Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place. I Guess Just Do What Ever They Want To Because They Can, But Don't Give A Sh T For The Vets That Suppose To Being Supporting From All The Military  organizations. This Is Not The Way They Have Been Trained And Promised To Do.

@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

I'm not sure where to go. My last deployment was when I was on active duty 3 years ago, I have since become an drilling reservist. The symptoms I have are nightmares(I don't remember many , but my wife says I yell in my sleep, sometimes in Arabic. I have even threatened her in my sleep), irritability, a few drinks to help go to sleep, and hyper-vigilance/jumpy startle easy(I always thought it was because we are trained to be vigilant, but someone told me it is a symptom). I was asleep last night when my wife came home from work, she set her keys on the dresser, I jumped out of bed with my heart racing. So I decided to post here.

I don't want any sort of compensation or claim for it, I just want to know if I need to see someone about it. The things keeping me from seeing someone are 1) VA is 1.5 hours away, 2) I don't want the chance of being passed over for re-enlistment, 3) I don't want people to know, especially the people I work with.

I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong place. I'm just not sure what to do.

Below is a link for the Vet Centers.
You can go there and talk with someone.
They are located away from the VA Medical Centers.
What you talk about is confidential.

You can see if a Vet Center is close to you for Arkansas at this link:

By all means file a claim for compensation. Once you seek treatment you will understand the disorder better. The Vet Center also have help for your family if they need it.

You need to seek help ASAP...Your symptoms will only get worse if not treated....As previuosly suggested find a vet center or go to the VA...No one needs to know except you and your counselor...I denied having PTSD for many years until I was almost suicidal due to fighting the symptoms....Now thanks to counseling and meds from the VA I am functioning better and family life at home is better...This will not go away alone....My advice is to seek help and the sooner the better...If there is no vet center close and the VA is too far away do an online search for a local PTSD support group.Many cities offer them and they are not connected to the VA....I hope this helps you out and I pray that you find some help and relief...........................................Grid

Trying to keep it hush hush is not helping you or your wife. What is more important? Going back into active duty or your marriage? Seek treatment asap before something happens that you can't take back.

Welcome to Hadit, Jav, hope you have been considering you options, not getting treatment is risky I know. Please look at what I will say is the big picture, your health.
