Why wear a ribbon?

MDJunction to me

Hazeldee"MDJunction means that I no longer have to feel like I am the only person in
the world with pericarditis. It means that I can talk to others who know
how stressful and how painful having pericarditis can be. It means that I
connect with others to discuss treatments that have or haven't worked for us, so that we have a leg to stand on. I think that having my friends at
MDJunction has allowed me to better mentally and emotionally process my
diagnosis and what it means to me. I feel so lucky to have this community
available to me. I use MDJunction as a way to use my experience to help
others. Reaching out to help others is the only solace I have found since
being diagnosed with pericarditis.

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.
