Welcome - your story was def. interesting you seem like a funny gal...with the batman comments and all. I have been fighting for a diagnosis for around a year- after researching as you have to lab. findings, symtoms, treatments, and such - i've pushed it on different doctors and finally got to see a rheumy last Thursday- she believes me- and after seeing pictures i took of my facial rash and others she ran tons of lab work for me and I find on the 24th what her dx is...besides Antiphospholipid Syndrome which I recently found out my OB doc dx me with after 3 miscarriages (but which he never told me) The only reason I knew is b/c my PCM on base ran tests for that and decided thats what it was after reading my charts from the OB and saw that he had already dx-ed me with this. So I understand your battle with the docs fully- as does almost everyone on this site I'm sure. This site is one of the best things I have fumbled across in helping with my dx- I ask tons of questions maybe a little annoying from time to time - BUT great with helping me on doctors appts. SO ONCE again as I quit babbling on now- welcome!
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I STILL HAVE A DREAM!
