    glad you have come out on the other side and are running now, too.

    Peace to all, may the good memories stack up and smother the bad. It is possible.
    Yes!

      have a friend here who was a door gunner. The Federal Flood here in NOLA really brought out his PTSD, but it's regressed back to a fairly manageable point. I wish these memories did not embed so thoroughly. It helped me when I found out that our brains are wired to remember frightening and sad events more than happy ones, for survival.

      Best to you.
