I remember being healthy. I keep that image in my mind to try and help me get through day by day. Now my hands and feet are limited.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and Fibromyalgia at age 11. When it hit, it hit hard. Bones began to swell tremendously. My weight dropped qujckly. Felt like i was dying. My dad took me to the hospital and they drew blood. Came back and pulled my dad outside and said "Your son's blood count is 2! We have an ambulance ready to take him to Albany." On the way to Albany, i remember crossing over...i could tell every detail but to much typing on that. I took the doctors almost a whole month, everything test they could think of was coming back negative and every blood transfusion, the blood would go somewhere but they couldn't figure it out! They finally decided to test the bone marrow and when they did, they found the arthritis. It just got worse from there. In less then 2yrs it done a tremendous amount of damge. My hands and feet are limited. My body produces 3x's the amount of protein and basically starts to incase the damaged joints into one solid bone. My doctors say im a mystery because the results of the X-rays show i shouldnt be able to walk at least stand. It just seems like everytime i see a doctor, i get diagnosed with something else and then comes more meds. I try dealing with the pain day by day just to make ends meat to support my family. I just wish i didnt have to deal with what i have but i know its here forever. Maybe God has a purpose for this happening to me and i can only pray it turns out good🙏
