Bump for LW:kiss::kiss::kiss::kiss::kiss:



I can email her a link to this thread. This was really nice of you.






Added December 18, 2010
This thread has gotten very long and newcomers coming in here may not know what it is about. For that reason I am quoting an accounting of what happened to Lone_Wolfe here. She told it in the third person here in this post and I have permission to do copy it here.

*Sgt Wolfe was at base in Afghanistan and needed to get to a remote base with some computer equipment she was sent to install and configure. She went to the flight line (a sandy clearing) on the morning she was supposed to fly, and waited for the choppers while BS’ing with some others at the base. Finally an E-4 walks over and tells the group that one of the birds had mechanical trouble and was deadlined. The next flight was a few days out. Wolfe grumbled a few choice words and started to take her duffel bag and IBA back to the tent she’d been staying in. A Captain walked up and asked what base Wolfe needed to go to and when she told him he said that if might be possible to send her by convoy. Wolfe explained that she was expressly prohibited from using ground trans. She thought about it for a second and decided to call her commander in Bagram and ask if it would be OK. She got permission to use a secure line and made the call. The first person she asked, the Major, said no, but she asked to speak to the Colonel and was surprised when he relented.

Wolfe reported this back to the Captain who told her to hang around and he would see if he could send the convoy. Wolfe went into the nearest tent that had a coffee pot and made some fresh coffee and waited for the word. A bit later the Cpt walks in and says it’s a go. About then a few more people walk in and pour themselves some liquid ambition. Someone that Wolfe had seen but not spoken to walks up and says “Hi, I’m hitching a ride on your convoy!” Wolfe looks at the senior NCO and thinks he’s nice looking and says “Cool! Which ‘RAP will you be riding in?” Greg answers “Most likely the 2nd one, same as you”. Wolfe says “Even cooler!”, and the 2 walk outside to the staging area to wait and yak.

The convoy team starts to assemble and the convoy commander comes over and identifies himself. While he’s standing there a medic with a cigarette dangling from his mouth walks over. Greg asks if he’s going to be the medic for the convoy and he says he is. Wolfe says “Well, nice to meet you, I don’t intend to need your services” The medic seems arrogant and says “Good, I only slept 3 hours last night and I don’t want to do ****!” as he walks off. The convoy commander says that he’s a real jerk, but by far the best medic in the unit, and has had a lot of training beyond what the Army provides.
Sgt Wolfe, Greg, and another E-6 get more coffee and go hang around by Wolfe’s equipment waiting as the convoy crew readies the vehicles. A couple soldiers come for Wolfe’s 2 cases of equipment and she asks for them to be put on the same vehicle that she’ll be in. They’re not big and the vehicles will be mostly empty so that’s easily accommodated. Finally the convoy commander calls the safety briefing, then tells us we’ll be mounting up in about a half hour. Wolfe goes and gets a sandwich, then it’s time to mount up and roll.

The E-6 that had been talking to Greg and Wolfe bids them a good trip and goes off to do his thing, and everyone climbs in and the convoy rolls out. Wolfe and Greg are in the 2nd of 3 MRAP’s and the sit next to each other in the mostly empty vehicle BS’ing and talking like old friends. It’s a bumpy ride over dirt roads that were planned by goat farmers. The first couple hours of the trip are uneventful.
All of a sudden a loud explosion rocks the 2nd MRAP and it stops. The vehicle design did its job well and no one inside was hurt, although some ears may have been singed by the cloud of cuss words that formed inside. After everyone calmed down and determined that no one was hurt Wolfe and Greg congratulated each other on the rich vocabularies each used when referring to the citizens of Afghanistan. The driver tried unsuccessfully to get the MRAP moving again, and the convoy commander radio that info to the other vehicles. The gunners up top kept watch but couldn’t see anyone around, then the convoy commander ordered the guard force (grunts) to get out and form a perimeter around the vehicles. Instructions were radioed back and forth, then the convoy commander explained to Wolfe and Greg that on his command they were to run to a group of large rocks between the 2 vehicles, then wait for the command to run to the 3rd vehicle and get in.
They both locked and loaded, Greg his pistol, Wolfe her rifle, and ran when told to do so. Greg went 1st, Wolfe a few feet behind. Unknown to anyone there were 2 Afghanis behind some rocks behind the 3rd MRAP, about 50 or so feet from where Greg and Wolfe were running. They both jumped up from behind the cover and opened fire in the direction of the 2 people running. Greg dove behind the rocks, but Wolfe was hit center of the chest by a round in the 1st volley. She was slammed backward and spun around by the force of impact and landed facing back toward the vehicle she had just left. The soldiers on guard and the gunners opened fire and plenty of bullets were traded. Wolfe lost consciousness after about half a minute.

