ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
2 years I’ve been sick had a temperature one night and went to bed. I woke up the next morning feeling hot and sweaty I tried to get out of my bed but I fell. All my limbs felt 100 times heavier. My head felt like a bowling ball I couldn’t keep up. My eyesight was blurry and everything looked bigger. After several trips to the ER my parents decided to take me to Cincinnati for a neurologist. I’ve had a MRI, EMG, EEG, and blood worked done. Muscle twitching was starting to come up everywhere along with cramps all over my body. I can barely walk without feeling heavy and falling over. My symptoms flare up and I no longer attend school. I stay in my room all day doing chores If I don’t feel as sick as I was the previous day. I’ve had a time where I purchased a gun to end my suffering. But I couldn’t go through with it. I got rid of it, but I knew I wasn’t going to get better. I feel as if I’m a burden to my family. They’ve tried everything! I quit hanging out with friends, going outside, going to school, playing video games, socializing, barely eating, and I just lay in my dark room hoping the day goes by fast so I can go to sleep again. My life is no longer me playing football and being some what of a popular kid. It’s full of depression, sickness, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Spending thousands of dollars on doctors that say they can’t help.
