Being a Veteran is an honor, but can come with some challenges in readjusting to the civilian sector. Veterans have culture of their own and need specialized attention to overcome specific adjustment issues. There is no time limit assigned for readjustment, only symptoms help is needed.
Some signs Veterans needs help are problems sleeping, eating, or angry outburst. Sleep hygiene is key part in living a well-balanced life. Diet helps provide energy to sustain the transition in the civilian sector and angry is the sign emotions and feelings are unresolved. We also tend to see symptoms such as:
- Anxiety and nervousness.
- Trouble sleeping.
- Having a hard time concentrating.
- Reckless behavior.
- Withdrawal or isolation from people and social activities.
- Feeling trapped and/or without hope that your situation will improve.
Some Veterans and their families need help and we are here for them and the entire family. Contact us at Above It All Counseling Group for support and guidance.
