  • Bryan "SEZ" Singer responded to a letter in group Mental Health 1 month ago

    Thanks! Because of my past I have very good coping mechanisms and techniques for dealing with a known source of trauma, depression, stress, or anxiety. A lot of it came from counselors during my firefighting days and from family and friends who had been there and done that. But ai was completely at a loss for what do do when the source was unknown.

    Thanks Shelley! I am definitely glad we have been able to connect and get to know each other a bit in recent years! My work has genuinely been my pleasure and honor, and it is a major relief that I did not have to choose between my work and my health in this case.

    • Bryan,

      First I thank you for your service. My family’s history is synonymous with service to the military so I know how important your service is.
