In Reply to: Does GWS get worse over time? - from anxious wife posted by Bree on April 10, 2000 at 09:25:52:

The answer to your question is absolutely...YES...this is coming from a Gulf War Veteran who is suffering from the "SYNDROME" (I hate that word) I started feeling the symptoms about 6 months after the war and it has gotten progressively worse each year....first it started out with a little fatigue and has grown into a daily chore to even get out of bed.
While on active duty exercise got harder and harder to do...so I got out of active duty...and joined the National Guard (figured I could still be part of the military that way) a couple of years later I was retired (medically) because I was getting to the point where I could no longer perform at military standards (that's a rough blow to man who has 15 years and combat)
Now I try to live day to day on the candy (drugs) the VA has given me and the meager disability I get and try to keep my family together and happy. There are many days I feel it would be easier for me to just die and let my family get the life insurance than to let them watch me just disappear through this illness.
