I was deployed once.. Now im on the shots.. Did a little work, but nothing like you would do there.. basically if you are as bad of condition as im at, you will not want to deploy.. It's 2am here and i had my mtx shot today, and 2 oxycodone half hr ago. Its going to rain tomorrow i bet just because i cannot control the pain.. I'm tempted to go for a muscle relaxer and sleeping pill just to goto sleep right now..
Just saying, on your worst pain day, think to yourself "could you do it without the comforts of home" to me that helps most of the pain. to be frank, id shoot myself if my hottub breaks down.. then to see a military doc that usually has no sympathy for your problems.. I'm just glad my symptoms didnt hit until after i got out..
btw, did you work around any chemicals.. Like trich??
