There's a treatment center that specializes in IBS and has what looks like a really great approach.  There IS no one cause of IBS, it's a cluster of symptoms that can be caused by many different things.  They look for multiple things that could be causing it and treat those things with medication or diet or both, in order to bring the gut back into balance.  They claim a very high success rate.

Nothing will be covered by my insurance, though their rates are reasonable (not suspiciously so, though).  I'll have to pay for everything myself, as well as cross-country travel for a couple of days for the consult and some testing.

I don't want to do this because I'm afraid it won't help and I'm so bereft of hope already.  It's heartbreaking living like this.  I hurt most days, and suffer other symptoms on nearly all of the others.

I will need help to do this.  To organize it and get the money together.

And I'm scared of throwing money away on nothing.  I . . . I can't spare it.  If it doesn't work, I'll never get that money back.

I've been in brief contact with them and they're very level and not secretive at all, and I do plan on scheduling a phone consult to really get their measure.

I guess what I'm saying is that to do this, I'll need help, and when the time comes I really hope you'll be there to back me up.  Livejournal is even deader than it was.  I'm just so afraid.

I need hope.  And I can't afford it.  I'll make it happen because I am desperate, I absolutely will, but I'm scared.

I can't afford much, but give me a month and I'll chip in.

As much as 3,000miles of distance or an internet connect will permit, I'll help. Which probably means I can act as researcher and cheer-squad. [my google-fu is strong]

Might be worth asking if they do free assessment and/or trials though. You can't be the only person leery of risking shelling out for something that might not work for you.

Sadly, as I am unemployed I will not be able to financially contribute, but if you are going anywhere near Atlanta or Charlotte, I may be able to arrange for accommodations.

I'm too far away to render practical assistance, unfortunately, unless your cross-country travel brings you to the Pacific Northwest?
