    an outside therapist, not one from the VA system, how is he going to pay for a session of $250.00 for 50 minutes, if it's clear that a long-term therapy would be necessary? Do you know what it means to get counseling in an overcrowded, overburdened VA facility?

    These people can be so sick they don't even recognize a compassionate person and see everywhere nothing but fraud and abuse. When there is no income, there is no money, what is there to financially counsel over?

    I just realized that my new sig should be yours just in the opposite order.

    Well, apparently all is good and nobody has to fall through the cracks in this healthcare system. Or you have to accept to be "mentally sick" and declare yourself as a PTSD victim, even if you don't believe it yourself.

      I see how glib I sounded in my response, never having been a veteran or been trying to navigate through that system. I HEAR you, my friend.

      People WILL still fall through the cracks until we reach a real, workable Single Payer for All system.

      I have to push as hard as I can in that direction.

        the last couple of days. I have to push as hard as I can to pick myself up.

        Thanks for listening despite my "poor me" attitude.
