So sorry that it is so hard for you at the moment.

If your GP is so unsympathetic can you find a different one. Your family need you don't ever forget that. Gentle hugs


My son in law was discussing this very subject tonight. He said it's what and who you leave behind that's going to be hurt. Please dig deep and find the strength you have to get through this. Once you find a doctor that will listen to you. You will find away to put this behind you. You will come out the other side stronger then you ever thought you were! You are not alone! I speak from experience. I have been at the bottom with what I felt was no hope! Pain has away of making things feel so much harder than it is. You just have to dig deep and find a way to look up! Believe with all your heart that there is a way! One minute at a time! Baby steps that is all it takes! Before you know it this will pass. It has to because you are not alone!!!

I have read your post with so much pain and sorrow for what you are having to endure, and I sincerely hope that you can find the answers that you so desperately desire and deserve. I agree completely with Betty67 and Regnofibro1, as your family need you and I am certain that they would be hurt beyond comprehension if something was to happen to you.
