In garage and in house

I have been struck three times. The first time was in Barkhamsted, Connecticut, in July 2007. I was in my garage in front of an open door getting a drink out of a fridge. The second time was June of 2008 in Barkhamsted, Connecticut, I was in bed in front of an open window and woke up just before I was struck. The third time was in August of 2016 in Leicester North. I was in the middle of my kitchen when the lightning came up threw the tile floor.

I have ringing in my ears, joint and muscle pain, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, anger issues, memory loss, concentration problems, PTSD, etc.
