You, This Is Me...OVER?!: YTIMO Combating Veterans Suicide (Paperback)
You, This Is Me. Over. charts former Green Beret, Clinton Beaudel Dooley's journey from elite soldier and seasoned veteran of both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, to his struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder after several tours of duty, a near fatal breakdown, and through his recovery. Clint's works show a fractured person who is brought back together by the love of his exceptionally strong wife, fellow brothers in arms, forgiving family, fur-babies, and rediscovered connection to the world outside himself. After years of cycling in and out of war zones, of trying to switch back and forth between being a soldier in the thick of war and being a loving husband and everyday person at home, he understands why veterans sometimes get stuck in between the competing inner/outer worlds of God, Family, and Country which hinder many war veterans from fully fitting back into a society they have all fought to protect. You, This Is Me. Over, offers veterans, their loved ones, and health care professionals an insight into what is going on inside veterans' hearts and heads with the hope of increasing understanding, and opening up conversations that will save lives. Together all the works present the many facets of a person's experience with PSTD. If you read one, or all of them, and it speaks to you or allows you to show a love done what you are experiencing, then YOU, THIS IS ME. OVER. has been worth writing.
