“I’ve actually met a lot of veterans and the first thing I tell ’em is, ‘You need to set your pride aside.’ Pride’s the biggest barrier we have. I went through a long time of, ‘I’m okay. I’ve got a job. I’m not homeless. I’m not divorced. I’m not doing drugs. I’m managing.’ But, once you set aside that pride, you can just say, ‘I know I need some help.’ It gets a lot easier.
“I’ve had people who hadn’t seen me in a couple months since I got Bobby say, ‘Hey you look relaxed.’ It’s completely different.
“There are still times where it’s rough but with Bobby and my family I’m able to make it through things. I still have my difficulties but I feel like I can do whatever I need to.”
