Wolfe, how are you doing? We are all still praying. We love you.: hugs:: hugs:
Thank you for that, I love all of you too. I think I need the prayers bad right now.

Just because some quadruple star and cluster and whatever megga doctor/shrink picks up your file and leafs through it, scanning the complicated contents and history doesn't, in my mind, ensure that you are going to get SQUAT for situation-specific medical/psy care.

Would you consider NOT going as NOT a "backing out" but, rather, perhaps, a making a different and better plan?

There's just too many hands in the soup, and I don't trust a one of them. Not.A.One.

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((love you))))))))))))))))))))))))
My last conversation with my shrink was interesting. One of the things she said to me was the reason she thinks I'm willing to go back to some place where I know I'll be miserable and scared as hell. She commented that with my chest hurting like it does it keeps me from being able to enjoy doing even things I'd otherwise like doing. So since I'm not going to be happy anyway I go ahead and let myself be led into doing things that I wouldn't be happy doing even if my chest were OK.

With that said, all the stuff you wrote here is going through my mind too. I scared as hell, and not just of getting shot again and the nightmares about it. All the same things about no one being able or willing to do what I need are really working on me right now. It's too late to change my plans now, I'm on my way to Baghdad. I stood there looking at the flight listings earlier tonight and felt such a sense of dread when I saw Bagram listed that I really can't describe it. Yeah, I'd seriously consider backing out if I could right now. But I can't so I got to do like Bob said and be strong. I only wish I was half as strong as he thinks I am.

My internet connection here isn't worth a crap, so I'll have to get back to the rest of what you all wrote later.

You're not strong on your own. You have Help and lots of prayers.

I posted the verses below over a year ago. We're still here with you, and God still hears our prayers.

Psalm 6 (NIV)

O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.

Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint;
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.


My soul is in anguish.
How long, O LORD, how long?

Turn, O LORD, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.

No one remembers you when he is dead.
Who praises you from the grave?

I am worn out from groaning;
all night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.

My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my foes.

Away from me, all you who do evil,
for the LORD has heard my weeping.

The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my prayer.

All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed;
they will turn back in sudden disgrace.


Psalm 13 (NIV)

A psalm of David.

How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

my enemy will say, “I have overcome [her],”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.

I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.

And a new one for strength and comfort:

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the LORD your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.

Isaiah 41 (NIV)

The first part of that first one really seems to fit, the part of just being exhausted from the pain.

And a new one for strength and comfort:

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you

13 For I am the LORD your God

Thank you for sticking with me, I know you must be sick of me.

I can think of a few medical people I wish would read that. Every once in a while I get the "Didn't that happen in 2008? Surely it doesn't still hurt, does it?" I just want to offer to shoot them and revisit their question a few years later.

You mean a lot to me even though we've never met. I wish you weren't going, but you are so you have to be strong. Just know that God is with you there. It doesn't matter where "there" is because he is there in your heart. I'm praying for your protection, healing and strength.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9 NIV)
God may be there, although so often I think he's not, but who I really want to see is that angel dude you posted earlier.

I'm not that tough. Besides, you told me before that you didn't think either of us would survive if I stayed over here. Just don't shoot me, OK?

Ha! You can't get rid of me. You're looking for your purpose? Well, I've found part of mine. I'm supposed to be doing this.

I can think of a few medical people I wish would read that. Every once in a while I get the "Didn't that happen in 2008? Surely it doesn't still hurt, does it?" I just want to offer to shoot them and revisit their question a few years later.

Ask them if they've ever been kicked in the chest by a mule. Imagine how that would feel. Now ask them how it would feel if they had that energy concentrated into 7.62 mm.

God may be there, although so often I think he's not, but who I really want to see is that angel dude you posted earlier.

You haven't seen him? Geez, he's standing right behind you.




Made you look!


I think you will feel him before you see him.

I'm not that tough. Besides, you told me before that you didn't think either of us would survive if I stayed over here. Just don't shoot me, OK?
Let us know when you get there.

I think the doc I saw today is in that club. It didn't go well at all. I finally convinced someone at the company office here that I needed to get to the hospital to see a doc. Between the cold, thin air here, and the abuse my chest has been through to get here I was hurting so bad I couldn't walk straight and started into a breathing attack. Someone finally drove me there and some young doc finally came in and didn't seem to have a clue what to do with me. He finally let someone give me some oxygen to ease the attack.

After it subsided he came back in the room where I was and started looking at my records. He was like "What the hell?" Then he said my pain meds prescription was too high and needed to be lowered. I asked him if he was going to be my regular doc and he said he couldn't do that. Then I asked if he was going to do an MRI or something to see if I'd done any damage traveling. He said he couldn't to that either. Then I asked him to please revoke my medical clearance waiver to be here, so I'd have to be sent home. He said he couldn't do that either. So I said "You can't or won't do a damn thing to help me, or even get me shipped home, but you'll take away the pain meds I need so bad?!? What gives?"

I'm going to ask another doc to yank my clearance to be here, I just don't think I can handle what's in my head right now in addition to the pain.
