With what Lone_Wolfe, has done in protecting out country and my family, I would be a real scuz bucket, if I weren't willing to help her in any way I could. LW, is an inspiration for many, and she will win this battle. It is just a hand up, not a hand out, and many of us need that at times.

LW, these are for you.

Keep fighting the good battle. You are making progress and I know that is a very encouraging sign. You keep fighting the good battle, and I will keep up the prayers, good thoughts and moral support. I know that the others on here will also.

Slobberchops, very nice looking dog.

I will tell you that when I saw her in June I was truly afraid that I was soon to lose a friend of almost 20 years and that made me cry. She may get upset that I say this in public but it's true. The care or the lack thereof that she recieved left a lot to be desired. Pumping anyone full of drugs is no answer. That will only make problems worse.

It feels so much better to cry for the reason I do now when I see what you people are doing and I also see hope and improvement in her posts and when I talk to her. Please keep up what you are doing and pray for all of out troops over there.


I'd like to give you one of these too for being here.

I wouldn't mind having her or maybe some of you GT'er here watching over me right now. Last night was a sleepless one, the nightmares made sure of that. Today's being a difficult one, but I'm taking you people's advice. One second, one minute, one hour at a time I'm fighting off the ugly thoughts.

I'm not going to give up today, I swear it! Too many of you folks praying for and pulling for me to let that happen.
LW, we know that you are fighting hard, to banish the demons and ugly thoughts. We know that you are not a quitter, and will win this battle. Sure wish that a bunch of us, could be there in person to watch over you. Since we can't be there in person, we are doing what we can, by watching over you with prayers and good thoughts.

You will not give up!! You will deal with the problems 1 second, 1 minute and 1 hour at a time. People are praying and pulling for you every second of the day.

These are for you sweetie: You get some rest and keep making progress. The GT'ers, will keep sending up the prayers and good thoughts for you.

Glad that you're doing much better! I just wanted to check in and let you know that I am also still pulling for ya!

B.


P.S. I wonder if the one "holding your hand" is your fallen friend?
Thanks B. Somm, that means a lot to me. My eyes have sprung a leak many times over. I soaked poor Mandy's fur a bit ago when a nightmare woke me up, so I came in here and re-read part of this thread. Different kind of tears now.

I've considered the possibility that it could be my friend a couple times there was one person that seemed to be in the room with me. But that wouldn't explain the time I saw several.

I mentioned the visions to the doc yesterday and of course he said it's reaction to the drugs. OK doc......... I'll keep listening to you people's ideas about what's happening there.

Lone_Wolfe, keep on giving it your best. I know that you are giving it heck, to get thru this. Good thoughts, prayers, encouragement and moral support continue flowing you way. We are all praying for a complete recovery for you, asap.

I'm doing just that, giving it my best. Nights like this I still wonder if my best will be good enough. But it's easier than it was. I know that I'll sleep tommorow night even if I don't at all tonight. I just got to figure out these nightmares. That will make all the difference.

Thank you for the thoughts, prayers, and moral support. I can feel them over here. Right now it's like I can feel a hand on my shoulder. And it's not Mandy, she'd under the other arm.

When I first read this I couldn't believe it was coming from deadday, even though he's been down this road. But it does make some sense, and as I've found out it can make a difference. Zonny sent me the stuffed kitty "Mandy" that I've referred to several times, and I wouldn't want to be without her now. I had another bad night last night and I think I tried to squeeze the stuffing out of her I hugged her so much. I'm going to ruin my poor kitty's fur with saltwater before I'm done, but that's what she's here for.

I sure get some funny looks carrying her to the base hospital every other night, but I also get some jealous looks too. She already has a bit of a fan club at the hospital, too.

You can be as hard as a rock, but your willingness to fight and live dictates whether you live or don't, ask my momma....it's your will to fight I was talking about. Though you say you have not felt strong, you've pulled through.

I don’t post the details here because I don’t want to make anyone who might be squeamish uncomfortable, but in this case I think the shrinks are onto something.
Still a good thing, this only means that you have identified a way out! The first step to solving a problem is identifying it, knowing what it is and where it comes from, so, have at it!

