Fabulous documentary on HBO

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Good Morning; I know this will come to DVD in the future. I just watched a documentary on HBO "Crisis Hotline". It is about the Vets that are in crisis and how the help line 1-800-273-8255 press 1 Veterans Crisis line tries very hard to help them. They are in the front lines for the vets in crisis. What it did for me?
It gave me an understanding of what the responders on this help line assist these Vets and other military in need. I wish I had seen this months ago. If any one has a vet that needs help and you are a family member who has a vet or military member in need- this documentary is very, helpful. emoticon My DS has a ways to go, but I have hope. For the loved ones of these people, we feel hopeless at times. These responders in this film are fabulous. It gives me reassurance that I am not alone and DS is not alone with his problems. TG got for these responders. We need more when you see the statistics of suicide of these people. My DS has affected my program on many levels. It is a challenge when you are an emotional eater. For today, I am focused on my program and will be going to the gym soon. Have a good day.

    So glad your DS has the hotline. It's just too bad it came so late. My BIL suffered with horrible PTSD after his 8 years of Viet Nam.I do hope you wring everything and every bit of help you can from them. Utilize any and all programs possible. Your son I have already figured out is a very soft hearted young man, and deserves a chance for a happy life. I truly hope that the next woman he comes across is good, and true, and will deserve him.

    I am not an emotional eater, if I was I'd be in real trouble. Actually I don't eat a lot, I am just inactive, sedentary is a better term. I'm fighting that. I ordered a step reebok step platform and 2 videos. I'll get them Wednesday. I intend to place it in front of my TV despite DH hollering about it, and continue to force myself to use the treadmill daily or at least as much as I can tolerate.

    I have a gym membership, I need a spark or a really huge bomb lit under me before I will go. I'd rather climb into my warm bed, and some days I do just that.

    I am cheering you on to the gym!! Kudos to you for just doing it!! I'm always feeling happy when I read that you went anyways. I think in all the stuff you have dealt with in the past year or so that you really deserve a medal for sticking it out and being there for your son, DH and GDs. You have a good heart, and a good healthy plan, and you sticking to it most days is a win win situation. YOU CAN DO THIS!! Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and walk on toward your goals of each day. One day at a time!

    So thankful that we were able to find the help DS needs in this documentary. Never, never think that you are alone in this journey! We all have our stories. Hopefully, as DS gets better, you'll be back on track! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I do not have HBO, but will watch for it, it sounds like it should also be on PBS, that is our channels of choice
    I do understand this emotional eating, I think we all have a problem with this, I would love to be one of these people who get nervous or excited or whatever about things, and just can't eat a bite, if it is in front of me, I eat it mindlessly.

    Thanks for this information. I really appreciate it.

    Challenges definitely make it difficult for emotional eating. But you are wise and have your plan and work it. That helps tremendously.
