How to find experiences like your own
There are more than 2,000 Personal Experiences here, and it can be hard to find exactly what you want. Here is a way to search through them.
Personal stories can be very helpful, but they may not give a true picture of the success rate of a treatment. See the Treatment section for more accurate information on success rates.
You can add your own story to this page, to ask for advice or to tell others what helped you. Or you could join a support group.
