Dear Millie, you have every right to feel angry, but it's only hurting you. Even though your "medical helpers" have been awful, I find that when I get angry, I hurt ,and hurt and hurt some more.I know its hard, but you have found this site now and for your own sake please try to let the anger go, even if it's visualizing your doctor floating up, up ,and away out of earth's gravitational field. With love and caring, Sally Grigg
