  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • While dealing with pain, depression,blood clots L4-5 laminectomy, giant ovarian cysts ruptures that lead to an appy and lots and lots of stomach pain. I was dx'd with Sarcoidosis and a few other autoimmune diseases. The shrinks insisted I was bipolar(until I was finally tested years later..guess what NOT BIPOLAR!) Now suffering from the side effects of the meds (anti-psychotics) I never needed! I learned how to chew gum in my sleep thanks to the AP's and much more..Lucky to be ALIVE!