This part I had to piece together based on what I’ve been told by several people. The times may be a little off, but everything else is correct.

Shortly after Wolfe was hit a 3rd Afghani started shooting from a position off to the side between the 2nd and 3rd MRAPs. He was closer to Wolfe and Greg’s location than the 1st 2 shooters and she had fallen out in the open. The fighting went on for another minute or so, and the 1st 2 shooters were eliminated, but the 3rd was staying down enough of the time that the gunners couldn’t take him out. The convoy commander had already stopped the medic from trying to get to Wolfe because he believed she couldn’t be helped. In spite of being close to the remaining Afghani, Greg decided to break cover and try to get to Wolfe to drag her back behind cover so the medic could try to save her. He ran toward her and the remaining shooter opened fire, hitting him several times. He went down and died before anyone could get to him. In shooting Greg the Afghani exposed enough of himself that the soldiers were able to kill him. As soon as the convoy commander declared the threat neutralized the medic ran to Greg, realized he was already gone, then ran to Wolfe and got busy.

OK, now back to what I remember.
Wolfe woke up after about a week, maybe a bit more and was told she was in Germany. Because of her injury she was kept heavily sedated to the point she didn’t even try to move and her memory of the 1st month or so in the hospital is hazy and spotty at best. She doesn’t remember when she heard that SOMEONE died on the mission, but was told about 2 weeks after waking up that it had been Greg. She asked the person who told her that he had died how it happened and was told an untrue story that she suspected even then was false. She didn’t find out the truth until a couple months later.

Lone_Wolfe, whatever it is that's got ya at less than 100%, I am praying for your speedy recovery!:wavey:


I finally emailed her the link so she should come here soon. As to what happened I didn't answer at first because I wasn't sure what she posted about this and wanted to respect her privacy. But I did a search and found these posts from various threads explaining it;

Last December I stopped a round from an AK-47 at close range with my issued body armor. Bullet hit me very center of the chest and the damage it did almost did kill me. I'm still recovering.

When I was hit it took me about 20-30 seconds to black out. During that time I figured I was done for.


Ahh, but that's the best part of a relationship....the feelings of worthlessness and guilt, the narcotic induced mood swings...the randomly breaking **** in the house because of both of the above...

Let's not forget the suicidal thoughts,the sleepless nights, the waking up screaming and crying from the nightmares.....
And I'm living proof that you don't need a spouse to have all of this and more........

I'm going to tell you what happened to me because you should consider the possibility that something like it could happen to you;
I re-enlisted in 06, got called up active in 07, deployed in 08. I was sent to Afghanistan where I was in a convoy that was ambushed. I was injured, one person killed trying to get to me to help me. My injuries are still healing, slowly and I'm dealing with a lot of guilt and PTSD issues because of this.
I didn't tell you this to deter you, but to make sure you and your family are ready for the reality that something very bad could happen to you. Whatever you choose I wish you only the best.

This is old news but her physical and psychological recovery have been slow and painful. If you are so inclined please pray for her and all our other soldiers overseas.

I can't express the gratitude WE have for you to take on this assignment. You are truly a patriot and a warrior in the best sense of the words. Thank you for your sacrifices and for your devotion to America.

I was in service but never had to put my life on the line for my country, as you have. Thank you again and I hope every thing gets better for you, you deserve it.

I salute you!

Hi Steve and everyone. I sure wish I had a place to put a still. I could damn sure use a beer or 20 about now. Might not mix too well with all the meds I'm on right now though. But then it might "enhance" thier effects... :whistling:

It's really good to see all of you too. :wavey:

I actually come around here quite a bit, but almost never feel like talking even though I really miss you folks too. I know that may not make any sense at all, it doesn't to me either but that's what happens. Guess that's the nature of this sort of thing, seeing everything through a haze of pain. Makes my sense of humor go AWOL most of the time.

