I Got Rob

Question

Today is my birthday, I guess I am lucky to have an extended family, Mom, Uncles and Cousin, They all from the old country i grew up in. Now there is not a smile on my face, I am really angry, so I stay to myself, Many different therapy, I think in a nice way they, can shove it. I will finish the programs, I know it is Me, my way of thinking, Just going to keep my mouth shut. My wife of twenty eight years, has put up with me. But these last couple of months, She blames me for no social life we had. Very good woman, I blame Her for not understanding, Ptsd, who knows? I have so much love and tenderness, in this broken body, that hurts all over, ( spondyolosis ) ridden body. What a way so spend a Birth day.. I don't want to spend my life like this. I want to love again. I think wife and myself on two different road. But I will man up, on my duty. But no love coming back. And that is no cognitive distortion. I can spend my time with my dogs, this should not have happened. How could I have lead men, now I can't keep this together . Thanks for letting me blow off some steam.

Hold your head high and take it one day at a time. Roll with the punches and leave them in past. Its all about the here and now. You are who you are and only you can change that. The ptsd doctors can give you the tools to do so. The further out you look the steeper the road to recovery will look. One thing I have found is there is going to many days where you'll feel you took one step forward and ten back. Just don't let it get to you. After all it is one big mind game.

You're doing great coming here and blowing off some steam. Very hard to do. Happy birthday btw!

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
