I wish I could find a doctor that understands exactly that. I got discharged by my dr because they can't help me anymore. I have lost my whole life from a car accident last year.

WOW! Exactly what I’ve been dealing with for 38 months now. My self ...I am unrecognizable to me and my family. I have not been able to put it into words, but thank you thank you thank you!

Sometimes it's the other person's energy that seems to suck it out of me.
