Another unknown disease. I'm a mystery.

by HopeInPain on November 18, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Today was another example of an unknown physical ailment. Once again they've "never seen anything like it" and have no what it is or what to do. Off to another doctor first thing in the morning!

If it's not one thing it's another.
