    Thanks for your response! It doesn't sound like your doctor is passing the buck - it seems like he wants you to educate yourself as much as you can! A lot of doctors don't like their patients learning too much so yours sounds like a good one! About Ireland - did you grow up in Belfast? What's it like there? I just finished reading a book called "1921" about the Irish Civil War. I've read about that part of history in Ireland before, but I really learned a lot from this book. It's a novel, but they interweave real people into it. The main place I want to go is Dublin, but I have heard that the North is beautiful and I should go there too. I want to see all the historical sites - The Rock of Cashel, Clonmacnoise, the hill-forts, castles and tombs. I even thought about learning Gaelic, but with my fibro-fog, I don't know if I could. There is an Irish store here where I live and I go in there a lot! By the way, I'm not Irish - I have no Irish blood in me - I just love the country and the people and the history! Thanks for listening!!!!
