I am 15 months on the protocol, I too was in agony. At times I wanted to give up or die. Well today I can tell you that if you follow the protocol to the letter you WILL feel better. Everyone has different timing in their healing. Mine took longer than I had hoped but here I am today feeling darn close to my old self. Two years ago I didn’t know how I would be able to cope. I was on Cymbalta for many years for fibromyalgia and was also diagnosed with Sjogren’s disorder. Today I declared myself ready to start back to a fitness regime. For me this is a monumental step and proof that #theprotocolworks ! I am very grateful to have found this group, many thanks to Bob Diamond and all who volunteer their time and knowledge on our behalf . Please stay the course it’s worth it.
