Arachnoiditis is a rare disease. Where I live there is not even one doctor that wants to touch the subject. I have been told that at my age it is even more rare. I was 34 when I was diagnosed with this disease. The doctors told me that I should be in a wheel chair or walker. I have to fight that but what really makes me mad is that they say there is no cure and no medication for it so I am just going to have to learn to live with it. It is dismissed like as if I was a child behaving badly for a piece of candy. I understand that they have a piece of paper that says that they can practice medicine their not god. I know that. I understand that. But please give me hope. I have so many things going on. I am so thankful that I have found this website. Everyone on here seems so nice and caring. Friendships are hard to make when you are constantly down. Big hugs to everyone!!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
