Brokenwing, I am so sorry for all you have been through and I understand your anger, I have been there and still am at times. When you are in pain so much it seems like the other emotions tend to be magnified (for me) but some days I just don't care and that isn't healthy either! I understand how frustrating all of it is and my sympathy is with you, I wish I could give you a great suggestion but unfortunately sometimes you have to stick with the trial and error and I know it is hard-look at all the women looking at going to Germany, that tells you something!! Anyway don't give up there are doctor's that will do their best to help you but I do agree with your husband in many cases and it is a sad commentary on our health care professionals of today. I don't remember where you live but if you haven't branched out in your search for doctors you may want to. Give your husband a hug for being there for you and keep venting and getting informed on your condition, education and perseverance are the best weapons we have at times. Good luck ann-georgia >
