[Adam Anicich] Hey guys, it's Adam, and I want to talk to you today about 3 principles that have really helped me in my own recovery as well as a lot of my battle buddies and other active duty guardsmen, reservists, and veterans out there. Basically, nobody is going to take control of your life and your health like you. Nobody is going to take care of your recovery. You've heard it in the military, say, "Hey, nobody is going to take control of your career like you." Nobody is going to take care of your health like you. So I'd encourage you to take an active role, ask the questions that need to be asked, and be proactive about it. The other thing is do your research. Get knowledgeable, get smart on the items real quick. If you've been diagnosed with TBI, PTSD, get smart on those items. Learn everything you can about them so you can ask those important questions so that when you do have the opportunity to talk to your provider, talk to a friend, family member, a peer, that you're knowledgeable, you're well versed on it, and you can ask the intelligent questions. Finally, don't wait. Now is the time to get help. Don't dilly-dally. Don't wait around for next week. Do it now. Get help. Get to the right people, whether it's a clinician, whether it's engaging the community, whether it's just having a realistic look at yourself. Do that today. Thanks.
