    • I can relate. I agree with the void thing. It's kind of a distraction. I decided to distract myself with something else: running. It keeps me slim and fit so appeals to my vanity....(more) 7 hr 34 min ago
      And it's also pretty affordable. And bc I'm in shape and like my body, I find myself buying less clothes bc I overall look better in what I already have now.

He also noted that the treatment proposed had not been used in patients with the same mutation as Charlie Gard, nor with patients with encephalopathy, as he had. There have been no published case studies of the proposed treatment in any patient group."
