This section is about people who were told either “it’s all in your head” or there is “nothing more to be
done, you just have to live with it” or maybe even learned of a dismal prognosis that they just needed to
accept. They may have tried treatment after treatment with nothing working, perhaps juggling multiple
medications at a time. Although they suffered from different symptoms/illnesses and tried different
doctors and treatments, they have three thing in common; 1) they never gave up, 2) they went above
and beyond in looking for cures and taking charge of their own health problems (while working with
their doctors) and 3) they succeeded in conquering their illnesses.
