    First, I am very sorry you feel this way. You should know that positive thinking and actions will yield positive results. Just think positive thought and everything will be ok!

    Second, there are lots of people who are more than happy to help you and your family through any hardships you may have when he comes home. Don’t ever feel that any sort of negative change is normal. Be proactive. Be extra supportive. And make sure that he knows no matter what you will always be there for him.

    I wish you the best of luck.

    PTSD is a stress related disorder. My husband came home and has it. We got into a fight once, and I knew better. I knew I shouldn’t yell at him. I knew the mean things I was saying was hurting him too deep. I knew it and I kept going. I ended up against the wall with his hand around my throat. We are now in counseling because he can’t stop crying over it, and I can’t forgive him even though I pushed him to it.

    For your own good don’t be afraid of that. If he comes back with PTSD, give him love, respect and support. You can always get counseling and other help if things get out of hand, but do NOT expect the worst. Always remember that love is strong.

    PTSD would be a huge hurdle to climb over, but both of you should keep in mind that worrying over or fearing something only builds it up in your mind and makes it worse. So, try not to stress about it too much. Take it one day at a time, don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it, and remember that if you can work through something like PTSD then you can get through anything together.

    PTSD is not the end all you think it might be. My husband spent time in Iraq and has PTSD himself. It is something you work through every day. Each person has their own triggers and if necessary their are medications that can help with some of it. Just be there, show you care and work through it. There is nothing you cannot overcome if you just try… and we are trying every day.
