As you know, there’s a certain helplessness that comes with feeling like no one understands, so learning that someone does alleviates that to some degree. I’m sorry that your HMO does not seem to be adequately meeting the needs of your/our condition. Frustration with ineffective treatments and approaches is one of the most hurtful parts of this, I think. Hold on, Leslie, there will be better days.
