Wow, was I glad to see your post, Ilovehistory!! We've missed you, and you've gotta' know there were lots of worried friends here, wondering what was happening. I'm soooo sorry for what you've gone through, but soooo glad that someone is finally paying attention. Your Mom must've been absolutely furious at your doctors. I hope everything works out now - the diagnosis leads to the right treatment, medication... It would be great to see you able to do some normal activities without all of the pain and discomfort you've had for so long. Keep us posted - we're all glad to have you back.
