Default Thoughts and Prayers for my Cousin and military member

The thread on not thanking military members gave me boost to post this.

My cousin, who I was very close with, is going through a very hard time. And I know it's something many military members and vets go through.

She served time in Afghanistan in the marines. Two tours I believe. I can't recall exactly what her rank was, or what exactly she did there (I don't follow military jargon, so I don't remember exactly what she was doing)...but she was there doing her duty.

She came back with PTSD and some physical problems. I don't know what happened, she hasn't told anyone (except maybe her therapist). The VA she was going to prescribed her Percocet for the physical pain she was in. They prescribed her 180 pills to start with...more than any normal prescription would call for. She became addicted (don't know what they thought would happen with someone with mental and physical issues would do). She started stealing from family members and friends to feed this addiction. Her grandmother (not on my side) pressed charges on her for stealing her bank card and withdrawing money. We are all just so worried for her. This isn't who she is.

She is in rehab right now. And I just ask that thoughts, prayers, and general good energy be passed along to her and all of those who are fighting their struggles after coming home. Please donate to charities for veterans and active duty soldiers if you can, and volunteer if you are able. Nothing says thank you more than being a part of someone's recovery.

We are just sick to death about what is going on with her. And I know that so may military members come home with the same issues. It's one thing to thank them face to face...it's another to recognize what they are going though and help with that. Please take the time and money (if you have it) to help those who are suffering.

Thanks for the post SCM. My thoughts and prayers go out to your cousin. It's not fair that somebody who gave so much is in so much pain physically and mentally. I pray for her recovery.

Thank you HAM...she needs so much help right now. She was such a bright soul and she just came back different. We are all just worried sick for her, and others in the same position. My hope is that people think beyond what is done on the battlefield. What these folks go though is worlds beyond that.

I'm sorry to hear this Mom. My heart goes out to your cousin, you, and your family. It's sad to see things like this happen to such brave and noble people willing to sacrifice and fight for our way of life. They deserve much better from our country and our leaders. I hope she gets the help she needs and gets well.

Thank you guys, it means a lot. It's been hard on the whole family, but we are just so scared for her. It helped just talking about it a little last night.

It kills me to know this is happening to good people who care about our country enough to risk their lives for it. Prayers & well wishes to your cousin and family, Amy.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her and the many more like her. It sicken's me that any of our military veterans do not freely get the physical and mental help they need from our government when they return from duty! Our government can find money for any number of stupid ass shit, but we can't take care of the very people who risk their lives protecting our freedom? It's time we all stand up and say enough is enough and DEMAND that they be taken care of properly. We can find all kinds of money for the lazy ass bums who don't want to contribute to our society.
