I'm the wife of a Combat Medic that served three tours in Vietnam from 68-70, then continued in the Army until 1986.
Now, without the draft, they're sending our Troops back for 6 & 7 tours of duty! It's just insane!
I agree with pointman ~ and I'm so glad for you and your husband that you have the trust, love, and patience to address & get thru the PTSD diagnosis and treatment. Peace & Respect ~ Woshi
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi! I am a wife of Vietnam Vet who has PTSD and does take BP meds also. Some of the meds for his PTSD does lower BP, but his is so out of control it doesn't affect him. Tell your hubby welcome home and Thank you for his service. To you, Thank you for your service as a wife to one of our troops. I know that deployment involves the whole family. I'm new to this forum here, so it will take me some time to get the hand of it...
