Hi Erin; Welcome to our WHL family. As you can see, this place is filled with the kindest, most informative, and most understanding people on the web. As several have said, your story is so familiar to many of us. So you are amongst people who will always believe you, always support you and always understand you. Believe me, we know exactly what it means to be happy to have an answer, even if it is a chronic disease, because we then know that we are not losing our minds and that there is a name for what has been happening to us! It is a catch 22 in some ways...
I know you will find friends here and please know that there will always be someone here when you are in need!
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
