So many people suffer unnecessarily. I had lunch with an old friend last Saturday. He was one of the best athletes I knew, but now is poisoned from chemo for leukemia. He has only months to live, if his doctors are correct. He had miso soup and excused himself to vomit. He seemed so interested in my recovery. It has been more than six years since I refused radiation therapy and used IV "C", "C-mo therapy" instead. Six plus years without pain and suffering. Outdoor tennis starts tomorrow!
Kerri Affronti: Mara Landis,
Mara, thank you! I sincerely appreciate your encouraging me to share my story and be a resource for anyone struggling or in pain about Inflammatory Bowel Diseases or struggling with Weight Loss. It is absolutely the reason I think that I was 'saved' and made it through my near-death experiences is to assist people who are not finding their way or the right information. I am so happy when people move from pain to pleasure! Send em my way!
Thank you for your bravery and generosity in sharing your experience. It can be very isolating to suffer from the challenges you faced. Hearing your story lets us know we are not alone in our suffering. Knowing that can make all the difference. I'm so happy you were able find a pathway to health and well-being.
Eric Kussin: Robin Katz,
Absolutely not alone, Robyn. So many in this together. In fact I think every is affected to some degree. It’s just so few talk about it bc of the preconceived notions, that it makes sense you'd feel alone. Also the symptoms cause you to see the world so strangely and different than you had before - that you can’t imagine anyone else could possibly be seeing the world as strangely. It’s certainly a mind game but supporting one another does make it easier!
Thank you for sharing your story. I am sorry about your suffering, but am so impressed by your perseverance and willingness to try new options. Your story is inspiring, and your honesty so powerful. I wish you all of the very best and will definitely look up your organization.
Eric Kussin: Alison Baker,
Thanks so much for the kind note and for taking the time to read. Yeah at this point I just put it out there if it’s gonna help others. I look at it this way- there’s nothing to be ashamed of...we didn’t choose for life to affect us this way....and compared to fighting those miserable symptoms for years, sharing openly is a piece of cake ;).
