Your family and friends believe in mainstream medicine, but you don't have to listen to them. You are making yourself a victim by doing so. You are like a little boat floating downstream and everyone is giving you a push to be sure that you get to the end because they believe that is the right thing for you to do. You are pleasing them and dying in the process. But, what do you want to do? Sure, you feel so lousy right now, but what does your inner you want? You need to turn on the engines of your little boat, turn it around, and start chugging back upstream under your own power and take whatever route you want to take. It is YOUR journey! :)
Please do read what the others have suggested. Love yourself enough so that you can take charge of your own treatments.
