Hi, J.J.J.

It matters not a whit which diagnosis this is. The only thing that matters is what to DO about it!

I know that this is a different way for you to think but the old way has lead you to where you are!

Only strict wellness (see the home page and the archives about that) will bring you back to health within a year. This has already lasted all your life so what is a year?

If you know you do not have the personal discipline to do this, don't bother since it will only complicate your life.
Your alternative is living the way you have been while gradually getting worse for the rest of your life.

Be sure to look at the archives about chronic EBV and CFS while you are at it.

If once you have done your homework, you still have questions, write again.

Walt
