    I was burned by Agent Orange. I have something really going on with me, I don't know if I did it myself, or if it is Agent Orange, but my arms hurt seriously really bad. Serious pain 24/7, sometimes it truly don't stop. It causes all kinds of degenerations to occur within the human body. I feel for plants & other animals. I have tried, & tried to hold down certain jobs, & I just can't do it. I really don't know which way I will go out, but I won't be prolonging it for to long, without some serious pain killers. I will go to my home State & euthinize the situation. We'll see by the time I am 40, & I am 35 now….
    p.s. how am I supposed to fix my misspelled words if the editor won't allow. I am a child of a guy whom was in agent orange pretty bad, & that is another part of my problem. So please forgive my ignorent spellin.
    Thanks a lot
