    Hi everyone , i have been redirected to this forum from bpd world , which i have been on recently for support.
    My story is that i am an ex british airborne soldier who served 25 years ago in the Falklands , and later in Northern Ireland and Bosnia .
    25 years ago the accepted military practice for ptsd was go to the naafi , get wasted and then get on with it.
    i sucessfully did this for the rest of my army career.
    My third wife left me last week due to my ptsd and other issues, and i have a 15 year old daughter who i have seen 4 times since she was 18 months old.
    until this years 25th anniversary "celebrations" ( BAD CHOICE OF WORD) i thought i had got my life back on track , but recently this thing has come back to haunt me.
    Please help me
    Andy

    Andy,
    If you want help, this is the best place to find it!. Read as much as you can, and post whatever you want in regards to helping yourself understand and deal with your PTSD. No question is stupid, no question will go unanswered. You are definately not alone in this!!!!
    Read, get familiar with the site, and go from there at your own pace.
    Welcome to our community:thumbs-up!

    Hello Andy, welcome to the forum. There has been a lot in the media about the 25th anniversary. I can understand that being difficult to stomach.

    There's lots here to help you help yourself. Lots of info and lots of supportive people plus quite a few people from the forces too.

    Claire
