Brief Answer:
I understand. You have a NO FAULT illness. Kindly read carefully.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

1. I would suggest that you be as XXXXXXX with your liver specialist as required.

2. In general, it's the duty of your doctor to help you out and protect you and
understand you.

3. After all, you've paid for your liver specialists services.

4. What's happening to you, is very common. It happens to more people than
you think, I mean, well, there is no shame or loss of prestige in telling your
liver specialist about the beer or alcohol.

5. 9 times out of 10, your doctor will agree with you and keep this in confidence, if he is a good doctor.

6. If not, then no one has the right to make you suffer. Change doctors.

7. You mention that your states of beserker rage from pacidity, bothers you.
If you were wrong, or evil, or mentally defective,or even diseased, YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER EVER WRITTEN TO US STATING THAT YOUR BEHAVIOUR
BOTHERS YOU, THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE IT, BUT COULD NOT, BUT WOULD IF YOU COULD.

8. You can probably enjoy a beer or two in moderation, once you learn to take
it like a gentleman. There are no issues here.

9. Considering your liver issues, you have to tell your doctor about it. It's his
duty, his job, his knowledge of medicine to help you out.

You can overcome this challenge easily. It also helps to open out to an understanding person. You can nowadays even find a support group to
help you out. There are many local ones and online ones even. Surf the web.
make sure they are genuine HIPAA compliant websites like us and not scams.

As I repeat, wine is fine, just learn to handle it like a gentleman.

I am 100% confident, that the day will come when you can enjoy your drink
remaining in total control of yourself.

Regards, Be open with your doctor.
