I Was one of the first soldiers to get sick, from the so called GWS, I was in a transportation Unit SFC, I was medivaced to Frankfurt Hospital In Germany in April 91, I had cronic Headaches, blisters on hands and feet, memory lost, hairloss, unable to sleep, constantly going to the bathroom to urniate, sometimes as many as 9 times a night, Panic Attacks -which comes and goes somtimes to the extent that it completely feel as tho I cannot get any air, I havebeen on Zoloft , and Kolonipin for 4 Years , and it only cover up the symtoms, I exercise regular, I take Ginsing, 10,000 MG , Vitimin E 1000 MG vitimin C 4000 mG Daily, I can't smoke , drink, or stay in the cold for very long, I was very sick for 5 Months I could barely walk, I lost my Music Business, almost lost my Job, filed Bankruptcy, lost my Wife, But I keep going I suffer a lot but seems like I am getting adjusted to the Pain, I am remarried now and my New Wife supports me and so do my family, as soon as I think i am getting better, Wham"" I am slamed with constant Panic attacks and joint pains, and Headachs and lost of energy ,. I spent 20 Years in the Military, I Believe someone had to pertect our way of life, and we as soldiers took that challange and now we suffer , because of our commitment,. Hopefully our government will see our pain and I feel that every Soldier on the Gulfwar Ilness Registar should recieve a minimum of 100,000 Dollars compensation, across the board and then disability, this would show future soldiers that our Country takes care of its Soldiers.
