There's an immunologist I follow on Twatter who has recently - within the last few months - started banging on ad infinitum about she's spent the last 16 years in chronic pain and how she's got endometriosis. No mention - literally not a single peep at all - before about all of this, it's all started in the last 6 months.So my sister was moaning about her Lyme disease again. I told her there is no such thing as chronic Lyme and that her joints are just fucked because the Lyme wasn't properly treated. So she tells me that the parasite can morph into another species of parasite.
Every single test she has had, every diagnostic operation, has come back as negative for endo. Every. Single. One. And she periodically has meltdowns about how she just wants to give up, how awful it is, how alone she is, how her flatmate (who she previously got on fine with) now loathes her. I've been following this bint for a few years and she goes through these cycles - everything is awesome, my life is amazing, I love my flatmate, to everything sucks, my flatmate is awful and my life sucks. A few years back she was all over the bipolar train but I guess Endo is the most popular disease for munchies now
