All of us had to see a psychotherapist for part of the de-mobilization process. I wasn’t diagnosed with anything other than a self-diagnosis of homecomingitis. Homecomingitis has several signs and symptoms. A perpetual smile, a feeling of elation and joy, and utter contentment, for instance. Thankfully, this pseudo-disease will likely last for several months.

One of the other symptoms occurs when I observe or associate with the several hundred soldiers here; I’m going to miss seeing many of them. My reserve unit is different from theirs. I was pulled from my unit to go to Iraq with them, so I will likely never see any of them ever again. It’s too bad. I’ve met some really good people.
