It's not that I want to be sick. I just want a name. Not a barrel full of symptoms that have yet to be combined into a singular illness.
I've read that it takes several years for many chronically ill people to be diagnosed. This is very frustrating. Seeing specialist after specialist. Being dismissed and accused.
You try to join support groups for illnesses that have symptoms that you experience, but you feel left out.
You read about all the treatments people with a diagnosis are getting and fear that your body is being damaged while you wait for something to show up in a test.
Who marches for the undiagnosed? Where are our shirts? When do we get a voice? What will it take?
