The list of illnesses I suffer from is exhausting. I have always had some sort of pain syndrome, an illness, always falling and breaking bones, riding horses from the time I was a baby to adulthood, car accidents, strokes and ten major surgeries with six organs removed and what is left in my body inflamed or already damaged. I grow tumors and cysts and no one knows why. The masses destroy whatever they have implanted themselves into. I have had organs removed that were beyond dead. So bad that twice the surgeon was disgusted that I had been left in that condition for as long as I was.
I was diagnsoed with MALS in 2020 and it has been the greatest feeling! For years I wrote blogs about being undiagnosed and most of my mental healthy issues were stemming from lack of understanding and knowledge by the doctors. Now I am no longer a mystery as MALS causes so many other illnesses that all go hand in hand in what I have been dealing with.
The good news is that I am now getting diagnosed which means medications for the first time in my life. I am so thrilled that we are finding medications that are helping me. Also, when we try a new medication and it works that helps with the doctors being able to properly diagnose me.
