Well, Amos, it varied. The PTSD was caused when the US Army made me see and do things that weren't very nice at all and that's why I need the therapy. The need for rotator cuff surgery was caused by a a fall I had in Boise when I lost my balance on the edge of a curb cut made for handicapped folks. The type 2 diabetes is under discussion, but it might very well have been brought on by exposure to dioxin-containing herbicides used along the DMZ in Korea.

Now, there's this scar on the outside of my right leg. THAT was made when a guy cut me with a corn knife (a kind of short, heavy, machete). The scar on my left temple was caused by a fall when ice skating and the temple bar of my glasses was driven into the side of my head. The little scar in my right eyebrow was caused when my mother dropped me on my head.

There. Does that answer your question, at least partially?
