Dear Kristin, I shed a tear over your post today. I was not aware of that Jea-Marc suffered from this terrible condition . I have friends who suffer from it, and as so many of your lovely supporters have commented,there are many things that work for some people, but sometimes nothing seems to help. My heart goes out to you and your family and there are many prayers coming your way from both Ron and Me. xxoo, Lynn
