Ah the joys of medicine in 2016. Should be amazing, right? Try being shuffled from doctor to doctor. Never getting an actual diagnosis. Always being told “this just isn’t my specialty, you should see X.” Meanwhile you’re in CONSTANT pain, still lose time, can’t think the way you used to and certainly let’s not forget the FANTASTIC panic attacks that take over your day at the mere hint of the “poisoner” and debilitating exhaustion.
But doctors…… doctors don’t want to touch you. What if what THEY do has an adverse effect on the arsenic damage?! Better to let you live on the point of breaking. Much better than helping someone.
How did this happen?……. You may be asking. I’ll be posting the lovely steps in my journey through arsenic poisoning and how I’m getting past it and rebuilding my life.
