Forty years ago my boyfriend, a Vietnam vet, killed himself a couple of days after I broke up with him. We loved each other deeply but there was no help back then for vets with PTSD and I got overwhelmed. I was so young and alone when I lost him, I felt my feelings were a landmine that could kill me if I went too close. One night in January 2013 my feelings started rising inside me like he'd just killed himself and alone in the Rockies far from any big city, I googled "my boyfriend killed himself after I broke up with him" and it brought me right to the Alliance of Hope where someone else had uttered those words. In the three weeks since I joined the Alliance of Hope, I have been able to find and express my feelings among people who understand, who listen and respond, who are patient, encouraging, caring and share my experience. Alliance of Hope is a miracle in the wilderness where I carried my burden of guilt and grief.
