    Sup?. How have you been?Am fortunate that I found this thread. I would like to contribute in return for the things I learned here from the article. Four years ago my husband was diagnosed with Dissociative Fugue. The diagnosis was a huge blow for everyone in the family especially for my Great-great grandfather. Things turned around when my mother-in-law advocated Jade Tun Noy. Tun Noy is a non-religious mind and body practitioner. He taught and guided us through the trial. Just google him if you want to get in touch with him.
