Spontaneous Wisdom

For as much wisdom has come out of all of this, I have to follow that last post up with saying that these realizations came out of spontaneous circles that would form in the day room. They almost always started as a bunch of guys "pal-ing" around with each other, giving each other a hard time. I was there with other veterans and volunteers providing food for the troops, trying to keep their spirits up in the rather early years of the war, and soon they were asking why I seemed to stand out and fit right in at the same time. It took a little coaxing in the beginning to get me to share what had happened to me because when we talk about worthiness, in the grand scheme of things, I couldn't begin to imagine where these guys had been. What right did I have to feel bad about what happened to me?  And so the journey of learning how PTSD works, began.
