"All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That is his." Oscar Wilde.

Reading your experiences today was very sad-making. I suppose at least your consultant got to see just how difficult life is for you. I hope it spurs him on to find a super effective treatment regime for you.
I hope you are sleeping like a baby as I type and wake on the morning feeling refreshed and looking like the wonderful daughter your mother produced.

I can feel the sadness coming from your post and hope that your doctor really took on board just how badly you have been affected.
It sounds like he could not have failed to do so.

It's the lack of sleep, yawny. It slows us down mentally and trashes our memory.

((yawny)) I hope you feel better soon. I'm glad you have your husband to help answer questions. Sometimes when the stakes are very high, it's hard to put things into words. That might have been part of it too.

You all are so very sweet...between food intolerances that I'm still figuring out, life issues, new symptoms, and trying new medications, I've been a bit wiped out. So very nice to have a place to just sit, kick up my jerky legs, and chat with kind people that totally, and completely freakin get it.
