"You'd better keep this a secret, or else!"

Sound familiar, anyone?

Thanks for posting this article, FT. No more secrets.

I echo Lee's words. It was always to be our secret. If you tell you will be taken away and your parents will believe you are an ungrateful son. Sad how misuse of authority can destroy lives. The words are all too familiar.

Michael,

I was lucky. My Major sent me off-base for help. The military mental health facilities take a Mcdonald's approach, If you cannot be "cured" in THEIR timeline (or not on THEIR menu) you get "reassessed." It sucks!

I am sorry my brother.
