Glad you got your disability and sorry to hear about the bad day, and the increase in meds. I think it's great that you are going to help train future doctors about this disease. If I had to remember anything over the past few years they'd be out of luck. Let us know if they are able to correctly diagnose you. It would boost my moral knowing that another doctor actually takes this condition seriously.


Best wishes

Congratulations, Lyndylou!


I'm going to place my sclero bet that the trainee doctor will not be able to properly diagnose you. But I sure hope I'm wrong!

Warm Hugs,
