HELP GULF WAR VETERAN

 Dave is a Gulf War veteran with illnesses related to the war including spine issues and neuropathy and fibromylagia to name a few. He doesnt get a lot of sleep...
We are asking for your help trying to get an adjustable bed for him. The VA bed that he was given was not big enough. He is 6'2" and 300 and he has several issues cauaing chronic wideapread pain a d breathing iaaues. 

His  days are disrupted by chronic fatigue and pain. His blood pressures have been way higher than normal and he just don't have much energy. This bed is just essential to his recovery from surgeries and just essential for him to live a better life.

The bed would also help because of COPD. When you have reapiratory issues it helps to sleep with your head elevated and he also has sleep apnea so it would also help with that. He has a caregiver right now but his biggest fesr is that he will wind up back in a nursing home and stuck there. 

If your unfamiliar with gulf war illness basically he is aging quickly and has a cluster of symptoms. It includes respiratory issues, sleep disorders,  mental issues, and fibromyalgia along with osteoarthritis. The spine disorders are hardest with 3 plates in his neck and degenerative disk disorders. This causes neuropathy which makes both my legs and feet ache. I also have diabetes. 

If you want to know more about gulf war syndrome I have s blog. I would realky like you to click on the link and just read a bit about it. I am not alone. There are thousands of us and we have often been cast aside much the same as vietnam veterans where wjth agent orange and still are iften times.
