Well said. Sounds reasonable. I would rather like it to be some kind of scab, so that the "leave it alone" theory makes more sense.. :)
I too think we have to accept this... there is no way around it, even though it is very, very tough. But I really can't see anything good this condition has given me. If it eventually goes away, I might keep up the very healthy Diet I am doing now. That might make me live a little longer. If my EC does stay the way it is now, I don't see me getting very old though.. :) Other than that.. I don't see the value ;) I might then be more empathic or "a better person"... but not until this condition does resolve.
