Some docs want it to reach out and BITE 'em... lolol - I went through that for what? almost 20 years. But is it really over yet? The hematologist says I have lupus. The pcp says I have lupus. But the rheumy says "We'll have to see what your blood work shows in June."... lolol

Wishing you well, not lupus. Better it be something a bit easier to deal with, though when it comes to AI stuff, is there *really* such an animal?... We're praying for you.

Some docs just don't like using certain words I think. It took my neuro a year and a half to say the word parkinson's to my face. He'd written it on orders for MRIs on my prescriptions but this last appointment was the first time he'd ever said it.

Who knows,
