    Where's PrincessPat to pipe up about it taking 35 years to get her diagnosis - Not meant to belittle yours.  JUST SO DAMN FRUSTRATING TO HAVE TO WAIT YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS TO GET DIAGNOSED!!!!!

    I don't like to hate people, really, but there were two or three people who testified today for whom hate is fully appropriate... ONE IN PARTICULAR who was essentially saying that all of us with vague issues like those most of us here suffer from are all just mental cases.  I had to stop listening or I was afraid I was going to reach through my computer and strangle him.  They call it 'somatic' when they think we're just carried away in our depression or whatever.  He was listing Fibro and CFS and I don't recall what all else in that category and calling us all a bunch of liars, essentially.  Truly disgusting.

    Torture: An act... specifically intended to inflict severe physical or mental pain or suffering upon another person within his custody or physical control.
