BUT I am German, and eventhough I m better now about this whole issue due to therapy, Im still experiencing symptoms and I have friends who have mild symptoms aswell. Very interesting: there was a woman on the german version of "I am a celebrity get me out of here" who was talking publicly about her struggle, in camp. And she said that she has a lot of friends who suffer from it aswell. She was a z - celeb and talked on it on national tv, which was bold to me.
So maybe you´re really on to sth.
