A military veteran family is asking for help to cope with husbands recent diagnosis of PTSD.

My husband was recently discharged from the military. He served in OEF and OIF and suffers from PTSD. He has been going to the veterans hospital for over 2 years now since he was discharged with little luck of receiving any help that is needed to help him cope. Since being let out of the military he has been unable to find a job due to the severity of his PTSD he often has nightmares, flashbacks, emotional episodes, and often completely isolates himself. He is unable to really feel comfortable anywhere we go whether to the hospital, store, park, or even classes due to him not being able to stand in crowds. He is constantly on edge closing all the doors pacing around and usually gets startled very easily and when he does it triggers flash backs. His PTSD affects every aspect of our life because he often gets emotional recalling all the things he did and even threatened suicide a few times. We have now become more separated and distant. We have 1 child and 1 due in december 2012 and 3 by his previous wife. We have recently started reading our scriptures and found relief in the most high Yah and have been trying to cope. We have fallen into debt because he is unable to work and most of my income is unemployment. We are just trying to stay afloat and need help doing so as the gov't has rejected our applications for help for the past 2 years. It gets very difficult at times and with a new life on the way it seems even tougher at times, but with the strength of Yah we have been striving to make it. On top of the PTSD with my husband my mother was diagnosed with type-II diabetes and stage 3 ovarian cancer. I am just looking for a little help to keep my family afloat thank you in advance.
