I served in the initial invasion in Iraq with a with the 18th Airborne Core and was selected to be assigned to Special
Joint Security Task Force Headquarters Battery, 11th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, 1st Marine Expeditionary
Force I was with a 4 man recon team joint Marine and Army I was a specialist E4 foward observer/overwatch and
I have PTSD, TBI, both hips shattered, left collar bone broken, broken jaw, C1C5, t12 fracture, left hand mangled all bones had to be reconstructed, left arm broken left hip replacement, anxiety, depression, hopelessness, fatigue, anger, guilt, self-harm, isolation, difficulty acclimating back into society. I say that because my failure of being able to adapt reared its nose at around 33 as in a wheel chair for nearly 3 years with $435 dollars a month living in my truck, having to sneak on post to sleep in the barracks because it was 19 below, adapting to society has been the biggest stressor or triggering factor leading to multiple suicide attempts.
The VA uses what is notoriously known as the zombie cocktail consisting of up to 1325 pills at any point in a futile
attempt to control your pain, confusion and emotional agony.
I am excited to try HBOT
