My husband was in the AF. I've been married to military for 30 years. I have a lot of family that was over in Vietnam. My H did not have to go to war but he did his part in dessert storm. He like you can not talk about
all he did in his job, and I've learned through the years not to push. But you can always turn to the VA for help, even if its for a hobby like Erik has talked about
. I to have been diagnosed with bi-polar and major depression. And I find it hard at times to keep my faith. There is so much you can do to get involved in.
Maybe you could talk to your church and do something with the youth, if you have a farm. I find I'm better if I'm around someone. But its harder for me because I also have crohn's which has kept me almost house bound for 2 and a half years. I was always out and about
before then. I find being around kids seem to help me. and I do crafts, my H he does leather crafts, and we go to craft shows 2 or 3 times a year.
You just have to find what will work for you. There is always someone out there that needs a helping hand. I try to keep my mine going all the time. That way you have no time to sit and ponder.
I will keep you in my prayers,
