 I think we all felt that at points. In the end I really wasn't too bothered about it. I never had any real stigma, I'm lucky for that, most people know its curable these days. I felt fatigue a lot, and then started training (since fallen off that wagon) and never felt better in my life. I cut out refined foods and my guts were lovely. I let the festive season seduce me though and back to all the old complaints. I found that to combat fatigue I had to move. It seems an odd solution but it built me up and helped relieve a lot of my symptoms. Sometimes its simple things like muscle loss etc that is contributing.... You'll be the on the treatment train soon, don't worry. :)

Thank you for sharing this. One thing I can say is that never ever did I feel stigmatized in all the years I had this.  I did not tell everyone I met of course and was not particularly proud of the way I got it but if I was asked, I told about my few times as a teen that I played with fire and got burned.

That really hit home. Thanks Tig. Mirrors my experience(s) with the old treatments and how I also developed long term insomnia. It truly helps when we know we are not alone.

I found an interesting article and want to share it. It's one person's story on what the cure meant to him.
