Vehicle stolen and note was paid by insurance was a major setback in goals I have set to put my life in order as it should be. parachute malfunction that changed who I was from the core inside out. Many surgeries, extensive recovery times, and physical therapy. Fighting denial after denial of veterans claims to live on what started as 350.00 a month, became homeless in St. cloud salvation army to proud to tell anyone what's going on. Addiction to pain killers given to me by VA medical, med chats not being checked and multiple Dr's writing prescriptions finding one-day pre-op appointment a nurse said been overprescribed by large amount has caused a lot of liver damage. depression since. Accident and what transpired after and how I came back, and I was so different, the guy who once had so many close friends couldn't connect any longer. Blamed everyone or everything under the sun but the fact was it was me. So, went through the divorce, surgeries, addiction, homeless, falling out with family no income, constantly being operated on to point that nerves dying in lower extremities enduring me that one day I will lose my lower extremities (neuropathy) suicide attempts feeling sorry for myself and the well, it took its toll on my I wanted to quit. I'm glad I'm here and since self-admitting to PTSD treatment of 9 and another 7 months. I've fought back, rekindled family relations started a major overhaul on myself and life. Takes a while to do this it takes finding belief in oneself again. A short time ago my truck was stolen, found 29 days later by local police insurance had towed to repair shop where the adjuster called it a total loss. Finally, after months of trying to get the note holder to release the title for insurance to pay on claim finally, they did. That leaves me where I am at today. No down payment / no cash for a decent vehicle. The years from 2008 to 2016 /17 surgeries and recoveries, no income fighting VA. Divorce, multiple surgeries and near 10-year long fight with the VA had wrecked credit and built enormous debt that I've brought down under 10,000 but could have done it wiser buy helping credit issues but had no clue. Trying to get enough to put down on a vehicle. Long story short and this is very difficult to do and such a letdown in my eyes. I am on the cusp of achieving success in regaining my life back with a smile and confidence. It gets overwhelming dealing with the amputee status that’s been given me, damage to my liver, embarrassment of how things have unfolded, dealing with TBI/ PTSD where its to point I can notice the changes in memory, speech patterns and getting g out what’s on my mind to say and have it come out right is very troubling. The chronic constant pain and extreme 24/ tinnitus screaming in my head, over coming the opiate addiction, battling major depression and anxiety issues w/ major sleep issue. So much more going on to have someone take my vehicle wreck it and now be in position I’m in Is causing extreme triggers in thought and depression and each day its like closer and closer to why bother! I know now why, and the total of 22 months in patient therapy and in patient treatment has paid off along with great support from many!
Sincerely, Robert Olson
