Thanks for the encouragement. I feel as though the last two years of my life felt like 10 years dragging by. I have to give up exercise, which is something i love in order to have some energy to get through the day. I understand that many people on here had the disease longer than I but i'm mad that I lost 2 years of a good life. As for the research, It was me who took the time to look all over the net for information that led me to Dr. Edward Conley (who's staff is not the least bit customer friendly), Dr. Lerner and this website. Where i got lucky is that I judged which doctor would be open enough to listen to what I had found from Dr. Lerner. I'm wondering about your daughter. When did she first have the infection. How long was it? What was it? How long was it treated for and with what? Also, is she still taking the medication today?