I'm doing better than I was in dealing with this, but I still get hung up on it sometimes. It’s just hard to put it aside. A part of me wonders why anyone would get themselves killed to save me. I’m no one special. But trust me, I’m fighting. Now that I’ve had a couple weeks off all the meds the docs had me on my head is beginning to clear and I think it’s starting to get easier to fight off the darkest thoughts. I do know a lot of that was drug induced, but now I’m wondering just how much of it was.
Obviously he, and we, think you are someone special. I see we're going to have a problem with this. However, it does sound like you're doing much, much better now. I'm glad to see that.

Don’t make me out to be someone I’m not. I’m no saint. Although it’s not usual for me I have posted in anger before. I’ve been in a couple arguments on here. And there are lots of people on here that just plain dislike me. In some of those cases I know why, but other times I don’t. I do try to be nice to people on here and even help when I can. I will say that I’m not evil here or in person. But I really don’t consider myself a hero.
Hold up here, princess, don't confuse anger with evil. Saints do get mad. I've seen your arguments, and I still stand by my original statement. Being a saint does NOT mean being a pushover, those are cowards, and cowards aren't saints...now that I think about it, many people dislike saints due to their own condition, none of your fault. Let them hate, don't you change because of it.

And I would love to meet you too.
Glad to know we are of some use to you. We all want you to get well and are rooting for you, all the way.

Had a very sleepless night and got to thinking about you out of the blue. I sure hope you've got some good people watching over you. Wish there was a way for some of us to be there for you but just know that you are in our thoughts MANY times during the day and sometimes when we are suppose to be sleeping.

If you mean medical people looking after me, Iíd say the doc in charge of my case for the past several weeks is probably the best Iíve had so far. Heís the one that got me off all the meds that were screwing me up and even ordered my shrink not to prescribe anything else.

But the people that are really watching over me are right here on this forum. I think you folks are watching over me in spirit. I believe in that sense that you are there for me and itís making a difference. Hope you sleep good tonight. I know that I will.

I've been wondering after seeing how you're enjoying Mandy and after sharing your story of loaning her to the injured soldier you visited, if there is a need for 'cuddle buddies' in the military hospitals. So many people want to help and send the usual, toothpaste, floss, deodorant, socks etc. It is my understanding that there are boxes upon boxes of this kind of stuff not even touched at some of the FOBs.

I wonder if maybe thinking out of the box, would make a few soldiers happy.
Do you think even the male soldiers would enjoy a fuzzy 'cuddle buddy'?

Is it possible to send boxes to hospitals without using a specific soldier's name?

LW, I know that you are giving it you best. You are not a quitter, and you will prevail. Your best will be good enough to prevail. You are making progress, as slow as it may be. You just keep giving it your best. We will not let you fail. Myself and the others on GT, will do anything we can to help you succeed. Get some rest, so you will feel better tomorrow.

Thank you for the kind words. I hope that you never have to go through anaything like this. I know that if you were going through something like this, myself and several other GT'ers, would be offering the same type of support to you. I know that yourself and Lone_Wolfe, would be doing the same, for anyone needing the moral support, prayers and encouragement.

I wonder if maybe thinking out of the box, would make a few soldiers happy.
Do you think even the male soldiers would enjoy a fuzzy 'cuddle buddy'?

Is it possible to send boxes to hospitals without using a specific soldier's name?
Zonny, thatís a really nice idea and I think you may be on to something. But you may not want to have them sent here, but instead to places like Walter Reed, Rammstein, Trippler. The reason I say that is injured soldiers donít stay here. They get medevaced back as soon as possible most of the time. Iím an exception because the Army had the bright idea to try rehabbing a few ďKeyboard RangerĒ types in the field. Iíve been told they only tried a few gave up on the idea and guess who is a big part of it being declared a failure.

So the people that have to spend any length of time in the hospital will be out of here. I donít know if the stateside hospitals have stuffed critters available. Maybe deadday will fill in that block.

Yes, I think both men and women will enjoy them and it is possible to address a box to ďAny SoldierĒ. Just make sure the contents of the box are clearly marked so it isnít given to someone who would rather have that box of pogey bait.

I will say that having my kitty to cuddle especially when I wake crying from a nightmare or just get really down does seem to help. It's hard to explain why, but deadday was right.
