I wish I knew, Helen, but I think it's HIGH TIME somone was made to see this
problem for what it truly is. A very debiolitating & painful disease that
strikes at any given moment. ARD does not care if you're walking down the
street...or down the stairs...or at work tring to eek out a living as a
productive human being. The pain just comes, like a shot in the dark, &
brings you to your jknees. HARD!!! I ebginning to realize I have to get
agressive w/the people who are "in charge of my health & health care". Doing
it will be like pulling teeth, but do it I must! Who wants to work around
someone who has gas attacks she can';t run away from fast enough. Who can;t
wear just any clothing cuz it hurts to have anything touching your
mid-seciton, God, the list just goes on & on.
Maybe we need tobe more forceful about our adhesions, get a petition together
& bug them til they can't stand to hear from us anymore.
