Continuing efforts with all channels open for two way communications to find those who might help us.
I am often haunted by the possibility that answers may lie right outside the doorstep and I just overlook the obvious.
Today, I found the Benaroya Research Institute which is affiliated with Virginia Mason Medical here in Seattle.
They are conducting research in such areas as autoimmune disease, MS, asthma, allergies, arthritis, Lupus, etc. They also have a neurological division.
One area of progress is in proteins modified by stressors such as viral infections that then react to trigger autoimmunity onset. They are expanding this research into protein modification.
I will pull out pencil and paper and once again make inquiry into how their findings might overlap into our disease symptoms or to determine their awareness level of FND.
I am still searching ways to identify others with this diagnosis or symptom onset in the Western Washington area.
We keep trying every day to discover truth.
Thanks to you all. Our awareness continues with each breath.
