Great Service!

I was injured in 1982 (T-12 & L-3, both complete). I have spent time in PDX VA & Seattle VA hospitals. While at the PDX VA, I had local family and friends to visit with. Being away from home in Seattle is a needed, yet lonely experience, There are other patients to talk with, but only on a surface level. Almost always the OPVA has a representative spend some time with patients at the Seattle VA. I may not have exhibited the proper level of appreciation for these visits. Let me now say a big "Thank you" to OPVA and it's Hospital Liaison representative(s). Those 'visits' made a huge difference in my healing process.
When one is laying in bed alone and left to his own devices, one's mind has nothing to do but explore a variety of scenarios some of which are awful, at least that's what mine did. With no family or friends to talk with, very unhealthy, devastating things come to mind as reasonable and very do-able. I'm not a fuzzy, warm kind of guy but having someone to chat with redirected my dark thoughts from those actions to more regular thoughts. And, I'm here to at attest to the value of those conversations. I might not have been here to do so if left to my darker thoughts.
Again, Thank You!
