I am watching the "Intervention" program and the woman has "Stills Disease", this is the first I have heard of it. The woman was also tested for Lyme and was positive. Does anyone have experience or knowledge of this? I read about it online but curious if anyone has experience with it.

Is this that Brooke girl?? If it this, then I hated the way her family treated her, made me sooo angry. I cant beleive they told her she couldnt be there for her niece's birth, and couldnt have that part in the wedding and had to sit out. I wonder whatever happened to her?? I saw this episode last year, it was suppose to be a repeat tonight on Brooke. You can tell she's in pain by her hands, but I do think she's taking way TOO much pain medication, I've never heard of anyone passing out like that from just taking small amounts of pain meds like she was claiming (if I remember right she was taking oxycontin and norco), you can tell she was taking way more then was prescribed. Even her parents said she was going to a bunch of doctors and not telling the doctors she saw the other doctor. But hopefully her doctors saw the intervention and put a stop to the taking too much meds and kept a closer eye on her, and if she wasnt taking too much, then she needed to be monitored more closly for side effects, cause I've only seen people passing out like that from taking heroin, so she had to be taking ALOT.

The episode was about Brooke- the most difficult thing to watch was to see that some family members didn't believe she had pain and all they saw was the excessive self-medicating. The looks on one sisters face told volumes- she didn't believe in Brooke's disability and pain. We have all dealt with so many of the same issues, her family even mentioned on more than one occasion that she had seen "doctors" and they were contradictory of each other's opinions and diagnoses. argh.

yeah, I really beleive she was in severe pain, you can by looking at her, but she was abusing the prescriptions period. Passing out on the floor is just a sign of way too much meds, I guess I could be wrong, I sure hope not. I know alot of people who have pain and take narcotics that I have yet to find any of them on the floor (except for a neighbor who had surgery, and only took one lortab and passed out and had to be rushed to he hospital, who's daughter found him on the kitchen floor). But in the past 7 years I've taken narcotics, I have never woke up on any floor, especially not in my tacobell dinner. But I am glad they didnt send her to a rehab center for drug addicts, but a place to help manage her pain better, which last I heard she didnt do well, but I didnt watch the one last night to see if there was an update. But maybe alot of the overmedicating was cause of the fact ehr family treated her really badly, and she was trying to numb the "emotional pain" that they where causing her. Because if my family treated me that badly, especailly when her mom hung up the phone on her when she sister gave birth, I would also be depressed and very angry. But I really hope she is doing better, she deserves it, nobody in pain deserves to be treated like garbage, I really bet if her family supported her alot more, she wouldnt do those things again and actually get the proper treatment.

ps, for anyone that missed this episode, they have it on youtube, and you type in "A&E intervention Brooke", they have the full episode (in 5 parts though) so you can watch.
