Just a note to say thank you for posting your story here. You've been through an awful lot and it sounds incredibly painful, both physically and emotionally. I am glad that you have finally found a doctor who is making progress with your symptoms and who seems genuinely interested in all aspects of your problem.
I'm also glad that you have some anti-anxiety medicine, and I'm not surprised at all that you've needed it after what you've been through. Do you still research all the time, or has that relaxed as well? Have you stopped crying quite so much?
