As a disabled combat soldier it’s hard to find any enjoyable activities.  For the most part, my PTSD and TBI have made life a real struggle.  Most of my thoughts have been intrusive and quite disturbing.  While at the Aspire Center, I have had the opportunity to get into the Dive program with Kym Larsen.  This is a very new and rewarding experience.  I had to learn to overcome some of my anxieties and work as a team, trusting other people.  While under water I began to feel comfortable, relaxed and in control of my thoughts.  It was a very inspirational experience that I find therapeutic.  In many ways I would consider diving the most therapeutic experience that I have ever gone through.  I plan to make it a major area of my future recovery and life.
