Oh Janye, this is a lot to deal with. I'm so sorry. I too have been told many times 'I've maybe seen this 1 time before in my 20+ yrs of practice' or 'this usually happens to people 50 yrs your senior' and it's just not what you want to hear as a young person dealing with illness. Wishing you lots of support in your grieving and healing. Thank you for sharing your experiences so openly. You are wonderful ❤️

Thanks for articulating and sharing your experience. Sharing with a friend who works with ppl with chronic pain - this is a valuable resource for those experiencing the loss of health & mobility, and the people who witness and support loved ones going through this. Sending you the good, healing wishes.
