My significant other is in the army and was shot about 6 months ago,he is a Medic.He was diagnosed with PTSD,Anxiety,Paranoia,and Depression about 4-5 months ago,it's a huge struggle.He will be coming home very soon and I'm worried that he will have anger issues as well as having obsession.When we talk on the webcam,our conversations are mostly negative because he hates being 3,500 miles away from home and what he went through.He seems very angry and paranoid especially when I go out or not answer his calls every time.I suffer alot and it is pushing me away from him,it's alot to handle with my own issues too.I don't know what to do,he is seeking help,but it's not going well.Please give some advice for me please!
is there someone in the Army you can talk to about this as they would know what resuorces you could get hold of? A Chaplain, social worker? psyche? Liaison Officer? or is there a support group amoungst the wives? or a wife who you can trust to talk to about this?
