It has been a long six months for me. Last August I was diagnosed with an infection to my spine. It was grueling. The pain was much worse than anything I had faced before. I couldn’t move without pain. The pain seemed to come knocking at my door and stayed for months.
Today I am filling my last prescription of antibiotics. I am hoping that will be the end of clearing up my infection.
Then to make sure I was beaten up and knocked down, my right hip started acting up about a month ago. It got steadily worse. Last week I saw my primary doctor, and he ordered x-rays. The results show that I probably will need hip surgery. There is pretty much bone rubbing against bone.
Why am I crying on your shoulder?
You probably have had your share of ailments, and injuries. You have had much more pain that I probably have had. Your demons are active if you have PTSD.
I am crying on your shoulder to let you know, I feel your pain! I know what it is like. I have been to the mountain of pain. I have had six major surgeries, and counting.
So, What can we, as veterans, do to face this not so friendly world?
Being strong through all the pain, is a huge example to our families. I can’t tell you how many times I have had friends and family ask, “How can you be so positive after all you have been through?” My answer, the alternative is to drown in my own self pity, and invite people to my pity parties. People aren’t too excited to hear about our woes, and worries.
To me there is a reason for every thing. I think that being through so many different ailments and pain helps me to relate to others going through the same things.
I’m not a tough guy. I often ask Why me? But I have accepted my duty, and I will do what I can to help someone else through their nightmare.
Above all else, get help if you need it. Trying to be tough doesn’t work.
I personally turn all my hurts and pain over to God. He sees me through the storms of my life.
