Hi, This is my first post, I am an Army Veteran, a Vietnam, Desert Storm Vet, with PTSD, so you already see where I am coming from, but no one will help me I have try for 23 years and ask for help but yet no help has come. The VA said yes you do have PTSD but we will not help you, yes you deserve it but we wont help you. So I understand how you feel, when you don't know what else to do. I have had one heart attack and now I have 15 cornary stent in one of the artery in my heart.

Hi Voodoo, I want to thank you for your service. A Veteran Hospital will not help you? Do you see any of the therapist through the VA? I am sorry to hear that they are not being supportive. I hope that you try other Government facilities and keep pushing for what you are deserving.
