    hope ther is someone else out there who understands my confusion and frustration in not knowing what to do

    1. Hi Kathryn and sorry to hear about your health issues.
      All what we do is publish studies we find – with free access – so that the general public, DES victims and the medical profession can get some additional information regarding the multiple side effects related to the DES drugs.
      For advice and support, you should contact your official DES action group.
      Best wishes
