war is real

unconcerned, uncompromised and unconvoluted letters from a soldier getting ready to face war for the second time.

6:23 AM - TEN PINA COLADAS.

there's nothing is peaceful as sitting outside in the beautiful sun, a lovely lady at your side and an ice-cold frozen pina colada in your hand. my weekend was comprised of little more than the scene i described above, and also some episodes of 3-4 hour naps that were as fitful as a long winter's dream. i'm refreshed, i'm awake, and for the first time in about three years, i'm actually excited to be going to work today.

of course, most of that probably has to do with the fact that today is my only day of work this week, for i'll be going on leave tonight at midnight and not returning until sunday at midnight. excellent.

i'm working on a long post about my ptsd (post-traumatic stress disorder), the causes, and what happens when you get diagnosed with ptsd in the army, including descriptions of drugs and the effects said drugs can have on reality. i want to make sure i do it right, though, so i'll probably hold off posting it until the end of the week.

I look forward to reading what you have to say. Several of my "adopted" Soldiers are just home..and some more are to come home in the early Fall.

Have a great weekend.

Thank you for your service.
