Thursday April 10, 2008  Windy and rainy when I set out for the ACA[1] meeting.  And the bus system wasn’t doing well.  I had thoughts of turning around and going home; but I did get there only about fifteen minutes later than I would have in better weather.

The meeting was smaller than usual; but it went well.  And I realized something about myself which I can now work on changing.

After the meeting:  snow taking a few steps toward the gender-change into rain — coming sideways.  Luckily, I got a ride.

***The City Pages [2] had a letter from someone explaining there is no such thing as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; and there’s no reason why having been in a combat area should disturb a soldier’s or ex-soldier’s mind.
