Help the Undiagnosed
Organized by: Lisa Cook
I have been ill for 2+ years, I have seen countless doctor's and procedures that include lymph node retraction, bone marrow biopsy, ct scans, PET scan, bone scan, lumbar puncture and so much blood I am surprised I have any left. The doctor's keep saying we are getting closer to a diagnosis, but nothing yet; every week I hear a different doctor tell me I am an interesting case. My bloodwork and symptoms clearly say there is something wrong; it's not made up in my head. I was the sole provider for my family because my husband has been disabled for 10 years and still fighting the government to get his monthly disability payments. In May I had to stop working and even though my doctor has approved short term disability for me, the insurance company is putting up a fight, I have not been paid for 3 MONTHS. We have sold everything that had any value which wasn't a lot, because we sold a lot after my husband's accident. We drive old cars, one phone, no cable, no internet, very basic living. The local churches and rent help facilities are out of funds. Please help if possible, we are good people and would not ask if we were not desperate. Thanks for looking Lisa.
