Heya, folks! Just wanted to give a quick heads up on what's going on with me.
I've been going to doctors for 6 years for chronic foot, joint, and sometimes muscle pain and an abundant supply of seemingly random and sporadic symptoms that come and go (but never seem to actuality permanently go away.) In addition, i'm also 65 pounds underweight and unable to ever gain any.
6 years, 11 different doctors and specialists who pretty-much say, "Well that's weird. I believe you, but I've got genuinely no idea. Good luck!"
Well, 1 week ago i went to stanford and was diagnosed with EDs type 3. ...Long story short, it's good news because it's the only condition out of all the ones considered that would not have killed me by 40. EDs type 3 will not kill me at all. However, it's also not curable. They're recomending physical therapy, pain management for flare up days, a cane, and kneebraces whilst sleeping.
So i'm now the 20 year old walking around with a cane and with joint pain. And... It's been working. It helps. I really hate having people in their 50s rushing to open the door for me, though. That part has been awkward. I am living on my own and in another state from my family now, so i haven't yet figured out how to tell them i'm using a cane from now on.
In other news, i'll be making a massive (and long term) move from California to Texas in December by car. For those of you not familiar that's basically a 1775 mile drive. That... Will be interesting. But, i'm looking very-much forward to it. I'm a Texan and I'll be moving back to be around my family and go to school.... In time for my brother's wedding.
Anywho, That's basically what's going on with me. ^_^
