Combat Vets Wife Angers Her Husband: I Feel Shitty, Oh So Shitty

I unintentionally upset my husband last night, the details of which are inconsequential to the emotion behind this post. When I left the house for work he remained behind sitting alone unconsoled. I was so mad at myself that before going into the Jail I sat in my truck, grabbed a scrap of paper, and frantically scribbled out my frustration.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.... so enough said.


  1. I had a question that I thought could better be answered by you and this post illiterates how a significant other may feel when teetering on this precipice.

    "Could you sometime share your thoughts on something I often, as a sig other, wrestle with - the difference between being supportive of him, and enabling him."

  2. PTSD Book:

    After reading Tears of a Warrior, you will understand:

    •the experience of combat
    •how PTSD affects the veteran
    •how PTSD affects the family
    •strategies for living with PTSD
    •how to restore hope for today and the future

  3. PTSD Book: Free to veterans and their families


  4. I assume that would be free to *American* Military veterans and their families ...
