ComedyDork - I hate to be a pain since you probably already know about
this, but if you're next step is surgery then I have to say it. Please try the spinach and sunflower diet. I cannot believe the way my life has changed since I started it. I never thought I would feel this good. If you want to know more about
it, I would be happy to tell you what I did (and of course you can read the other threads about
it). If you don't, I'll drop it. It just sounds like you're at a crossroads. Good luck with whatever direction you take.
