You can do it. Don't let the fear stop you. If you feel like it's too much going to a club then you don't have to do it. Remember you're in control of your life. You don't need to go to a club to know you're cured. Just doing day to day things should help. Then when you get strong enough you can go to a quaint gathering. It really depends on where you are mentally.
No I'm not a sufferer anymore. My FBO came from overdosing on spirulina and chlorella. Once I stopped taking those the smell went away. Now I'm battling the paranoia of thinking I smell. I know how the people here suffer though and I sympathize. So don't feel bad about the reception your receiving. I can tell you're real.
