I suffer both PTSD from Falklands War & Congestive cardiac failure, Hypertension, sleep disordered breathing, IHD, 2 Inoperable Aneurisms, amongst other co-mordities. I am 62 turning 63 in July and I am a survivor. I have been ill for 33 years non stop but I have learned to cope with most of it but the heart breathing problems are difficult, nevertheless you get on with it and I have a great team of NHS People keeping an eye on me' Tele-health.
I live in my own home, in the sticks (rural) of Northern Ireland where you can see the stars at night, its quiet and the isolation is pure bliss to me. I have never married as I was 26 when the PTSD Got me...still as we used to say in the Navy, if you can't take a joke!! you should never' have joined up.
