Why is it when others give advice about so-called treatments ie special diet/acupuncture/holistic/chinese herbs etc and I don't immediately say hey that's a great idea I'll try that today, they get that look or tone that says you poor closed minded woman you aren't open to any help so it's your own fault if your hair doesn't grow back! I've had this conversation so many times it's getting old. These days I just nod politely and move on. However, some people don't know when to back off. Even when I've said I've tried this and that, that what I have is an auto immune disease and doesn't respond to strengthening my immune system they persist. Since having polymyalgia rhuematica which is another auto immune disease I get the same advice. I'd like a short simple answer to stop them in their tracks but haven't found it yet.
