    Hey ya'll....
    My husband was in Iraq from 02/04-02/05, then he got out the military.
    He had a lot of dreams and backaches but refused to go to the doctor back then!
    Now he got called back to activ duty and in the process he got send to be treated for possible PTSD.
    That all happens really fast and it is really frightening to me. He seems to become a different men now. Everyday he has these meetings (group and single) and with every day passing he seems to feel worst.
    I guess when he was at home with me away from the military he just barried it somewhere deep down in his soul and now it all comes back up.
    Today he asked me to send him his bible. Of course i am happy about the fact that he finds peace in prayers and god, but he just didnt seem to be a really religious person since i met him. I am scared, i feel like i loose the connection to him (i've just seen him for two short weekends since he got called back).
    Thats why i became a member here, i hope to find support here.
