    I worked at a VA clinic in the mental health department. Everyone I worked with was very good and really cared and tried to help the vets. ON a side note, the vietnam vets with the PTSD could be really scary to be around.

    because everyone expects them to be really fucked up, you know? Vietnam vets are always the first vets to be picked on in movies and such. my old man was a LRRP in Vietnam, so i know how frustrating PTSD can be, especially when shit on TV or whatever is constantly making it a laughable issue.

    Well here's a follow up.... doctor recomended me for some x-rays on my back and some physical therapy stuff. Got my appointment with a nutritionist, etc. They did some stool samples and some blood work also. I'm going to request to get some testosterone levels checked and maybe some liver tests if they allow it. :)

    yeah it is a serious issue, but from first hand experience its not because people expect it, they really are the worst. I had one guy who couldn't let anyone walk behind him, I walked behind him once to go to the bathroom and he jumped around into like the kick my ass ready stance.
