I wonder how many women would want to buy products with collagen if they knew it was a byproduct of aborted fetuses?

living with someone with PTSD

It's hard to expalin the strain or anxiety the rest of the family feel. It's like constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. And the only person who can fix it isn't willing to get the help he needs to do so, so the rest of us learn to "adjust" and "cope" by going to therapy ourselves.

Jesus the excuse

Why do some people who call themselves Christians use Jesus as an excuse for not facing up to their own responsibilities?

And why do others blame people who haven't "accepted Jesus as their personal savior" for having a mental illness?

The more I see of the kind of judgemental attitudes with belief in Jesus as the root, the more agnostic I become.

Did you ever notice, men and women use the term listen or listening in different ways.

When a man says "You aren't listening to me." He means, "you aren't obeying me."

When I woman says "You aren't listening to me." She means, you aren't hearing what I say and what I want and need.

My husband, 39 years after being discharged from military service, is suffering from PTSD.

There is supposed to be help for Vererans and their families. And there is IF you are a Gulf War, Iraq War or Afgan war veteran. There is virtually nothing available in MY area for men who returned from Viet Nam.

So, now what?

So now I make phone calls, and get no where because Viet Nam vets have never counted and they still don't.

So now I have to look for help on my own.

Life sucks.
