This is the toughest thing for me to write about. After 10 years of military service, and just different events in my life, I left the military feeling completely fine. When I say fine, I mean like not lose sleep over anything, but I didn’t sleep all that well. I say fine, but I couldn’t really express any emotionally feelings with anyone. I say fine, but the level of empathy that I had would resemble a teenage girl forgetting to put gas in the car and coasting into town on fumes high. I thought I was fine, and I couldn’t have been more dead-ass wrong. Not until recently have I seen and felt what I have been struggling with all these years. This is my attempt to be completely exposed. Exposed about the feelings, the struggles, the successes, the triggers, and all the things that come with mental health. Like I’ve said, I have an amazing life, with amazing people in it, if I can struggle with mental health and have a hard time with it, I can’t imagine someone without the same support network. I hope that through these posts, I can help at least one person, that I can change one person’s outlook on life and then they can change another’s.
