“The "17 per day" statistic clarifies that they're only counting veterans, and not including those currently serving or who have never activated. At the same time, the VA reported that the suicide rate recently ticked *up* in their latest data.” I will never stop my mission to help all those who feel like they are alone..because you are NOT. I will never stop helping those transitioning get help and resources to live as normal life as possible when you feel like you have lost

When the PA says “welcome back” every time he sees me it means I am here far too often. Today I am getting my new hip checked out. They need to make sure it is working properly. Never did I think I would have had a hip replacement at the age of 43. Even though it hurts when I get up and walk too far, at least I am still here right? I’m not gonna lie.