I wouldn't even have said this much if okie :hearts: hadn't started this thread and Silent Runner hadn't showed it to me. And thank you everyone again for the thoughts and prayers. It really does help.

Good to hear from you, LW. Get better, and get home soon! You ARE missed.

Thoughts and prayers are with you, LW.

As the daughter-in-law of an honored service man, for whom I have/had great love and respect, your service and sacrifice is duly noted, appreciated, mentioned, and remembered. I have a dear friend who will ship out to Afghanistan in mid-Aug. He has a wife and a teen-age son. He is also a tremendous mentor to our students and an inspiration to all our faculty. You are in my thoughts and prayers daily, even though I don't know you. You and my father-in-law are the reason I approach personnel in uniform and tell them I appreciate their service, even though I normally don't approach strangers. Get well soon, Come home soon and MOST IMPORTANTLY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVCE!:patriot:

If you folks want a prime example of Military Intelligence here’s one for you…. I had minor surgery on my ankle yesterday morning early. But here's the rub... Last week I had a couple things happen that aggravated my chest injury real bad. So when I tried to use crutches I couldn't. lol But they didn't even want to consider that before fixing the ankle. Luckily I can move around a bit today with just the brace on. A very little bit, but I can get to the ****ter with only 1 person helping.

You just got to laugh……

Stay strong and my best wishes and prayers go out to you for a quick and complete recovery.

Hi Berto :wavey:

Nothing amazing about me, although my Doc insists it's amazing that I'm not fertilizing daisies.

May your recovery be complete and soon ma'am. Give the cats a scratch behind the ears for all of us.:wavey:


Thanky skidoo. Wish I could scratch my kitties. Unfortunately they're about 9 time zones away. I'm worried about the one that has cancer. :crying:

BFE....I'll tell ya all about it when you come to SA for a beer or 10...Our COP was about the size of a small (think pre super days_) Wal-Mart. There was our Scout section, some ODA guys, some Canadian artillery guys, and the medics that were attached to us...There was nothing else within 100km that even resembled a FOB....Every once in a while the CA people would come through and we'd catch a glimpse of the mythical caucasion female...:rofl:

Oh damn. I know of a couple COPs like that in Afghanistan. Of course I never got to see them. Well I did get a glimpse of one from the inside of a Chinook. But then I wasn't supposed to leave Bagram. I'll bet even an old broad like me would have been a welcome sight where you were. :rofl:

And I'm working on the getting better part.

Hi Bumpadrum, thank you for your comments and prayers.

I agree about the body armor, I'd be worm food without it. I almost got to that be anyway. I always thought if the armor did it's job I would just end up with some broken ribs and bruises. Boy was I wrong!

It was easy to tell from reading your post that you've been through something like, even if you hadn't mentioned your PH. Most people don't understand so well the psychological aspect quite like we can. I hope and pray that you were able to make a complete recovery.

In your dire straights it shows what a good person you truly are to express concern for an old grunt like me.

Thank you. Even though it has been 41 years I believe I have finally recovered, though I still walk with a limp and get a little check every month.

Your responses in this thread make me confident you will never fall into the pits that I did.

20 years of complete insanity, with extreme self-medication and the belief that violence will correct every perceived injustice and personal slight, followed by another decade and a half of diminishing psychological challenges still based in substance abuse and the thought that non-violence never solved anything.

The only thing that saved me is the Love of GOD expressed through the sacrifice of Jesus.

You clearly have a lot of support here and probably could go on a "Welcome Home" tour and drink free beer for a year. The leg humping might get a little tedious, though. Hang tough Sister, you're gonna be fine.

And the good news is that you will eventually overcome your aversion to the AK.

Special thanks to Okie for starting this thread.

Hi Bumpadrum, I had to think about your post for a while. I don't think I'm that good of a person. These last several months it's been hard to see past my own world to the people around me. In fact I think I'm kinda selfish a lot of the time lately.

I've spent the last few months trying to fight the insanity and blackness that you speak of. It seems like a battle that can't be won. When I see that you went through through 20 years of it I wonder how you ever survived it. I know that I would not be able to stand it. Truthfully I wouldn't even try. The mood swings I'm having these days are scary at times. Other times I seem OK, and can even come in here and joke around. And read posts like yours that pick me up.

