I can answer the children question. When I came back from Saudi my daughter was 4. By the time she was 5 or 6 she started showing signs of the GWS. It is very disheartening to me because I would never wish what I have on anyone, especially a child. She has major depression, ADD, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, severe allergies and many more small things that keep popping up. She is a wonderful child and I hope that she can live a long enriched life. I'll tell you right now that it is hard for a partner to stand by and watch someone deteriorate and eventually die but I can tell you from experience that that small amount of love given in whatever time there is means a whole lot. I just got married and my husband has had to deal with all my sickness but the love keeps me going. It keeps my daughter going too. It is horrible to suffer alone, just horrible.
: : I HAVE 2 QUESTIONS ONE WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THING THAT YOUR CHILDREN HAVE COME DOWN WITH OR BEEN BORN WITH? AND I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH A GULF WAR VET BUT HE BECAME VERY ILL SOON AFTER WE MET IS IT EASYIER TO HAVE SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT WITH YOU EVEN THOUGH IN MY BOYFRIENDS CASE IT IS JUST A MATTER OF DETIRORATION BEFORE HE DIES AND I WILL BE WATCHING HIM THE ENTIRE TIME OR SOULD I JUST STAY BACK AND WATCH FROM A DISTANCE?
