Dear Cheryl, a very brave woman you are and a fighter in spite of your poor health! It seems the medical profession are always the last to acknowledge a disease. They don`t listen to their patients! To have judgement passed on you and to not be acknowledged is unacceptable!
My heart goes out to you.

I hate to be the bearer of stupid news but they are currently rewriting their bible (Diagnostic Statistical Manual)
and it is said that everything will be a psychiatric disorder, nothing will be left untainted. So, if you eat, drink, have marital sex, have children, brush your teeth, watch movies be forwarned............... forget about so called medical problems they are re writing the AMA. Any wonder why it was predicted to take 10yrs to write.
Cheryl, sending now hun!
