I have recently brought up some unpleasantness (understatement) of my time in Saudi with my therapist in session. I wont go into detail, you know the deal. I now see that part of my trauma is from this experience and part of my hallucinations revolve around this experience. Although I would still say that the vast majority of my issues are from the CSA. I have sought out other forums or even chats about this and have found very few, if any real communities like MS, about military trauma. I wanted to ask if anyone here has any suggestions.

Bringing up that topic here feels awkward and inappropriate.
Life is pain, marked only at intervals in which the pain is less severe!

I am sorry iaccus , you having been thru a lot.
I googled - I wasn't sure what you found thru the internet.
I don't want to be negative .
This is what I found.
I hope it isn't triggering.
God Bless you!
Enduring abuse from different eras and places ; I could only
imagine be very traumatic .
Anyway, I hope you treat yourself with much compassion.
I hope this isn't overwhelming.
