I'm an injured vet and the only good feeling shot I ever got was morophine. They give you a lot of crazy things in the military to keep you going for
that next few days. I am awaiting the results of a liver biopsy because 1000mg of tylenol, 100 mg of tramadol, and a slew of other meds every 4-6
hours has screwed my liver up to the point it's almost life threatening.
I will say that the VA does have a habit if letting vets die before compensation / treament, and certainly will look the other way if you don't get
treatment. They also do very little to inform the veterans of services, most of the time leaving them to discover things along a ridiculously long
I've never seen a shot that kept you up for 7 days, and like the other guy, shots were definatly a hobby in the military. I also don't see the
validity or need for a shot keeping you up that long, because no matter how crappy the living conditions are, you will get a few winks here and there.
I've been on 24/7 QRF for days on end, running missions of 16+ hrs in length back to back, and not once did some doc come up to me with some funny
juice in a needle. I would probably refuse on the grounds of it being unsanitary to give to me in the field.
Anyway, this guy does sound bogus on account of that small and confusing detail.
I guess it's also good to note I was an infantryman, so I've seen pretty much everything this guy could have seen and more. When I was over there in
'07 it was pretty intense. At least where we were at.
