how are you doing? It has been a while since your post. Your story is EXACTLY like mine. I can say now that I have been working on my health "conciously" for 10 years now, and I can say that I have come a long way. It took a lot of time and many different books and supplements and practitioners, but now I know what works for my body. I can finally say I have a higher quality of life. Not perfect, but much much better.
