    I have been lurking on here for the past several months. I have yet to formally introduce myself. I am an Iraq veteran diagnosed with PTSD and major depressive disorder. I tried to commit suicide once. It was not planned but on impulse. Obviously and unfortunately, it did not work.

    I am having an extremely difficult time today because this is my family's first Father's Day without Dad. I am grateful that at least I got to see him, after my Iraq tours, before he passed away. He passed away a year and almost four months ago. Yet, I think about him everyday.

    I hope that some of you, if not all, are doing at least somewhat better than I am. I wish everyone of the best of everything.

    Thank you for reading this.

    :welcome: to the forum. I wish to thank you for the sacrifice you made for your country and the people that live here. Thanks is hardly enough. I remember how difficult my first father's Day was without my Dad. It was a day filled with tears because of how much I missed him. It has been 4 years now and although it really has not gotten easier I am able to deal with my feelings better. I hope we are able to offer you the semblance of support you need to make the coming days better. Take care. :hug:
