Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Spaw's post is inspiring point blank. And, something stood out for me... "There have been so many studies done and knowledge accumulated over the years that they now are able to see and tell us how interactions of conditions often fit together and how things that used to be unnoticed are now linked. Now while that makes it scary when you have these things, it also makes them more readily dealt with by the medicos. And since you know you have them you can also do "right" things to help yourself."

Why? Well, because I have had a bad few months and I saw a doc yesterday ("walk-in-clinic" doc as mine is on holiday) who told me some stuff about my "stuff". A few things she said (English lass as it were) triggered me and I went surfing. Well SOB! I put things together and I am gonna beat on my doc when he gets off holidays! It's bloody obvious that he should have been checking for certain things.

Right... back to reality. I can nudge my doc to consider some things as long as I don't tell him I diagnosed myself based on web surfing. BUT, the web has certainly opened my eyes. It is a great source of info and I suggest to any and all that they consult the internut. Of course, ya gotta take it all with a grain of sea salt... >;-)
