Today on Disabled Veteran Radio I will debate The Suicide Prevention Bill That President Obama just signed into Law. The Bill is named after Clay Hunt of Texas, a Marine Corps combat veteran who struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and who killed himself in March 2011 at the age of 28. I have the audio of President Obama at Todays signing of The Suicide Prevention Bill 19 minutes. My question I am 45 years of age I have had PTSD since January 1990 and no one has never ask me to speak minus the small Talk Radio Shows I get on as a caller but FOX, CNN, CBS, NBC , ABC nobody is calling. My current Veterans Administration Psychatrist states I should have been diganosised with PTSD on the date of discharge but she is afraid to come out and make this statement because she will be fired honest to GOD ! But is any Senator or Congress Person or even The President listening to my side of the story pertaining to PTSD or are they calling my current VA Psychatrist to a Congressional Hearings to testify. How she is trying to help the disabled veteran and if she says something that needs to be corrected like in my case The wrong misdiganosis of personality disorder that I was labeled with so that me and Thousands of other Disabled veterans would miss out on VA BEnefits for years. This is the same Dam thing they did to Veterans, when our own Governemnt gave them Agent Orange. The bureaucracy yes does defintley stinks. But I will try Former Govenor Charlie Crist in this broadcast. I will reach out to Chuck Harder and I invite your calls.

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Hashtags are made, inspiring pictures are shared, and hope is strong. On this day, we come together as a society and recognize that suicide is a serious issue.
On a day that my efforts are especially recognized, I still know the suicide I’m trying hardest to prevent is my own.
Much like an alcoholic, I still identify myself as someone with a problem. I still admit I’m at risk for suicidal behavior. I haven’t attempted suicide in nearly a decade. I haven’t felt the urge to end my life in a few years. I’ve quickly addressed and pushed through my spurts of depression. Yet, I recognize that deep in my psyche, there’s a risk.
I’ve recently become anxious about this risk as I look towards the future. I hope to graduate from American University in May. People ask me, “What will you do when you graduate” or “do you have a job lined up?” Even worse, they tell me, “I know you’ll do great things.”
This is tough to hear because it sounds a lot like the commentary I received as I exited the Marine Corps. I felt like I was set up for success. I had money in the bank, I had an impressive resume, and I had an plan of what I wanted to do. Or, so I thought. Like many veterans, I fell flat on my face.
Almost a year after I left the military I had lost my savings, only found jobs I didn’t like, and naturally became depressed. The year following that found me in debt, leaving a mutually disappointing relationship, and practically homeless.
I was in a very dark place...

My name is Timothy Lawson. I'm a student here at American University, a Marine Corps veteran and a survivor of my own suicide attempt.
I first pondered suicide as a teenager. I daydreamed of taking my own life and how the people around me would respond, but I didn't attempt.
Early in my military career I took leave to go back home and visit friends. At the time, I was already struggling with emotional health. One night, while I was home, I was feeling guilt, shame, and lack of hope about several things in my life. I was depressed. I panicked. I went to the medicine cabinet and grabbed the first prescription bottle I could find and chased it with a bottle of beer. I didn't even bother to look at the label. I just downed the pills and went to my room. I laid there on my bed not knowing if I'd wake up. Fortunately, the next morning, I extremely sick. But sick was better than dead, and I knew I how fortunate I was to still have a heart beat...
?This week's episode of 1, 2, Many: Veteran Suicide features a Navy veteran that explains to us what it's like to respond to a suicide crisis. The images he describes are very graphic and his thoughts on being a "burden" may be considered insensitive, but I think his perspective and experience are worth sharing.

The Jams are ready. I may hook my mp3 box and and when I get a request try to upload a song while another song is playing.
I do not know if I can do that but I have programmed some cool Jams and I won't be like Scott Shannon and tell you
what songs did not make the count down and only play like 15 seconds of the song. That's why I like playing pretty much the Radio Hit
version and play the whole thing. Also if you have a Disabled Veteran issue to air join the conversation. Thanks
I have included pictures of items for sale. I have 11 cabbage patch porcelain 1984 figurines along with Whose Your Mommy Comical T Shirts.

I think its time for me to be brutally honest with myself and my followers.
