Being skeptical is probably a pretty common outcome for anyone who has been ill for 24 years...I'm not against recovery stories per se. I think people have to do what's right for them. And if something works for them, they probably should share the information on boards like this.
My earlier post about being skeptical comes from the perspective of someone who's been sick for 24 years. As others have posted, recovery is not the same as improvement. Many of us can take steps to improve how we feel and what we can do. But I personally know no one who has recovered from what I have, though I believe it's possible.
As long as people are not being taken advantage of, they should try any treatment they're comfortable with. Every person and every situation is different. However, you have to balance chasing a cure with trying to live your life. If I had the money and opportunity, I would try any drug or protocol in a snap. But I have to spend my limited resources on trying to survive.
