Why the hell would I lie, embellish or even push towards something like that? That's what my family was told. That's why he received the assistance that he did, on the gov't dime.
I wouldn't even begin to try and BS about something like that, that would be despicable.
The VA is expecting much, much more of this similar case to come their way. In fact, there is an entire room full of brand new respirators that are just waiting for the next batch to come through. It's sad man, literally the most real and most sad thing that I've ever witnessed in my life.
I've done my research, I could care less if I'm called crazy. I saw someone I loved dearly go down fighting the entire time and I've never felt so ****ing helpless to help someone in my life. Even typing this brings me to tears, it's something that is very painful...still. I don't think it will ever not be.
I volunteer to help the other MLS patients and it's sometimes unbearable and I should put in more time then I do....but man, words can't really describe it. I feel for the vets and I feel for their families. It's nothing that I wish upon my worst enemy, it's got to be up there in the worst ways to go out.
Sorry if I offended anyone in here, it wasnt my intent at the time, I really just got emo about it.
I'm starting to become a bit less skeptical about certain shots and I agree, they are needed. I just wish more funding and research was done and I wish that it wasn't such a money game.
