    Yeah, I was pretty deflated by the BWG, not that it was unexpected. I still find it hard to believe scientists will put ego before patients.

    This is a bit of a pick-me-up. I believe the outing of VP62 thing cleared the air for things to go forward. I am still skeptical about Lipkin, but his more recent comments seem to suggest he genuinely thinks there is something in what Mikovits is doing.

    At the conference, Annette was firmly convinced that her team would get to the bottom of this. She kept repeating that whatever it is, they will figure it out. It gave me a boost to keep going.

    I talked to Dr. Mikovits and thanked her for all she is doing for us. We talked about what a bad few months it has been for her but she said she had a positive and welcoming experience at the conference. Many of the other doctors and researchers, as well as patients, supported her and were interested in chatting to her. At least she was in an environment that overall supports her work rather than at a retro-viral conference surrounded by Dr. Coffins!

    Thanks Gamboa!

    Do you remember what Dr Coffin used as his arguments that day?

    :D

    ear to ear grin.

    Sounds like people are figuring out the media's illusionary opinion doesn't matter, it's the science and the ones honestly studying it that do!

    WooT WooT! That is great news!
