For me it was the test Med's. I didn't have much hope for them when I started but the change in ME was amazing. I had a bit of the energetic self I was missing so much. I am now pretty much off of them and dragging my a**. I had enough troub... Read more

That only ate oatmeal. He stayed inside and visited with people he trusted that lived in the same building or were invited in by those who knew them. I wondered if he had agoraphobia. I couldn't get him to leave even to take a walk. He was a... Read more
