: : Hi Tammy,
: : Didn't see you e-mail address...so I'll just write back to here. My husband was with the 3rd

Hi, my name is pete tynan i too was in the 1st. and our allarms went off once. we were put into mop gear for 24 to 32 hrs. and then told all clear "false allarm". durring this time we were also instructed to take a "pb" tablet. when i took my mop gear off my chest and other body hair had grown radically. i dont mean darker or thicker, i mean dark and thick in places it hadnt been before. has antone else had a similar experiance?
also do you remember humerless medics not from your unit ariving with a special innoculation (just another "for whatever" shot) only these medics wouldnt tell us what it was, and acted really wierd when joked with about it. i know that somthing was changed in me durring this brief period of a fiew days by the hair growth. i came home from the gulf injured earlier than the rest of my unit and gut leave at home to recouperate. durring this time i showed my family and friends my new full chest of hair
they were all really freaked out, at the time i was just happy to be allive. all of this was observed way before any gws scandals so i know somthing i was given or exposed to durring this allarm period you mentioned probably caused some radical changes. hey mom im an x-files baby! seriously i now have intermittant leg aches, some keep me in bed or a hot tub all day. i am also as of a fiew years ago noticed a change in my abillity to deal with stress, concentrate, or controll impulsive behavior. i was never the most emotionally stable person but as of the last year
ive been unable to keep a job or deal reasonably with situations that cause stress. emotionally i feel like a 14 year old, and i just have a terible
sense of confusion that rarely lifts. it is often bad enough that i try to go with it and not care. oh yeah, my bowels went south shortly after the gulf war. how am i suposed to be able to patently deal with a complex process of dealing with the v.a. and aid apps. i dont even think ill ever be able to keep a real job again. gabba gabba hey.
