Gastone,(French?)I started getting "corrected/re-educated" by my 2nd year in. At that point I was already breathing generous amounts of KC-130 exhaust and fuel fumes, on top of the daily stress of being a young Marine. I wasn't into gaming or partying, so staying up too late wasn't common for me. But none-the-less, my short term memory was starting to play tricks on me. I can't count how many times I was verbally "counseled" for forgetting something, and never having any excuse(like going out drinking or skirt chasing). Worse yet was having no alibi either, since my first several roommates had friends that didn't include me. So they were usually not there to corroborate my story of just hanging out in my room at the barracks.
And it slowly got worse from there. I was tested by the neuro-psychological department at my VAMC, at the behest of my VA MH therapist, and was found to have significant short term memory loss. On one of the tests I scored a 4%. And when I had told the one dr that I had O2 levels in the mid 70s during an overnight sleep study, the expression on her face was pure shock/amazement.
I just love being me. AFU and little hope of getting that reduced to partially FU!
