Hi, Iam in the same boat, I did treatment for years and had to stop. Fighting them they fight back, squirming, biting ect..glad to hear you are making progress. The smaller ones will die off, the larger ones for me are untouchable. I can hardly stand up either. No one would listen to me or help so I am alive only by the grace of God but very disabled. No diagnosis , no disability insurance, I find little ways to survive. Its been hell. I cant fight them with meds anymore, my stomach cant tolerate the meds any longer.
