I first began to notice health problems in November of 2008, I was permitted to go on light duty in December of 2008, by January of 2009 there were often times I was not even able to perform a light duty job either physically or mentally. After leaving work some of the symptoms have become better but if I do anything physical I become quickly worn out and then become ill which may last for days. If I do something that requires much thought I become very confused and my mind shuts down. I have symptoms simlar to ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease), MS, Parkinsons Disease, Epilepsy, COPD, memory loss etc.
I worked as a welder for years at a private industry that was located on a former munitions plant and current Superfund Site. We were continually told that the hazards did not affect our business.
