My H deployed to Afghanistan in 2005. He was gone for 18 months. He went through some sort of combat or something (so I've heard from his dad) though no one knows any details and he won't say a word to anyone. Anyways, since he came back he started going out all the time, stayed very pessimistic, generally unsatisfied with life,etc. before he left the marriage for good last october he said that when he though about our life together it just seemed like we would work, struggle financially, and then die. nothing to look forward to. i know he's got all the signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, however he won't see a doctor or therapist,e tc. i don't have any influence with him anymore, he's moved out and moving on, but I was just curious if anyone else has been in a similar situation, where a deployment resulted in an emotionless clone of their former spouse returning home in their place?
