Another day in the life of a mom of a disable Iraq vet.

good Morning- had a fabulous day yesterday. I was given the time to relax. I watched the day of horses races that happens on the Thursday before Derby on Saturday. I am going to continue with watching more today. I have been doing this since childhood. I had a grandfather who was into horses. I do not gamble but I can detox from stress watching the horses. It is a luxury that I love but due to scheduling or not being access to the channel - I watch the Derby but none of the pre-show stuff. This year, we have HULU - streaming & I have the channel. I am relaxing my knee at the same time.
But last night as I was relaxing watching a baseball game with DH. I got a text from my son. I think he had a PTSD episode. The text was not lucid. I did not confront him yet. I have decided to go back to the PTSD counselor I used when he first got home. Yesterday I got the feeling that he was triggered by his wife having issues with her mother. I have learned to not intervene or solve his problems and then I get caught into his web of things I do not understand or need to know. I just turned on a movie called "A Private War'- it is about a war correspondent and her PTSD issues. My biggest wish is that his PTSD issues get solved - he saw things in Iraq no 19 should. I have also learned that some day - I will lose him if he can't get a handle on his issues. He told me that he is in counseling but I never know if he will drop out again when it gets too tough. any ways for today- I am back focused on me to continue my program. Have a good day!
