This year has just been... mostly awful. I've been spending a vast majority of my time at the VA, in-and-out of hospitals, or drowning in paperwork to prove that my service-connected disability is "decreasing my quality of life"...
I do have more drawings in-progress, but it's taking more and more time for me to feel rested enough to sit through the pain just long enough to get some more done.
I'm completely and thoroughly exhausted from it all, but it seems a small group of people have shown up in the past couple months who are willing, able, and capable of helping me go through the nightmare that is VA benefits.
MY ADVICE FOR ANYONE CURRENTLY IN OR SOON LEAVING THE U.S. MILITARY:
KEEP ALL OF YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS, in order and have copies!! The VA will screw you over more than you even care to imagine, but as a veteran, you are entitled to their services and/or benefits.
