Hello Squeaky:
Welcome to our family. I am glad that you finally have a great medical team and that they are working to treat your symptoms. I am sorry to hear that your previous team did not care much about your symptoms. But, hopefully those days are all behind you.

We are especially here to allow you to vent, as much as you want, about your illness and how it affects you. We have really big shoulders, understanding hearts and lots of warm hugs.
