      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

I've been on about 10 different types of meds. They've tried therapy with groups and 1 on 1. I came to the conclusion I'll have it the rest of my life and just to learn to live with it.

Hey man stay strong, every one has issues and if you need someone to lay it on the line with I am here. I like to think of VG as my other family and could talk to anyone of the member if I had some sort of issues.

Mental health is one of the hardest things to work on, meds dont always work a I myself suffer from schizophrenia, ur not alone in ur problems. the hard thing is to say what you know is wrong and saying. for me it helped saying it alone and then worked my way up to sharing with others, I see someone once a week for my issues, things can happen to use that are really deep and messed up, talking to someone who just listens can have a huge impact

Something that I would recommend as a mental health therapist is look for support groups in your area.  It took a long time for people to recognize PTSD as something that does impact people on a daily bases and some people can MANAGE their symptoms and some people still need help no matter what they have for resources.  I would reccomend https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/ as another resource that can hook you up with someone to talk to if you want that is specilized in what you are looking for and insurance coverage if that is an issue.  Vets have Veteran Center and some links that are not known, http://www.va.gov/,  or look for some mental health centers around you as well http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/finding-therapy.  Groups are another option that you can utilize, some people like them because you do not have to do 1 on 1 and like you said you want to know how many other people are impacted by it.  Peer support groups are also beneficial I have found from former clients. 

If you are looking for more information about the technical aspect of PTSD pick up a DSM-5, this is what clinicians use to diagnose and help treat symptoms.  

You are not alone when it comes to having PTSD or some form of trauma related injury; either mentally or physically.  

Hope some of these resources help,

cheers-m8
