Making the Invisible, Visible

Posted by invisiblecounselor on February 27, 2012

Speaking from experience, I think that men can sometimes be misunderstood and unable to communicate verbally their inner thoughts. I think that with this inability to communicate they sometimes get the short end of the stick when it comes to women who are more verbal and more emotional.  This added with their veteran status makes help seem invisible.  I want to provide these veterans a place to go where their hurt, pain, anger, and depression can be visible, as visible as I am.  It’s amazing to hear some of the stories of men as talk about their wives, the love and admiration they have for them, it’s amazing to hear hurt and pain when those wives have decided that they can’t take it anymore.  What do they do?  Where do they go from here?  Who can they seek out?  Will the VA understand how deep this pain flows?  Will anyone understand the feeling of being punched in the gut when you sign those divorce papers?  Will anyone understand the inner feelings of loneliness?  Help is not invisible, it’s tangible, you can talk it out.  We would like to offer a place where we can communicate with each and every one of you who can relate to these questions, who could not answer these questions.  Tell us your story.