It gives me hope when I see someone like who has come out of it and is OK now. I'm really glad you are for your own sake, too.

I definitely wouldn't mind meeting a bunch of GT'ers and even drinking a load of beer, but none of them owe me free beer. Except maybe Zombie Steve because he makes homebrew. I can deal with the leghumping, it's an old joke. I used to collect guns and whenever I bought another one I'd post pics of it. I could guess how well the guys on this forum liked it by how many marraige proposals that gun earned. Of course I'd hope to collect on some hugs.

If getting over my aversion to AK's means being around them I'd rather pass. I saw the business ends and the muzzles flashes from the 2 of them being fired at me and I don't think I'll ever forget that split second that seems to last eternity.

Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. Here's a :patriot: and a :hugs: for you too.

Hi there :wavey:

I'm working on the getting better part. I've actually had several setbacks in recent weeks. I'm trying to get back on track now, hopefully.

My shrink is trying to get me yanked out of here. If she has her way I'll be on a plane within 2 weeks. If she doesn't I may be here 2-3 more months. They have me doing nothing these days, just sitting in a room staring at a server. I guess it will get up and walk away if I don't watch it closely. :upeyes:

LW, sweetie, a hero never thinks of themselves as a hero. They always say, hey I just did what anyone else would have done. I have seen instances, where a lot of people, just stood and watched, while 1 or 2 people swung into action. You are one of the people that will swing into action. Therefore you are a HERO whether you think so or not.

Don't worry about when you get home. We will still be here for you, and Silent_Runner is not going to give you any trouble. If she tries to give you any trouble, she will have to deal with me. :shocked: If I can't handle it by myself, I will call okie for reinforcements. I think with okie and myself, both being little fellas, we can handle it. :wow:


Take care and stay safe.

I don't care what you say. You are still my hero!:notworthy::perfect10::hugs:



I still don't think I'm a hero when all I did was run for cover when I was told to.



Or tried to run for cover that is......


But thank you and I'll sure take the :hugs: and give some :hugs: back.

Lone_Wolfe, anyone willing to serve our country, in the name of freedom, is a hero. There's no getting around it.

You and all members of the military, past present and future, deserve that distinction.

Accept it with honor. It's yours.

:dunno:

Lemme see, some of my favorite beers are Thomas Creek Doppelbach, Old Nimbus Monkeyshine, New Belgium 1554. I also like Guiness Draught.


That's all I can remember at the moment. Does that give you an idea?

You know it's not the guns you have to worry about. I won't shoot you. I'll just stick a needle in you.

Hell I'm tired of getting hurt!

And why not stick a needle in me. Everyone else does!!! :shocked:

I made a black lager a few batches back (in the vein of 1554). Used paradise seed instead of finishing hops. Turned out great.

I've never made a bock beer, but my old man used to make a doppelbock that would knock you off the barstool. I started brewing when he died, and have his recipe book, but no doppelbock :crying:. I could wing it, though...

Lone_Wolfe,
You are truly an American Hero!! You had the courage to enlist and defend this great country and that in itself is enough to constitute a hero in my book!! Thank You for what you have done!!!

You and every member of the armed forces deserve a Hero's thank you that would make the michale jackson media circus pale in comparison !!

God Bless you and prayers for a speedy recovery!!

If you are ever in Fort Collins, Colorado, stop by New Belgium Brewery for a 1554 on me. My brother is an engineer there and he has a couple five cold 1554's for you !!!:cool:

Well, L_W, guess it is time for me to weigh in.

You've been in prayers for a long time and always will be.

It warms my heart and brings tears to my eyes seeing the outpouring of love and caring here in this thread. You earned it all by paying a heavy price, but you know that. Accept all the adulations. They are heartfelt.

Real warriors never think anything they do in war is that special. It's just doing the job. Years later someone might say something that triggers the "OMG, I did that!?!", and you finally have to accept the fact that what you did may just have been something a little out of the ordinary. But, still, you shrug and say, "Shucks, I was just doing what I needed to do." It took 40 years for someone to convince me. I just say, "Well, I guess I was really crazy back then."

Let me know if I can do anything for you.

XOXOXO

Actually Russ it's brought a tear to my eye several times over. This last several weeks have been the worst for me in terms of the nightmares and the demons in my head.

