Friends, I am in it right now. I’ve been buried in a heap of “what’s the point?” for a couple weeks. I get to see the niece and nephew (five hours away) for Christmas, and that’s keeping me going, but just barely. I can’t even bring myself to respond, I’m feeling so defeated and utterly exhausted dealing with doctors. I had been considering a post about all my bad experiences, and this one showed up in the blogs I follow. My symptoms and illnesses are different from hers, but her story and mine, and TOO MANY others, are incredibly similar in how much suffering is caused by dismissive doctors.

As soon as my head and heart are rested and refueled a bit, I’ll have a few things to share. Right now, I’m on overload, so please, read this.
