That's wonderful. Many months symptom free.

Are you completely off treatment then? (Except

for the sleep meds?)

Can you tell me something I've been wondering

about? When you came off treatment were you

totally symptom free? Was even the fatigue gone?

Hope you enjoy many many years of symptom

free living!

Thank you for giving us all some hope. [kiss]

I think I may be beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm almost afraid to say it, though.

Jay, wonderful that you are still doing well!!!

I know you've done a LOT to get better. I'm so happy for you!!!

As I recall, you noticed a big shift in your condition when you removed a mold issue from your house.

My recollection is that you were visiting your parents and you felt much better. Then when you got home you got sicker. We discussed the possibility that mold was an issue, you tore up your carpet and things started to improve.
