I started this petition to do my part in changing an unchangable system. I have been sick since November 2011. My doctors are convinced that my health is failing because of my anxiety, and because of this they have failed to send me to the specialists needed for proper diagnosis. Yes, since I have been back from Afghanistan I do have increased anxiety.

I honestly believe the system needs to change. Too many soldiers' health is being ignored, dismissed, or just overlooked. We serve our country for the freedoms many take for granted. We should not be neglected.
Is a soldiers life worth the pride of another? I do not believe so. The army especially needs to be supporting and guiding their soldiers and they are not. I have been in almost four years and noone ever guided me on the steps to become a leader. I went to war and am now being treated differently for an injury I have because of that. What is wrong here? I do not know where to start, but I think this is a good place.
I truly believe if I can help at least one other soldier from suffering then my pain will be all worth it!
Again, my family thanks you for your support.
Our soldiers need more support from their leadership, and less hardship. Our soldiers need better health care providers...not ones that do not want to sit and listen...not ones that are afraid to get a second opinion....not ones who think what they say is always correct...
Soldiers are getting wronged by their units and their military healthcare providers.
