    Good for you drz. What an opportunity to educate new doctors. I wish they could all hear your spiel and encouragement.

    I was diagnosed in Australia when I was a teenager. It took about 3-4 months. It initially manifested with a swollen eye lid. I went to a GP & they told me o should not be so concerned about my looks. I was really embarrassed so I waited several weeks to again seek out medical help. But all in all it went quickly.
    Iím pleased you were also diagnosed fairly quickly. I think itís a shock for awhile & then you find a new normal.

    Sorry for the belated welcome Rob. I think you first posted around 5 days before my kidney transplant, so probably had my head elsewhere.
    Got to echo what others have said - your fairly early diagnosis prevented things getting much worse, very quickly.

    Just want to say hi and welcome to you. Your story sounds so much like mine. I am a 61 year old and had never had anything more than a cold every 10 to 15 years. My family use to tease me that I NEVER got sick! Then in September of last year it hit.
    I am so happy that you had doctors who knew what to look for.
    May your days get better. Just remember to rest when your body needs it.
