I heard this from my patients at the VA hospital I was a chaplain at. I am not anywhere near your age, but even I find that there are things that I cannot do anymore...
To be truly young again with barely a care in the world and near limitless potential...that would be nice.
How did the years after the war treat you?
Thanks for your service both in and out of uniform.

It is a sacred duty of all mariners to give aid to those in distress. Out there we are all at the mercy of the wind and waves.

My cousin lost his battle buddy in an IED blast in Iraq plus two of his legs. He would go on to commit suicide.
So...just know that there is a tomorrow and a lot of people who honestly care. You know, just in case...

The best thing about being an adult and living alone is that every day at home is pants optional. The highpoint of my day is when I take my pants off.

Holy guacamole this is a heck of a story.
I am glad that you found some docs who were the right fit. My son and wife have issues and I have learned how critical it is to have someone who is sensitive and caring when the world is crashing down.
Since I have to ask a question, how awkward was it telling your husband “so, um, you know my ‘hey nanny nanny?’ of course you do. Well, it has a story to it. No, really, charts, graphs, etc.”
For some reason I imagine it must have been hilarious. Also awkward and serious. But oh so hilarious at the same time.
