Bad news is I'm barred from the trial studies because of my severe case history (boo, that's a super lame reason). Good news is, the company admires what I'm doing and is willing to work with me on the out-of-pocket expense (typical set-up is that you purchase 3 years of it up-front, which is a couple grand).
I won't start any of this until my Xiaolan protocol is through, which is beginning of March, and by that point I'm hopeful to have found a suitable US doctor to supervise my long-term care and help me decide what kind of test-lab to make my body into (**lets go ahead and say the natural kind).
Steps. Steps. One step at a time. Making progress. Changing everything.
