    Woooo - I can see how that would be a really scary prospect. But if it gets you the help you need then go for it hun.

    I think everyone who watches it would only feel the utmost empathy for you. You are so, so brave to even consider this and we are all behind you all the way.

    Good luck!

    Wow Mandy, it's probably not everyone's ideal way to acheive stardom, but it could be great if they actually manage to help you, and it sounds like they think they believe they can. Think of all the researchers looking into your case for you!

    What a fantastic incentive to keep to the diet too! Keep us posted on how it all goes.

    TV isn't the only way you can get help. Get a second opinion from another doctor. Change your doctor if you are not happy with him/her. Insist that you are referred to a specialist. You could even consider paying for a private consultation.

    You have other options! You don't have to resort to going on telly. It might cause you even more stress, because you don't sound all that happy about it. And to be honest, in your position, I wouldn't either.

    Insist on better treatment, you deserve it. Good luck. :)

    Good luck hun in whatever you decide to do. You are brave enough to be a CDer so in my opinion you could take on any thing. If it gets the results you need then why not. You could still demand to see a specialist as well as.
