How Many Licks Does It Take to Get to the Center?

35 Office visits
countless emails
4 Phone consultations
9 Doctors
3 Med students
1 Psychologist
1 Psychiatrist
11 Months
>50 Vials of blood (I lost count after 30)
2 Cortisol tests
1 Urine test
1 MRI of brain
1 CT scan of abdomen
2 Ultrasounds: one kidney and one thyroid
~12 X-rays: chest, neck, shoulders, ankle, knee

Diagnosis: CFS and Fibromyalgia with secondary depression
Other things found: kidney cyst, remnants of whiplash in neck, nodules on thyroid, calcium deposit in right shoulder
Unrelated stuff: osteoarthritis of the thoracic spine, sprained ankle, rotator cuff tendinitis (from calcium deposit)
