First, I hope you are having a nice day. If not, I hope it gets better soon! Next, I have two BS degrees: Chemical Engineering and Biological Sciences, and I am medically retired. I have 1991 Gulf War Illnesses, and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder part of 1991 Gulf War Illnesses precipitated to schizoaffective Disorder (bipolar type). Why? I reported illegal activity as a chemical engineer at a pharmaceutical corporation, and I experienced retaliation and black balling. The stress from the latter precipitated schizoaffective disorder (bipolar type).
