Why wear a ribbon?

  "My husband died as a result of PTSD, from serving in Vietnam." (writer25)

MDJunction to me

Hazey420"When I found MDJ I was in a point in my life that I thought would never happen to me My ex-boyfriend of 20 years left me he said that "He was done taking care of me" I have had FMS since 1995 and he knew that and now since I have gotten older it has gotten worse. He met someone online who in fact is not sick and moved out of my life and to florida to be with her.I lost everything I had my house, my friends, myself as I thought. One day I came upon MDJ looking for some sort of support and noticed the FMS forums and knew that I could help people knowing that I have had it for so long and there are allot of us out there who have and no one understands us when we speak of the pain that we are in. The forum and the great friends I have met and made here, They make us smile with their comments when we are in the worst pain of our lives, they make us laugh when we dont feel like laughing, they make us talk when we dont feel like talking, just to let others know how WE all feel, they care of us when we feel no one out there does care, and they help us get through the days when we cant get out of bed. They also make us feel like we are not alone when we feel that are. I dont know how I would of gotten through the changes that have been going on with my life without them. That is what MDJ means to me." (Hazey420)
