MDJunction to me

cinderella"MDJunction to me is a life saver... when i first was diagnosed with Scheuermann's Disease i wrote a message to a page i found on google, hoping that they could help me.... you'd never know it but that weird feeling (you know that one where it feels like someone actually cares) came over me when i opened my email next day to find that someone on the other side of the world (at the American Medical Library)had read my message while i was sleeping, and there low and behold was the address to MDJunction.... well it is everything to me, i live it breathe it and love it!!!!! I have found many people who are struggling with similar issues banding together to help each other. It is the best place in the world, and i couldn't think of another place to go to meet so many lovely people....

thanks MDJunction

MoonGoddess45 I'm new here...I found you guys on a web search regarding Lyme. Am presently in a similar boat as I have read all of you are...the thing is when you have something like this, none of your friends or family can understand how you feel or what your going through..and sometimes I think it's unfair of me to think they should. It's kind of like needing a 12 step share our strengths and recovery! ...Read More

My GI doc doesn't believe in Candida~!!

Jan 21 2011

Ya know dealing with the medical community and dismissive attitudes because it's not in their arena of knowledge nor do they beleive  or wish it to be is so frustating. My GI guy wants to scope me, and endoscopy and colonoscopy. I told him I have been on lyme treatment of antibiotics for over a year. I told him I felt Candida was the culprit and could he check me for it?

He flat out said "no", he said if you had it that bad you wouldn't be able to sit up and talk to me now as you are....nor does he believe in chronic Lyme, or any of the vitamins and herbs , he called them "hocus pocus" .  This was all said to me in my visit last week.  Oh and he asked me, well how does your stomach feel? I said "inflamed" it hurts....he then repremanded me telling me I was using a self diagnosed word wrong and not to go there. Holy shit.  Now I don't even want to go for these procedures. He is narrowed minded, he may know what he knows well.....but I can't stand feeling he doesn't respect my thoughts. I almost feel it's a man/women thing with him.
