Psiloscribe Posted May 21, 2010 Share Posted May 21, 2010 If the following link doesn't explain why we need to push for more effective treatments, nothing will. I spoke with Will several times. I wish he'd called me Sunday. I dislike so much about the new direction and focus of conventional medicine being surgery. They tell the patient that "this is your last option, we have nothing else." When that doesn't work, what is a 24 year old kid to think? That he can wait until he's in his 50s and maybe grow out of them? What the medical community had to offer was an occipital nerve stimulator and high doses of oxycontin. As you all know, that regimen doesn't lend itself to being able to try our methods successfully. will took his own life on Sunday. The rest of the details I'll leave out with due respect to the family. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/houstonchronicle/obituary.aspx?n=will-erwin&pid=142883042 Bob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
