My name is E. I’m a 35 year old woman who started suffering from an ever increasing number of physical problems about 6 years ago. Some of my health problems now have names and courses of action that go with them, and some of them still do not.
The process of waiting for my diagnoses while I got sicker and sicker was one of the loneliest experiences I’ve ever had. I want to share some of that experience here and to hopefully create a forum for others who are going through similar experiences to connect and share with one another.
I am not a medical professional, so this site is not meant to give medical advice. It’s meant as a space for people with serious and chronic illnesses who are waiting or who have experience waiting for a diagnosis to share our stories, our fears, our hopes and our joys with each other in order to make this process feel just a little bit less lonely.
