I start to second guess my self and think well MAYBE with the right panel we won't get screwed over. But one thing keeps bring me back to reality and that's my woman's intuition. Your statement below is something that has been on my mind for awhile now and keeps me from believing that they wont screw us over again. Why would the IOM come up with a criteria that our specialist, doctors and advocates/patients agree with, when it will just shoot them in the foot regarding their definition for the Gulf War Veterans. This would mean that if they created a criteria bettter than the CCC or ICCC-ME, it would in affect overturn their Gulf War Veterans ruling from GWI to CMI.
