Yep..bill said it! I'm one that has gone thru Diagnosis (dx) hell. It took 3 yrs to get a dx & by that time I was bedridden & had ruined my career! My family, friends even ME - started questioning if this was real or imagined! The pain was verrrry real but when u keep getting told "Come back in 3 mos" ..the disappoint is hard to articulate!
BUT ..I finally did get a dx (uh..well several of them) & my family is behind me now & I feel supported. Embracenews..your time will come - Pls don't lose hope! Hugs to you!
