“Trying to cope and adjust to civilian life was one of the hardest, most difficult things to face. Nothing was the same. I missed the Army and the brotherhood we created, damn near everything about it,” Kris remembers. He started self-medicating and drinking way too much, he wasn’t sleeping, and more and more, Kris shut out the rest of the world.
“No one understood. I was depressed, riddled with anxiety, and felt like I had no purpose to live.”
The universe, on the other hand, felt differently, and after his unsuccessful suicide attempt, Kris knew he needed help.
