Sur Insta, on m'a souvent reprochée d'être virulente contre les médecines alternatives ou les maladies "non reconnues". Je reçois parfois des messages "je sais que t'es contre, mais pour moi ça a marché, alors je partage quand même avec toi" #DONT
Voilà pourquoi ⬇
2010, je viens de me fiancer. Je prépare mon mariage et mon M1 MEFEA (pour prof d'anglais). Ma soeur a toujours eu une santé pourrie. Ma mère a passé sa vie chez les magnétiseurs, rebouteux et autres homéopathes. Culpabilité maternelle oblige face à la santé de son ainée
ma mère cherche depuis toujours "une cause" qui expliquerait pourquoi ma soeur a une santé si défaillante. Et pourquoi elle aussi, au passage, souffre de tant de choses inexpliquées (mon diag subjectif de personnel non médical : trauma psy sur trauma psy ça aide pas à aller bien)

76 yr old Mom needs help…
In 2011 I was bitten by a tick. I have a brain tumor/IIH & such severe intestinal damage that I CANNOT digest food w/out enteral food RX. It's $198/wk, even w/pharma discount. My (now) 77-year-old Mom is my caregiver but she can't afford it. Don't have enough to eat/save 🏡. 😭
I contracted E
Chaffeensis, Rickettsia of unknown etiology, & #LymeDisease. I just had 8th spinal tap to relieve pressure on my brain.
I'd been on antibiotics for 19 yrs.
I caught Coxsackie B4 virus-a cousin of polio. Lost most use of (L) side.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. #Lyme

The heavy-handed (totally out of context) physician commentary on the cases of patients they have never seen or interacted with is so irresponsible. #Afflicted
I have *never* heard of some of the doctors commenting on Jamison's case. This means they don't regularly see ME patients, don't research the disease, and have zero clinical or research expertise. #Afflicted
They filmed at a Stanford symposium that included top researchers from around the world, yet decided to use totally unrelated, nonexpert interviews to comment on Jamison's case in order to convey a POV that fit their narrative. #Afflicted
