I Have Ptsd

I'm retired millitary and served 2 tours in Vietnam. I lost a lot of friends while there, and couldn't save them. I spent many nights asking why I survived, and why I couldn't help them. I still have dreams and nightmares. I relive the events when they bought the farm. So, many times since then I have felt useless..I feel like I'm just going through the motions of living, but not really experiencing life.

Even though I didn't get PTSD through war. I got it from being beaten by father. I know what you are going through. You are not a failure.
