I'm a Desert Storm vet that has been dealing with issues for a long time. I've done my best to hide everything from everybody. In the process, I've been divorced, remarried, and slowly losing this marriage as well. I'm done ignoring the issues, and have decided to take steps in getting help. I talked to the claims rep for Texas Veterans Commision to file a claim for PTSD. He suggested that go to mental health first, and see what comes of this before filing. I have an appt. with mental health next month. Is this the right path to go down? See mental health, get help, then file claim if needed? He also suggested to go ahead and fill out the form 21-0781, just in case it is needed later. Thanks for any help. Semper Fi!
