Why send the beer here? I'll be in the States before it can get here.

I agree with this completely. They may not have run into the line of fire but they saved your life just as surely as Greg did. Without your doctor especially I believe you would not be alive today. I wish I could say thank you in person to all of them.
I sure hope my doc especially is proud of what he did for me, my shrink too. I know they both told me they feel a sense of accomplishment. Without what he did for me I know I wouldn't be alive today. Someone had to recognize a drug allergy and get me off that crap and fast. And that's not even counting all the things he's done for me since then. I owe him and can't ever repay him.

I owe my shrink bigtime, too.

That may be what is happening to you in your detached dreams. Your subconscious realizes it's just a dream and so it doesn't bother you as much. What does your shrink say about that?

He's never mentioned anything like that. He doesn't seem to think it's nything except the Xanax doing what it's paid to do.

Now if I could just do something about the one where I'm at my desk at work and I realize I'm naked.

You know it's coming.............

Hmmm...let's just say that if it kept you from getting shot, yeah, I wouldn't mind two of you.

You'd probably shoot me yourself. And me too.


Now that would be funny as hell! But what would the rest of the soldiers do while I was doing all that?

1. Applaud

2. Call Satan to come pick up his trash

3. : bowdown:

hahahahaha

Please tell them that we all appreciate their volunteering to serve and to help our Wounded Warriors like you. They rank right up there with Greg and the medic as far as doing what it takes to save your life.
I'll pass on that and any other messages you want me too. I was thanking my doc today and I said “You didn’t have to do all that you did for me, you really went above and beyond” He said back to me (paraphrased) “Yes, I did. I knew of you and from your records couldn’t believe you were really in country. But the first time I saw YOU, you were fighting the restraints on a bed, both legs in casts and didn’t even seem to know where you were. I knew someone had really missed something serious, and you needed help and you needed it fast. I also knew that if you didn’t get it you probably wouldn’t love much longer and I couldn’t turn my back on someone like that. We all here owed you that much. If I’d realized right away how bad your injuries still were I’d have put you on a flight back to the States that same day, but by the time I really saw I figured if I was in for a penny I may as well be in for a pound. I know you still have a long way to go, but it makes me feel good to have had a part in getting you this far in your recovery”.

He had told me before that one reason he tried so hard with me is that I kept fighting even when I wanted to give up. I said something about how many times I’d have given up of I hadn’t been made to keep going. He told me that he thinks I’ve given up a hundred times, but one way or another I’d always gotten back up, with or without help, and gone on. How I wish he’d still be here when I get back, but he’s done so much I can’t ask him for any more. After all, he did save my life more than once.

You wouldn't want to see those pics, trust me!

Both legs in casts? Tell me about that. I keep finding stuff I didn't know.

Hi Sweetheart! You and I have talked about the voice inside of you that keeps telling you "Never give up!" Thank goodness your doc saw that too. You are an inspiration.

Why wouldn't I want those pics?

It was actually mentioned in here, but a while back before you came around. The incident that landed me in the hospital here for a week and caused my allergy to anti-depressants included me trying to escape by running across some rocks, where I tripped and hurt both ankles. Because at the time I couldn’t get up on either foot, ice casts were put on both legs as a precaution. It turned out I’d just twisted and sprained both a little, no real harm done. But that’s the early morning that I met my doctor, and I wasn’t a pretty sight, I can assure you.

Inspiration, I doubt it. For who?

If just living and recovering from my injuries is reward enough, then a lot of people are getting rewarded by my survival. Greg, my medic and the medevac crew that came for me, the docs and staff at the hospital I was taken to, then in Germany. Then my doc, shrink, plus several other docs, shrinks, medics etc that worked with me the last 2 ½ years. That just doesn’t seem to me like I’m doing enough to repay what they’ve all done and are still doing for me.

I agree with Miss S_R, live your life well and you have repaid all debts in full. You are an inspiration to everyone who knows your story Sweetheart.

For inspiration goo look in the mirror, don't you think. Now I wish I could inspire my chest to stop screaming at me. It's giving me hell today, guess I pissed it off. Mandy too, she isn't real happy right now. . In fact she says “Oh no, not this **** again!”

Okie Memorial Area

I think she was looking for a knife when she saw me get out my bag and look at her with that look again. Hey, at least she goes in carry-on instead of checked bags! I can't really blame her for being upset though, look at what it's like in Kuwait today. Sandstorm from hell. Can't wait to get the hell out of this ****Hole!

Okie Memorial Area

Those were taken from the window of a taxi going down the road slowly because we couldn't see very far at all. Those sandbars you see are across the road.


My doc and shrink both went a little above and beyond today. They both went with me to flight ops to see me off. They each gave me a hug and wished me well, and I bawled my eyes out as I said goodbye. In fact I’m crying again as I write this. My shrink also told me that he chose his job because he hoped he could make a difference to someone. I assured him that he did. I also passed on the messages I was asked to give them both.

Your psychiatrist was a Godsend compared to the one he replaced. Both docs obviously think highly of you and will make sure their replacements are well aware of your situation. It's going to be allright Sweetheart. I hope your flight to the states is uneventful this time.

Thanks Bob, Skidoo.

I won't be on at my usual times because I'm going to be listening to my chest complain about how painful traveling is, but I'll also be 'enhancing' my pain meds later tonight. I'll check in when I can.

Mandy is so ready for this traveling to be done, she's sitting here beside me in the hotel lobby staring at the chocolates she can't have.

Thanks Gyfgyf. Do me a favor and add 'uneventful' to that wish list. So far it's been anything but.

My chest is giving me holy hell and I had a nasty breathing attack when I was waiting to board the plane in Kuwait. I was doing me best to hide it so I wouldn't get stopped from getting on and I almost passed out. Crap, it hurt! Took a while to get it to subside too, and I'm still feeling it.

Glad to hear that you are mobile. I hope this means that you will be sleeping in your own bed before long.

Thanks. My bed is right down the hall and I think I'm about to pour my exhausted butt in it and hope I can sleep.

Actually I'm in Fort Livingroom right now. My chest is giving me enough hell to put me in a hospital, though. It was a lonnnng trip. If you want I'll tell you more about it tomorrow.
