Guys i'm glad i found this forum. I did some major research on the GG (gammagoblin) shot. Here in the US the shot is used on cancer patients after they have undergone chemotherapy. It is used to build the immune system to prevent sickness. I had mine in 1993 and to this day I have never even had a sniffle. The other side is everytime they do a blood test the Dr. ask me if i have been ill or have a fever because my white blood cell count is way too high......go figure! I feel this to be some of the problem i'm having to not getting use out of some of the medications they give me. Anyone else do the research?

I have not done any research other than looking in to the PB pills. I'm like you. I haven't been sick since storm until this year. I blame the VA pills for this year. All the meds they got me on slow me way down (drugged). I'm wondering if you are aware that a lot of the psych meds take like a month to start working. And, then they may have to up your dosage after that to get effect. Zoloft, Buproprion, Buspar, Depakote, etc.. are all like that. Plus it takes a while to find the right med cocktail for you. I've been on a bunch and that seems to be the norm. It would be hard for me to do any great amount of research because I have no idea what all they gave us. I know all of us were sick for a week after the shots.
