I’ve said it before and I will continue to complain. Maybe someday someone will fix the VA but right now it is a mess. I wrote about my horrible experience on my Facebook on what happened on Wednesday – I called the suicide hotline because I just didn’t want to go on. I am so sad all the time then when I put in the effort to get help and the VA makes it so hard – it just feels like no one cares. They forget they only have a job because of me and other veterans who served. I know why people just give up and stop trying to be seen by anyone.
Today I got a phone call back from social services they call you if you want when you have called the suicide helpline. The two things I asked for in the 10 pages and two-hour intake was a person who had the ability to due video appointments and the other the person is a Christian. I have found in the past I am defensive about my faith.
The lady on the phone wanted to know my suicide prevention plan and I was not in the mood to explain – again. The social worker was so focused on that she was missing what was throwing me over the edge and uncaring VA.