Just kidding Buki192327. Lone_Wolfe and I have been real world friends for almost 20 years. If I do stick a needle in her it would contain something to help her, never to hurt her.

I know it sounds childish, but it really helped me for some reason....I've got my lil stuffed dog that was given to me when I was about 2...still sleep with her every now and then when I'm having a bad night....if you don't have anything over there, send me your APO and I'll find something for you....

You know, it may sound silly, but whatever it takes to get you through the dark times... For me, after the attack many years ago that ultimately led to my decision to carry a firearm, the worst of the nightmares lasted over a year. At the darkest times, when I couldn't sleep, and I reacted as if any person behind me was about to stick a knife in my back, my saving mantra was "You can't let them win." I'd say that over and over to myself, and just keep fighting it until the next day, and then the next day, and then the next...

I wish I could just give you a great big hug :crying:

I *promise* you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, though it may be a hard slog... Just keep fighting, giving yourself just one more day. That's the only battle you have to win- one more day.

You keep doing that, every damn day, and you *will* come out the other side in one piece. :grouphug:

Silent_Runner, I figured from some of the posts, that you 2 were real good friends. I knew that you would never do anything to hurt Lone_Wolfe. You 2 remind me of myself and a real good friend (old WWII vet), close to 40 years. We jab the needle at each other, just to keep each other going. It is so great when friends can do that.

Wow, 10 years of feeling like this is not something to look forward to. Yes, it is the worst part. I think the physical injuries would be a lot closer to healed if not for the psychological part.

I'd have never thought of a stuffed animal. Does make a bit of sense though. I spend a lot of time looking at the Caturday thread and I keep pics of my kitties up on my laptop whenever I can. Something about furry critters I guess....

That okie dude, is a pretty smart fella!!

LW, sweetie, you CANNNOT GIVE UP!!! If you give up, you will not be able to go on tour. I would not be able to give you the :hugs: that I owe you, okie would not be able to give you the :kiss: that he owes you, and you would miss out on all of the free beer. Sweetie, there are a lot of people that want to meet you and THANK YOU, personally for what you have done, for us. YOU keep your spirits up, and know that a lot of us are praying for your continued recovery, safety and well being, and will continue to do so.

LW, you have been a real blessing for us. Prayers for you and all of your brothers and sisters in arms.



Silent_Runner, I figured from some of the posts, that you 2 were real good friends. I knew that you would never do anything to hurt Lone_Wolfe. You 2 remind me of myself and a real good friend (old WWII vet), close to 40 years. We jab the needle at each other, just to keep each other going. It is so great when friends can do that.

I just want to know, who is going to chaffeur LW around the country, when she goes on her tour?


This post has been so hard to read. I can't get through it without still more tears. I know how wrong and selfish it is to even think about giving up. Sometimes it's hard to push those thoughts away when they take hold of me, but when I think of things like what you are saying here it helps in some way. The beer isn't important, it's the people. Not just people I know in RL, but you people here. So many of you that I want to meet now to thank in person for the prayers and support. :grouphug: I won't be able to do that if I give up now.















Okie is pretty smart isn't he? And he's got to be one of the nicest people on the planet. So are you. :hugs: Silent_Runner is a pretty good friend. But she actually does have needles and isn't afraid to use them. She's also jerked a knot in my ass a few times in the last couple months. I figured I needed/deserved it.

You know, she would make a good designated driver...... :couch:

Wow, I totally missed all this until now! I'm gonna make everyone jealous and point out the fact that I've actually met LW...

We arranged to meet - she'd bring the money, I'd bring the guns. That sort of thing. Cool night for Phoenix, too cool. Something was up. I drove past the parking lot twice to check things out (I was lost). Found the place, pulled in. There she was - standing like 5'4" of trouble under the single light in the parking lot.

"You *'Lone Wolfe'?

"Yeah. You *'BWPhoto'?

"I might be. You got the money?

"Lets see the hardware.

Like Tuco in a lonely hardware store, she proceeds to check out my SP101. Listening to the cylinder spin, working the action, etc... I flip through stacks of unmarked, nonconsecutive $20s. They smelled as real as the cold steel hidden at my 4 o'clock.

We agree on the deal and she opens the trunk of her high performance Mustang. No doubt that kind of HP making the trek through the desert to her hideout a high-speed joyride. It was unsettling to see how expertly she fit an 'arsenal' into the trunk - my former SP101 fitting neatly amongst rifles, more pistols, etc...

