This is my first entry to this group. I have been dealing with this for over a year. I was in Iraq during the most violent period and did not experience problems until after 6 months after I got back. I guess I was so focused on my mission and my patients that I didn't have time for all that happened to me to soak in. Since I am an officer, it was difficult for me to admit that I needed help. First it was the chaplain, than the support group which helped but my sleep and the memories still suffered. I am now seeing a great mental health provider who is guiding me through the healing process through behavioral therapy and edmr. This seems to be helping but I cant help but think that if anyone saw what I did they would have to be affected. Right? Anyway I hope to hear from fellow vets about their experiences. Thanks.
