Oct 2, 2016 · Scary,strange,possibly"near death"symptoms:begging for some insight in Just Want to Talk

I’m curious to know where you and your husband live? I moved from MI to FL 2 years ago. I’m 46. NO support in SW FL but LOVE tropical weather. But health care HORRIBLE here. Is it Fort Meyers, FL or Florida all together. Being disabled/experienced RN from MI I KNOW the difference if good/bad care.
What happened with your husband? I have multiple issues right now. Was brain in 2003 then gastrointestinal now have Lupus and end liver disease from becoming an alcoholic during sad divorce 10 years ago. How has your husband’s care been with Mayo? Did they coordinate his care well? Come to a diagnoses and treat him well? Thank you. Kelly

Oct 2, 2016 · LIVER DISEASE FROM ALCOHOLISM AND LIFE IN JACKSONVILLE AREA AND MAYO in Just Want to Talk

46/F who relocated from SW Michigan to SW Florida (Fort Meyers) 2 years ago with sick friend. LOVE THIS AREA. TROPICAL. HOWEVER, being a disabled nurse I know the health care HERE (JUST SW FL or entire state?) I became alcoholic 9 years ago. Now dead liver. Wondering about Jacksonville and experience with Mayo there, liver support, etc. Worth the move from THIS part of FL?

Hi Jody. Relocated from MI to FL 2 years ago. 46/F. JUST joined this today. Started with WEIRD GI symptoms 10 Yrs ago. I’m a disabled RN. THEN I get to FL (Fort Meyers, love SWF weather BUT have NO support people except my friend who came with me). Anyway, my mom moved to Jacksonville, FL from MI recently. LOVES it. But it’s MUCH colder and NOT NEARLY as tropical as where I’m at now in FL. Anyway, when divorced 9 yrs ago became alcoholic, killed liver, now Lupus and horrible skin condition. NOBODY has been able to figure out……keep suspecting LIVER. But nobody knows. Care in FL, at least SW FL has been HORRIBLE. I am pretty sure I’m going to move to Jacksonville, FL. Wondering what people have told you about their experiences in Florida and what YOU decided. Where are you from?
