray, and that we have our hope. Amen.
I really, REALLY hope he's listening.

I started reading, but haven't finished yet. That part's hard to read, if you get my drift.

If you were here right now we could have a Percocet party. Guess this will have to do for now.

Well, good. I would hate to think I'm not being effective.


Yes, he has. I sometimes wonder why someone who never even heard of me before he read this thread would spend so much time and energy on me.

Funny, huh? I don't know either. I just know I'm supposed to do it. I have no clue where my ideas come from, or what leads me to a certain scripture to post that really captures what you are feeling. A farmer doesn't know how a seed knows to grow when it's planted either, but he knows it will so he keeps planting and harvesting by faith. I take it on faith that someday your life is going to be better, so I keep on posting and encouraging you.


I've been saying 'screw it' all along, but so far something inside me doesn't agree with that.

And you know I thank you for the prayers.

I know you do, and I hope you get comfort from them and the scriptures I post.


I really, REALLY hope he's listening.

I know he's listening. He promised he would. I'm going to keep pestering him. I have other people praying for you too that REALLY don't know you.

I started reading, but haven't finished yet. That part's hard to read, if you get my drift.

I know. That's why I wanted you to read it. Sometimes you grasp things better after some time has passed.



Got the CD in and page loaded, thanks to you.
I really appreciate him doing that for you. I would hate for all this to get lost in cyberspace.


Luke 2:8-14

King James Version (KJV)



8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Merry Christmas, Everybody!

That would be fun. Percocet on top of my Fentanyl has weird effects.

I agree, although I've had times when I wish it would.

Well, good. I would hate to think I'm not being effective.
Sometimes I think you're a little too effective.

I know you do, and I hope you get comfort from them and the scriptures I post.
Sometimes I do from them too.

I know he's listening. He promised he would. I'm going to keep pestering him. I have other people praying for you too that REALLY don't know you.
There are times when I really doubt that, but other times when I hope he is.

Please tell those people I said Thank You.

You mean when time has passed and psychosis has lost it's grip. Before I couldn't even really get my mind around some of that stuff. Or I would, and the next time I thought about it, be right back where I was.

King James Version (KJV)

It's Christmas Eve in the sandbox, and I hope you're all having a great day!
