My horrible health problems started in childhood too when I was ten. I got mono and got severely dehydrated, so I was hospitalized for a week. I was never healthy after that, and continued to get sicker and sicker over the years. I'm now 32. But maybe there is great hope with mms. I have been reading this forum for over a week now. I'm doing so many other things too right now like Iodine for example, and I just couldn't decide if I wanted to try the mms right now. I was feeling so depressed the last couple of days--like again for the millionth time, everything I'm doing is still not working. Then I read your post Jana, and it all made since what you were saying about the leaky gut syndrome. I will try to keep everyone posted on my progress with mms. It sounds like us three (me, Jana, and Ieatworld,) and I'm sure others on this forum, are in the same boat with our health right now. It feels good to have support of people that I know understand a lot of what I'm going through. Thanks again!
