I say this with a heavy heavy heart that I find this as heartbreaking as it comes.

My heart is broke this morning. I was so afraid this would be the outcome but hopeful it would not. With all the money the government spends on stupid shit, can’t we tackle this problem. My best friend was a combat vet in nam. He shared with me one day how what hurt him so bad was going straight from combat in viet nam, to being home within a week. He said it was like cultural shock. He didn’t talk much, but he was disappointed that he wasn’t given help before coming home. To think he went off to a foreign land, to kill or be killed, lost many buddies, then came home and shot himself. My heart aches for the family, it’s so hard to wrap your head around. R.I.P. Brother, your tour here is over, suffer no more.

This entire area is a damn cess pool of horrible uncaring people mixed in with a very few decent ones. It makes it damn near impossible for people who need help to get it, and for people who need support to get it. I see a tricare network psychiatrist and I dread having to go each and every time I go because the majority of the staff treat you like complete sh*t. Your friends, if you are lucky enough to have any, can’t deal with you having problems that don’t have an easy fix. Reaching out for help, I personally have and been told to kill myself, or just brushed off.

I hope this is a wake up call that the entire support system for mental health in this area is trash. Complete and utter trash. The only people who are able to get help here are the people who don’t actually need it.

Stop posting political crap here, and stop posting stupid vaccine garbage conspiracy theories. That is not the problem. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. Taking this mans death and trying bringing your hidden agenda into it. A bunch of disgusting human beings is what we have in society now, a saturation of them around this area.

Rest in peace brother. Your pain does not go unnoticed. Together we sacrifice so much for so many but in the end we have nobody to take care of us.
