I would spend my drive to work crying

A few years ago my husband was diagnosed with PTSD – which stems from his service in the Marine Corps. It took 20 years after he got out of the Marines before the symptoms really started to appear. All of a sudden, our worlds were rocked. Watching him struggle with the trauma he witnessed so many years ago has been gut wrenching. I’ve had to stay strong for him and our children.

There were days I didn’t know if he would be alive when I would get home from work – I could see how taking the easy way out was very tempting to him. After all, his pain has been unbearable. I would spend my drive to work crying because I didn’t know what to do.

Listening to WAY-FM helped bring me peace and confidence that Jesus was with me with His arms wrapped tightly around me. Listening to the inspiring music reminded me to give it all to God and just let Him help. He has been my powerful therapist and healer. Those days driving to work and listening to WAY- FM have been my daily dose of therapy, spiritual guidance, and the chance to heal. My husband is doing better but will always struggle with the memories and trauma, but he has also come to rely on WAY-FM for inspiration. Thank you for what you do.
