I'm a combat disabled US Marine. I served in the 22nd MAU 83-84, Grenada and Beirut. I was hit by a mortar that left me without the use of my right arm and hand and with massive health issues and PTSD.  I'm struggling with my weight as I'm a diabetic with high blood pressure induced by stressful situations. I'm trying to move to Texas for my health, as the shrapnel hurtsless than it does in cold, rainy Oregon. And Oregon hates veterans and that is stressful trying to hide my disabilities from "people" who hate me for no other reason than being a disabled veteran.
I'm looking for ways to manage all this and maintain good mental health at the same time.
God Bless
