I think what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. I'm trying not to be bitter, and what helps me is to remember what I have found as a result of my gallbladder removal, which is this knowledge of alternative medicine. Even though we don't have gallbladders and we had to go through that whole experience, we can do these flushes and cleanses and eat right and we can live happy normal lives. A lot of people who have their gallbladders don't have that knowledge (hopefully many will soon), but I'm glad I've learned about it at a young age instead of when I'm 60 with high cholestrol,no gallbladder, arthritis, heart troubles, and everything else, and to only know that I should shove pills down my throat and have surgeries to make things better. I'm glad I've learned how to take control. Remember that. Think about people you are going to be able to help as a result of overcomig your stuggles.
