I recently came back from Iraq about 4 months ago. Ever since i got back i had a hard time adjusting back to civlian life. Sometimes at night when i
sleep, I get nightmares about being over there. Most of the time i hear gunshots and automatic fire and people screaming. Sometimes i even see 9/11
happening over and over again then i see myself with my squad buddies. One night i drempt of myself in nightvision seeing the battles happening over
and over again. I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep for the whole night. I just sat there staring at my wall.
Back in iraq, our squad lost 3 of our guys in total. One of them KIA during a fire fight, one died from an explosion in a village the other one died
on his way home on a helicopter that was shot down by an RPG.
These nightmares just keep on happening. Is there anyway i can stop it and return to my life. I feel as if i've been scarred for life by the war.
Any other veterans of any war have this problem too?
