Currently contemplating treatment

I have a very random. Complicated. One of the kind cases. 

Need to speak to someone who has time and may need to do research. 

I have questions, which I understand may not be able to be answered but hopefully some stats or facts could be sent my way. 

Obviously need someone who could take that little extra time to understand the physical, medical, mental, personal, family side of things that are currently affecting decision making. 

Kind regards