Convinced everything was as legit as it could ever be, I stuffed the cash deep into my pockets, wished LW luck with the new-to-her shooter and took off... Starting to rain, I wondered if our paths would ever cross again.

* names changed to protect the guilty!


====

Here's to a speedy recovery LW! I hope that .357 is still treating you well :) Thanks for your service to all of us and our country - I know that I and everyone on this board appreciate it immensely and are here for you if you need anything.

That's about the funniest description of a FTF gun sales I've ever read. Pretty accurate too, including the height, I am 5'4". Thanks bwphoto, I needed a good laugh today and you sure served one up :thumbsup:





And thank you for the kind offer and well-wishes. A friend of mine took all my guns for now, to include the 357, but will give them back to me when I'm ready for them. So it's in good hands and will remain that way. :wavey:

You know, it may sound silly, but whatever it takes to get you through the dark times... For me, after the attack many years ago that ultimately led to my decision to carry a firearm, the worst of the nightmares lasted over a year. At the darkest times, when I couldn't sleep, and I reacted as if any person behind me was about to stick a knife in my back, my saving mantra was "You can't let them win." I'd say that over and over to myself, and just keep fighting it until the next day, and then the next day, and then the next...

I wish I could just give you a great big hug :crying:

I *promise* you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, though it may be a hard slog... Just keep fighting, giving yourself just one more day. That's the only battle you have to win- one more day.

You keep doing that, every damn day, and you *will* come out the other side in one piece. :grouphug:




I read this yesterday and have been thinking about it all day. This may be the best advice of all, one more day, just one more day. I've been looking at next week, next month, next year and it's too much to deal with right now. But just one day I think I can deal with.

I've told myself so many times I can't let those Afghani ****stains win. That I can't let my comrade's death and a lot of medic's and doctor's hard work be in vain. That would be so wrong. So I won't let those bastards win today. Thank you RottnJP.

I wish you could give me a hug too, and I could give you one back. I'm glad to see you came out OK on the other side. Maybe I will too. :hugs:

08-16-2009, 17:19
Lone_Wolfe, when you start feeling that way, you need to stop thinking that and think about all the people that care about you. You are more than just another stranger on the Internet to me. Knowing that you're there and suffering for people like myself breaks my heart. I'm glad Okie started this thread and hope that it helps you cope with what you're going through. Please, never give up!



It just always amazes me how we can grow to care about someone we've never met and maybe never will. Before I came here I didn’t think that was possible, but now I’ve experienced it in both directions. Do you folks have any idea how hard it is to type with tears streaming down your face? I do, because that’s what I’m doing now. Good thing I use spell-check. Reading stuff like this does help me cope. It helps me see that this will all be worth it in the end.

Thank you Magnus2131

I am glad, and honored, that some part of my experience can help you get through yours...

If you think about it, there are variations of that theme common to many cultures/philosophies. You may enjoy digging into the philosophical angles a bit, and run with whichever version resonates best with you... How do you climb the temple with one thousand stairs? One stair at a time. What is the hardest part of a journey of a thousand miles? The next step.

In general, one part that sticks with me, and is helpful for me to keep in mind during all sorts of challenges, is the idea that it is only your choices in the current moment that truly matter... The past is done, and the future will be what it will be, based on the sum-total of our choices, and a whole lot of other factors. Our choice any given moment is the only thing we truly control.

As I've heard it put another way- The past is set, you can not change it. But, any given moment you can choose to create a new future.

Anyway, enough philosophy for now- don't want to bore everyone with my dorkiness. :supergrin:

I'm still chuckling over the " 5'4" of trouble " story, by the way... :cool:

Hi B. Somm, good to see you again. I'm really sorry to hear about your friend. :crying:

Yes, I definitely have PTSD and nightmares. Right now the nightmares own me. I think they have jockeys and trainers. The only good thing about them is that most of them are a recurring theme and my shrink is convinced she knows what's causing them. So if I can deal with one issue, and I'm trying to, then I'll be able to send at least some of those nags to the glue factory.

The hard part is accepting and coming to terms with what happened. I'm not doing well in that area, in part because the constant nightmares have my resolve weakened so much.


