Cathy says she monitors her vitals around the clock to find proof that “something may actually be going on.” She admits that she repeatedly calls 911 and goes to the ER, has seen over 75 doctors and specialists during the last six months and has had hundreds of blood tests, CAT scans and MRIs in an effort to determine what is causing her to be sick.
“I think doctors are not testing the right thing and they’re ignoring my symptoms,” Cathy says. “Before I even get a chance to utter a word, it’s already presumed that I have some mental disorder.”
