“You’re not sick.”
Nothing has been easy in regards to complex regional pain syndrome (crps). The diagnosis, living with the illness, learning to work with crps, traveling, people’s judgements.
Three weeks ago I just got told by my company’s insurance company that I’m not sick, at least not sick enough.
I’m not sure why I expected the process to be easy. A process that had already taken a pile of medical records (two years worth to be exact), explanations of benefits, co-pay receipts, doctors’ notes from three different hospitals, prescription records, and a constant repeated symptoms list to come to this conclusion. Oh and five months!
It took two general physicians five months to conclude that I’m not sick.
I don’t even know how to start to explain my frustration.