"keep on keeping on"! I'm doing just that one day at a time. :wavey:

I’m still among the living folks. That’s a good thing….. I think. As to why I disappeared for almost a week, well, I’ll just say it wasn’t planned. I’ve spent most of the past week in Lost and Found at the base hospital.

The pushers (docs) here have had me on various combos of anti-depressants, pain pill and sleep aids for months. Most of the pills they’ve given me didn’t like me at all and certainly didn’t like each other. So combine yet another reaction to the meds and the fact that I was getting maybe 3 hours sleep on a good night due to the nightmares and I was losing touch with reality.

Long story short in the early morning hours of what I think was Thursday I found myself at the hospital. The doc decided to sedate me so I could detox from all the pills and finally get some rest. Yep, I was drugged to get me off drugs…. Go figure. But now I’m off the happy pills and the narcotic pain and sleep pills. I still have those damn nightmares hanging around, but hopefully I can deal with them a little better without all the crap in my system making them worse. And at least for the moment I’m well rested. We’ll see how long that lasts.

I truly appreciate your continued prayers. I’m doing my best to live up to them.

Wolfe

Zonny, a few days ago a medic came to me and told me someone had dropped off a box at the hospital for me. I asked him if I could have it and he unwrapped and handed me the softest robe I’ve ever felt. It was so nice I balled it up and cuddled it like it was a kitty. It stayed glued to me except when the doc took it away to examine me. After which I made him give it right back. Thank you so much. and thank you in advance for my stuffed kitty. You are way too nice to me. :hugs:

I asked him if I could have it and he unwrapped and handed me the softest robe I’ve ever felt. It was so nice I balled it up and cuddled it like it was a kitty. It stayed glued to me except when the doc took it away to examine me. After which I made him give it right back. Thank you so much. and thank you in advance for my stuffed kitty. You are way too nice to me. :hugs:

You're most welcome Lone_Wolfe. Thank you for allowing me to somehow aid in your healing. :hugs:

LOL! Now which spot is *that* dare I ask? :wow:

You guys need a room already! :embarassed:

Ummmmmmmm, considering that I posted previously exactly where my injury is could it be that you are just a bit jealous? :whistling:

LW, sorry I'm so late to the thread. :embarassed:

I noticed Silent Runner's pics of your guns and that led me here.

I would have seen it much earlier, but I very rarely visit GNG.

My hope is for your speedy recovery. :wavey:


Thanks bac. Yep, I gave her my gun collection. Trouble is she doesn't know how to take her own pics so I felt sorry for her and gave her my pics too... :upeyes:

Don't feel bad about never getting over here. I don't go to you side of the world either. But it's good to see you again. And thank you.

Kinda funny how you can get LOST in a hospital for days.
Happened to me back in '91 when I got my *** kicked by
kidney stones in the desert. They lost me for three days. :faint:

Ouch! Damn, that had to hurt.

I can't say the hospital lost me, more like I lost my mind. Drug-induced psychosis, my doc says.


Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most...........

Well I was jacked up on Morphine for two of the three days.

How are you doing? Heard about the cozy robe. Are you going to
model it for us?

Morphine... I've gotten to know that stuff well in the last 8+ months. Alond with a whole pharmacy of other stuff.


Wanting me to model the robe, eh? You're getting to be as bad as itisbruno...:whistling:

LW, sweetie you aren't the only one in drug induced psychosis. The POTUS, Senate, and House of Reps, are the same way. :whistling:

Hope your days are going better.

I had kind of a crazy day today. If tomorrow isn't better, I may want to join you, in that drug induced ............ :faint: I don't miss my mind at all. It has been gone for so long, I don't know what it would be like to have a mind again. :rofl:

Prayers for you safety, well being and recovery still inbound. :hugs::hugs:

Keep you spirits up.

Yes you are. :impatient: And quit thinking of that alternative!

Maybe we can turn those army doctors loose on Obama. They might succeed in messing him up too. :whistling:

LW, like we said 1 second, 1 minute, 1 hour at a time, will turn into days, of you feeling better. :cool:

Here are some :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: for you.

Hope you are having a much better day today, sweetie.



Well the seconds, minutes, hours have added up to yet another day that I got through, that I didn't give up. Can't say it's been an easy one, but those Afghani bastards didn't win today.

:hugs: back to everyone
