JL I was just about to agree with you! It just seems like it would be overwhelming for someone newly diagnosed to come onto this board looking for information because there are so many differing opinions but I guess I see the positive side of that too.

lol yes... luckily we have lots of other info on LDN and CCSVI, in order to help with decision-making. but as for overwhelming, i think the internet itself is overwhelming. the forum provides some sifting. nuggets filtered out by folks who already know the right search terms etc. the people who don't want to be offered our thoughts are lurking instead of signing on. anyone who makes an account here has probably got a reasonable expectation of participating in a conversation, and with all the different subject areas on the site you'd kind of think, probably i'm going to hear about a lot of different ideas here. even given that, i've been on here the whole time since 06, and still don't know anything about most of the content. one good thing about reading is that you can take your time and mull everything over, evaluate information, and read just exactly as fast or as slow as you like. i'm the insatiable type myself
but i certainly do pick and choose what i'm insatiable about.
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
