Our biggest obstacle is finding what works for us - once we do, all the 'shoveling against the tide' usually stops and we heal. I was infected for 40 years until I found what worked for me, and then I healed very quickly, and very well. The catch? It's not something that works for a lot of other people with these infections.
We never know if it's the differences between the strains we carry, or the differences between the bodies that are trying to heal -but is likely both. Without a LOT more extensive research on these diseases and treatment options will we begin to get to a point where this can be narrowed down.
In other words, it's not so much that what we know keeps us feeling like we are 'shoveling against the tide', but what we don't know that keeps us feeling like that.
