Desperately searching for a {{{HUG}}}
So many deaths. So many destroyed lives. I got a major case of the blues.

Anyone got a spare hug?

3. So I see.
I give great hugs. Wish I could give you one in person.

I can't let the shit get to me - unfortunately, that means not paying much attention. I get so depressed that my three million mg of meds don't work.

But I give great hugs. :hug:

6. Here's another one.
:hug:

I know what you mean ... and people all around me are saying I should just ignore it b/c "shit happens." I can't just ignore it. I'd have to change who I am. I might as well try to make myself grow taller. And I think I'd rather feel the pain than become uncaring. I'm glad you care ... have another hug. :hug:

10. I can't ignore it; hubby's a soldier at Ft Hood, so between troops going
and troops returning, and the PTSD-caused murders and rapes and child molestations and drugs and alcohol problems and armed robberies and I help track deaths for the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count site and that's a tough job to do day after day...

I am so blahhhh. :(

Liberals sure give good hugs though! :hug:

13. What a job you have to do!
My dad had to identify bodies in Vietnam and write letters to their families. Many times, they were his friends. Some of them died right next to him. He was a mess when he came home. :(

I wish I could give you a hug in person. :( I'm so scared for my daughter and son-in-law, and they're not even over there yet. One of the sad things is that therapy is so stigmatized, especially in the military. Many of the troops don't get the help they need, even if it's available. I wonder how many tragedies could be avoided if we, as a society, treated people who have PTSD and other emotional problems with respect instead of ridicule.

I can't make any of it better ... I can just send hugs. DU is a great place for that!

:hug:
