Anyone remember this - what were/are your thoughts on the time taken to diagnose and your feelings afterwards - posted this a couple of years ago but the newbies might like to reflect on it:
In a strange twilight zone
I find myself alone
Not knowing what the future holds
Clinging to the hope, nay belief that my mind is playing tricks.
It is all a figment of the imagination
For yesterday I could walk and run carefree
Today is different my limbs scream out in agony
And contortion of my muscles make grotesque twitching movements
The stabbing pains bring a sharp intake of breath
I sink back into the chair in the faint hope that sitting still will
Subdue the pain.
If only it were true that great British tradition a cup of tea cures all ills.
But how to get cup to mouth another obstacle to be overcome.
Quite simply every day mundane things take planning and ingenuity.
I wait in this barren city Limboland
Surely somebody out there will hear my cries and bring me in from the cold.
The long awaited consultation day comes and out the window go my
Symptoms determined as ever to make me seem the fool. Perhaps it is
All in my mind.
