I read your post here and I feel sad big time. I understand how you feel big time. I have had this rotten illness nearly all of my life and there have been many many times that I just wanted to throw in the towel, but you see when you have children you just can't do that. Think about how they would feel if you were gone. Please reconsider what you are planning to do and find a different doctor ok. Don't let this rotten disease win. I know that that is a lot easier said then done, but please do reconsider. I will have you in my prayers.
