I understand all too well your difficulties with our current medical system. No, I'm not a doctor, I'm a Medical Technologist (person who tests blood in a hospital lab) but currently a stay at home mommy. I have been reading a lot lately on mental illness, autism, food allergies, toxicity and the related ails that go with this. Until 3 months ago I believed that our current health care system was sufficient and good and I thought all "alternative" medicines (herbs, vitamins, diets) were a bunch of "snake oils". Now I know first hand that the conventional medicine really stinks, and there is some truth to the "alternative". I know I sound crazy but I suspect that there are government and pharmaceutical company conspiracies, not for the good of the most of us, but for the benefit of a select few. The best thing to come about has been the internet and availability for people to take their issues into their own hands. Those of us with internet access and ability to read and absorb medical info. are the real lucky ones. I'm so worried that there are many many more who don't have this gift, and are not treated. I want to help, but I am only one person raising a little family on one income and I hardly know where to begin. Well, I suppose these little chat spots are a good start. Thanks for listening to my soap box. I hope that info helps. I would love to hear what you find, if SI fits you or not, I am interested in what you find. Occupational therapists are the people who would know more about SI and do "therapy" to help it. I can go for some of the "therapy" stuff, but I would prefer finding the cause. It seems to me that would be the best way to tackle the problem.
