I’m a combat veteran and I have PTSD. I destroyed my marriage because I failed to get help for my issues. My ex wife served me divorce papers three years ago because of the abuse, and I finally got the message and got help but it was too late. I’ve been in and out of the VA system since but I’ve struggled with anger, resentment, and jealousy since. She had every right to divorce me to protect herself and our kids. However, I’ve caused a lot of issues because of my feelings of resentment and jealousy since then, especially when I know she’s dating someone new. Most recently, I assaulted her and went to jail for it. I was angry at her criticism and how she berated me, cussing at me in front of my kids and lost my temper. That was the wrong thing to do, and I think that going to jail was a wake up call for me. I never grew up around domestic violence and was never violent before my military service. I’ve never been abusive towards any other woman except my ex wife. I need prayer that God will change my life and help me to be the man/father he’s called me to be. Thank you.
