Tired of being dismissed
My plight to understand my health issues has led me to believe that there are systemic problems in our modern society. I found that more research was done a few decades ago on "brain allergies" and the link between food allergies and psychotic symptoms, including depression and schizophrenia. It seems that research in this area has declined. In my quest to understand whether I have food allergies and whether they have contributed to my depression, I have been dismissed by many members of the medical community. As a lawyer in a large city, I feel that I don't have a community of my own that supports me in my journey to achieving good health. I decided that I wanted to build my own on-line community, in an anonymous fashion, to lend humor to those suffering from allergies, depression and irritation with the medical community. I have found that satirical writing on the subject has helped immensely with my depression by giving me a sense of relevance and purpose.
