Farrah's Story

Watched "Farrah's Story" tonight and was very touched by it. It was both uplifting and very sad. Also very frustrating as it's just not right that people in the U.S. don't have the access to alternative treatments that are available elsewhere. Fortunately, Farrah has the means to seek the alternative treatments but there are hundreds of thousands of others who don't and are pretty much at the mercy of the medical system here. I have nothing but respect for the lady, she's handled her situation extremely well and to have a camera around during those key times had to be hard, but I thank her for it and will keep her in my thoughts.

It's really too bad. Having Crohn's I look for anything that can alleviate my condition but I'm pretty much stuck with conventional medicine for the time. Can't really afford the conventional either, but what else can you do?
