[Adam Anicich] Hey guys, it's Adam, and I'm here to talk to you today about something that's really difficult,
and that's taking the first step.
Everybody out there knows in drill and ceremony when you're calling cadence,
every movement starts with the first step.
So today we're going to talk about the first step in your recovery.
A lot of people say they're feeling different.
Maybe they've suffered a traumatic brain injury, maybe they've been dealing with symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
Whatever it may be, they may feel different, they may feel not themselves.
There's a couple things you can do to start working on that road to recovery and taking the first step.
You can go online and research on the VA website or other websites dedicated to traumatic brain injury,
post-traumatic stress disorder, a full range of things.
You can also call the 1-800 number for VA and talk to somebody—
a trained professional who is able to really identify what it is that's going on
and really talk with you to try and get you over that initial hump.
The other thing you can do is you can schedule an appointment at a VA medical center
to go see somebody, talk to somebody about this.
Maybe if you're so inclined you just walk into a VA facility.
Whatever it is, I'd encourage you to take the first step in your own personal road to recovery.
That's the best thing you can do, and you've got to do it today.
