I'm just going to drop it, I think, because further comment
will likely lead to more fasle allegations and conclusions.
Unless! Unless, you want to move forward and stay on subject.
The VCS was a great way for me to confirm my percieved or
believed improvement with cholestyramine, and decline with
reexposure and/or new exposures. But, that's Dr. Shoemaker's
on going effort/work.
Sally, I am glad to hear you are doing so well!! My
gosh...what a relief, I know the feeling. Hey, I'm back to
early mornings without an alarm clock, and no longer require
the 2-3 hour procedure for slow and painful wake-up/arise
johancodie's a nice guy, means well, and I should back off on
the criticism, if he has similar health problems. I had a
very difficult time with thought processes as you did.
Keep in touch, and thanks for your responseon MCS/Mold. I
still think, the agency employee exposure, was a result of
the combination (triazoles enhance cell permeability). The
site remains abandoned.
