Left Turn!


Hello Reader!


I know, it has been a while.  I have been on an interesting journey!

Last year, my 28 year chronic illness journey sort of took a left turn off of the highway last year to a very unexpected improvement that I still don’t know what to make of it!

I sort of don’t know what hit me!

I had no idea that a test I had in 1996, was a result that had been causing all of the misery for all of these years! This has been a huge surprise!

After 28 years, I have an improved quality of life which I stumbled on unexpectedly starting with that visit to the cardiologist last year!

I still do not know what to make of this because of all of those years of such a terrible quality of life and actually waiting to die as well as making plans along the way to possibly end it sooner!

Thank all of you who have stopped by to read what I have written previously! I do appreciate you so much!

As you can see, I was really a cranky patient tired suffering with chronic illness for years as well as watching all of my fellow friends and patients suffer because of lack of treatment related to the illness criteria and incorrect information given to providers as far as treatment and all of us patients having to be “our own researchers” telling our doctors what we need and how to treat us!

I am not cured, but have a better quality of life! I hope some of you can find this as well as it may not be over yet!

So stay tuned! I will be back soon!
