  1. Like many other I have moved out of the are. Sadly I developed a breathing issue about a month after the fire that has still not cleared up. We went through the fire escorted by a sheriff’s vehicle from the Rite Aid in Magalia to the lower part of the fire on Clark Road and were told to follos the road to safety.
    As I said I developed problem breathing about a month after thd fire which continued to get worse.
    In April I found myself at Urgent Care near where we live in Hollister trying to figure out why I was having such a hard time beathing. At that time they told me there was a spot on my lungs and gave me antibiotics. They told me if it didn’t clear up I needed to see a Pulmonary Specialist. This was right after we moved so I looked for a doctor close to our new home.
    I ended up at the Clinic a couple weeks later again with trouble breathing. They referred me to a Pulmonary Specialist and I ended up going to thd Emergency Room as I could hardly breath. At the Emergency Room the gave me a couple different antibiotics, something to break up any congestion and an inhaler. That was near the end of April. Now it is the beginning of June and I am not much better. My body still feels really bad.
    Although I can breath most nights, I am finding myself waking up with panic attacks and believe I have PTSD as someof those nights I wake up in a panicked state. My fear of tight spaces has gotten worse as has my fear of being trapped somewhere I could be burned. I have a referral in for Behavioral Health and have not heard back from them as of this date, 6/1/2019.
    Currently we have left Magalia and are living in Hollister. I am finding life is very stressful and having trouble dealing with situations without losing my temper, which is not something I had a problem with before the fire. My body aches all over, I never seem to feel well and am constantly sick. Not sure of this is from the fire, trauma or what, but it seems to be with me all the time. While I lost quite a few things, nothing can replace my peace of mind.
    Do I qualify for help from you or PG&E?
