"Ten years ago today, on the campus of Bridgewater State College, (now Bridgewater State University) in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, I fell victim to a hoax created by the bold-faced lies of an unethical, unprincipled and dishonest doctor.
The incident all but ruined my chances to graduate from college. The Social Security Administration says It was also the day I became a disabled person. Since that time, I've been on the lookout for the hypocrites of modern medicine."
