MDJunction to me

geeterman"When I was first diagnosed with RP I had trouble finding information and then making sense of some of the info I found. So I thought who better to talk to than people who also have the disease. I stumbled upon MD Junction and found the information and support I was hoping for. I now visit the Junction everyday and look forward to giving someone else the help or direction that they may be searching for. I get a few minutes on occaision from a doctor here at the Junction I can reach out to someone everyday." (geeterman)

They shouldall have to go through sensitivity training or something. They are fighting so hard to keep me from getting this help. I have been to so many doctors they were shuffling me around to find a docto...
