Hello, I just seen this group off to the side and I see lots about active military. Are there any women on here with husbands either active going thru PTSD or Medically Retired going thru it. 

My husband will be 26 tomorrow and he has gotten alot better. I have had to learn to be there for him in the right way with out help. I had no idea what I was doing. I just would like to hear other womens stories and maybe be able to talk about it. Im in Nashville, TN and I dont think they do much military here. 

Anyways, my name is Megan and Im 27 with 2 kids, 6 1/2 boy and 10 month girl. Married 7 1/2 years.

My husband recently medically retired, though not due to PTSD. Is your husband already retired?

My husband and brother are both active duty with PTSD. My brother will be ETSing at the end of this year. My husband went to counseling and saw a psychiatrist for a while. I went with him a few times when I could. My brother went the same route as my husband but also ended up on anxiety meds for it. Is your DH seeking any type of help?

I'm a prior military female.

I go to my support group on Friday.

I'm not even sure what to say everyone is different in how they deal with it. Admitting it to loved ones is a good start. I've heard some horror stories about telling classmates, co-workers, or a boss. Routines are amazingly helpful for me at least. Just take it slow and I wish you the best.

Sorry I ment he is Medically retired. He didnt lose a limb or anything but he has PTSD and memory loss and hearing loss and something else. To be honest I dont know its so much. I pick on him every once in a while when we are having a fun debate about something that has happened and I tell him that he doesnt know cuz he cant remember anyway. lol. He doesnt get offended or or anything. We just laugh and he tickles me or whatever. lol. 

Just a nice story, not a bad one.

A sense of humor is always a good thing to have. We often make jokes, with the occasional inappropriate ones mixed in for good measure...lol
