In Life, there are some moments we wish we could take back, shooting our mouths off at an inopertune moment, rejecting a perfectly good guy for the bad boy, bad clothing and hair choices. All sorts of things but there are certain moments we can never take back. I haven't always made the wisest decisions but in this case it cost me three years and counting off my life.
Four days after college graduation, I became so ill with an infection that turned into discovering I had an immune deficency which lead me to mengitis and now an unidentifiable pain in my side worsing every day. And the cause of all my problems at 27 years young? I drank from a water fountain. One simple error in judgement.
I've been fighting for 3 years and I'm tired, emotional, physical and mentally, every single thing I've ever planned for my life has gone out the window and Any lessons that I've needed to apply for every day life including patience and faith no longer exists
It's frightening to think that I could inventibly die before the age of 30, what's even scarier is that nearly a half dozen doctors can't figure out the cause of my pain and are stonewalling me on everything and are making me out to be a hypocondraic, it's frighenting to think that some serious is going on and I'm just being thought of as a drama queen, desperate for attention or not being thought of at all. I was even told by a nurse specifically that my problems weren't priority enough to get an emergency doctor's appointment.
I've seen what happens when people fall through the medical system and it's scary and that person becames just another statisic. At Some Point, Doctors forget what it's like to be sick and scared. Because they have gone to medical school and we haven't we know nothing.but a little common sense goes a long way.
At this point in the normal 27 year old's life, I should be worried about finding a decent career and meeting Mr.Right not worrying that if I go outside and someone coughs within a thousand yards of me, I'll catch pnenomia and die.
But until I get some answers, I won't know anything, that's the most frustrating of all.
Have you ever been in a situation where you had to get answers but were constantly being stonewalled?
