never give up. Keep your vision. Dont listen to your thoughts, what other people say and follow your heart and the intent of your decission. You must know you are not allone. I am living in Sweden. I heard the exact words! Really it could be a tape from a meeting I had with my MD. He wanted to give me drugs from my mind and I said thank you. The mind is the only think keeping me together! It took me 2.5 yearsa of fighting the school medical teaching. But I got all the tests I wanted slowly out of them. I dont care what they say. I only want the tests done. Now finally after 2.5. years I got a paper to the university hospital to do a very good breath test for SIBO. I didnt give up. Its a marathon which you will wine my friend. You only loose the battle when you give up. Be your best friend and if everybody deserts you stay faithfull to yourself and to your health.
