I am a wife of a Vietnam Veteran. Steve and I have been married for 49 years. My husband and I are an exception in that we have been married for so long, as often veteran families end up divorced because it is difficult to live with the symptoms of PTSD.
In my husband's case, he was a field medic; his whole time in Vietnam was spent in combat. One day he told me the way he emotionally survived Vietnam was to not get too close to anyone because it hurt too much to see them die. I felt so sad to hear that because my husband is a loving man. Only another wife of a war veteran can understand the challenges and pain of living with PTSD.
My husband Steve and I try to keep our sense of humor; it is our lifeline to normalcy. Unfortunately, Steve was exposed to Agent Orange. As a result of that exposure, he now has psoriatic arthritis, diabetes, ischemic heart disease and has had a stroke. Steve has been an exception in the VA system... he has had both good counseling and health care. Although it has been available to him, he has rejected narcotics for pain.
Steve has used many of the hypnosis recordings on this site to help him approach life with dignity and calmness, reduce his stress and manage pain. Putting this program together has been quite challenging but I stuck it out because I believe it can help veterans and their families.
I do recommend anyone with any kind of diagnosis to consult their health care professional before using the hypnosis MP3's. If you want, you can ask your health care professional to email me and I will send them a link to review the site.
I can only say that my husband has benefited greatly by listening to the recordings. I will be adding new recordings for this particular part of the site from time to time. Also, you can email me, and I can make an MP3 to address a specific problem that may not be covered in the website for you.
A Closing Note from Sharron
Deep down inside, you already know this program is right for you.
Rather than spend days or weeks agonizing over this decision, checking your budget a hundred times, letting fear take over, just make the choice.
If your gut is saying "no", then I wish you all the best, and hope the timing will be right for us to work together another day.
If your gut is saying "yes", then I look forward to working with you through hypnosis. I know you can live life to your fullest. It just takes one small action step.
