  • Are Your relationships troubled?
  • Why is my son, daughter,husband, wife and dad, So  Uptight?
  • When we are on the road, they are Angry at everyone all the time, yelling at people for no logical reason.
  • They never seem to smile or laugh any more.  They are NO fun to be around any more.
  • WE USED TO BE ‘such a close family’, now there’s hardly any communication.

“It seems as if they would be better off with out ME”!

  • “I don’t belong here any more”, “I’m just dragging everyone DOWN”!
  • “NO ONE ELSE UNDERSTANDS WHAT I’M GOING THROUGH”!
  • “THE ONLY PLACE I FELT ALIVE WAS OVER THERE”.
  • “IT’S AS IF I DON’T HAVE ANY FEELINGS ANY MORE. THE MEDICINE THE VA GIVES ME IS TURNING ME INTO A WALKING ZOMBIE”.
  • “I JUST WANT TO BE LIKE I USED TO BE! WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME”?

What are the answers? Is this my ‘New Normal’?. You are not crazy,this is normal.

Everyone who comes back at sometime or other will feel as you do. The crazy thing is not seeking help learning how to live with in your new norm so you can again have the joy you once had in a more mature and appericative way After all All Wonds are not Visble

We all recognize some one who has an obovies wond from war and afford them do concideration and time to rebuild their life to their New Norm.

Each of us who grow up in the U.S. has  an American set of Values, Principles and standers that ours, soley based on our background, of where we came from. When we join the Military we are trained, to a new set of values, principles and standerds You may have seen an Army Values Pledge coin. This would Give each family member a blue print of the person who we sent off to War.

The world of war has a profound and life changeing affect on everyone who experiences it and NO ONE COMES HOME UNCHANGED!

This is not outside our Creator’s design or controll. Survival is the strongest thread in all life forms on earth. Somewhere in your war experience you have felt that your life was in such peril that death was the most likely outcome. This is no different than when a deer is chased by a wolf or a gazelle who escapes the jaws of a Lion. You, like them, have lived through a life threatening event, our Creator has built into our brain, a survival network that changes how we see, sense and perceive danger.

Your very thought processes have been re orderd to insure your survival and Safety. Sadly, the medical profession labels this natural phenomonon as a disorder, (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), instead of a natural reordering of the thought process. The GOOD NEWS is, there is life and joy after war!

Point Man was founded by people just like you who have found ways through faith to navigate  the mine field of life.
