    ...

    I am writing this from the lounge at the SEPS Division building... I am being sent home because I had a Life Threatening Reaction to a vaccene, and there may be kidney damage. Will know more when I get home later this week/maybe next week.

    Not the outcome I expected, but hey... at least I tried. I'll let you all know when I get back and start machining again.

      Bah. I'll be fine. I understand it's dead nuts simple to build a blood filter I saw 'em do it on MASH using spare parts....

      I "appear" to be fine at the moment but I need further testing, heck I haven't been out of the hospital very long... about two hours or so.

      Of all the possible outcomes this is not the one I expected.

          LZ,

          You should write a book of all your "adventures".

          Here's hoping you have a speedy, and full, recovery.

                We were just discussing this on the plane-ride home. Even got a title picked out: "Be Glad You Ain't Me."

                Seriously, ya'll only hear about the bad stuff. Life is pretty good between meltdowns.

                This is just the latest "setback" I'll be back up to speed in no time.

                Turns out the vaccine is cultured in shellfish and being that I am allergic to shellfish... yeah. SOMEONE should have caught this during the MEPS screening process. This is the story I'm being given and they are sticking to it.

                Whatever. At least I tried.

                  It is most likely a reaction to an adjuvant used in many vaccines by the military. Micro powdered Chitosan is being used as an adjuvant in a number of vaccines now. It is derived from shrimp shells. You won't likely run into it in civilian vaccines but the military is exempted from many FDA regulations.

                    Shrimp... yeah that'll do it. I am HIGHLY allergic to shrimp. I made note of this on my recruit paperwork you THINK someone would have put up a red flag.

                      They should not have enlisted you at all. Do you get any sort of compensation?

                        This is what the doctor at the hospital said too. This should have been a red-flag in the system.

                        I get paid, I have some paperwork that entitles me to "further care" at a specialist, and I got to bring home a sweet sweet pair of custom running shoes, a $150 raincoat and several other uniform items.

                        So long as there is no "permanent" damage I don't care beyond that. If there is I understand there is a process to follow.

                        Remember I volunteered for this and all the associated risks that went with it.

                        Even sitting there in the hospital I had a wonderful experience... I got to study for my rating, even though it was apparent I wasn't going to proceed, I got to march in formation several times, and I witnessed the commissioning of my unit (Div 227, Ship 9, USS John F Kennedy). I also got screamed at by a Chief for not lacing my boots right, and was issued 50 "Eight Count" exercises to "remind me" not to do it wrong again.

                        Also, made a few friends.


                        Not going to turn this into a "blarg" thread, and I expect others not to "blarg" about please.

                          You did try, and it does count.

                            Just make sure that they give you a piece of paper that covers all expenses for medical care relating to this injury for life.

                              Does it strike anybody else as ridiculously ironic that the NAVY didn't notice he has a deadly SEAFOOD allergy?
