Thank you so much. Thank you. Your wonderful reply made me cry those "good" tears. It already feels like I made a huge step, a leap even. Nothing is ever easy, but life has not been easy up til now anyway.

I will look for resources here. Hopefully there are more people that understand this, somewhere around where I live. I can't find any help here. I have access to all this great VA healthcare, mental health, etc, but none of it has anything to do with what I want to talk about. It would be nice to have some kind of understanding social worker, group, or even individuals nearby who could help me to understand all this. It is scary, because I feel like I want to scream, but nobody around here would even understand.

I don't want to stereotype, either, but a huge military town isn't really the place I want to go around and randomly ask people for help. If you know what I mean...

I feel so stupid. Used to live in a very strong and supportive community ten years ago. Unfortunately spent all that time trying to ignore myself, and push even harder to just be "one of the guys." I was even more scared back then when I had resources. Life is pretty funny sometimes.
