Jen's neurologist was wrong and failed to listen to her symptoms. He should have run a Lymes panel, tests for NMOSD, MS, Transverse Myelitis. He should have done MRI'S of the Brain and spinal cord along with a spinal tap. I had a similar situation happen to me. Was sick with a 48hour respiratory/ gastrointestinal virus. Two days afterwards I was dizzy all day long. I could not think straight and my words would mash together or I could not recall a word I needed to use. I was in terrible burning pain that ran down the base of my neck to the end of the rib cage and out along my back like angel wings. The first neurologist I saw did a brain MRI and a lumbar tap. He lied about the results of both. Said they were normal and sent me to PT which I failed. I became my own patient advocate as that I was an RN before all this hit me. I contacted the neurosurgeon who had done my lumbar laminectomy back in 2008. Fortunately, I had to get an MRI of my neck which showed lesions that ran from C2 to T4 on my spinal cord. I even got ahold of my brain MRI and my lumbar puncture which both had abnormal findings...lesions scattered throughout the brain and WBC's, along with a few RBC's and gram stained monoclonal cells. I went to another neurologist and he ran tons of blood work, looked at my MRI'S and by that time I had developed Optic Neuritis in my left eye causing partial color blindness in regards to shade differentiation. My legs were so weak I was using a walker. My arms were so weak that I could no longer lift more than 10 lbs. Turned out, I had Meniere's disease, Neuromyletis Optic Spectrum Disorder and later on developed MS as well. Later on I developed a subarachnoid cyst which had to be surgically removed and during the procedure it showed my spinal cord had atrophied. It was also twisted anteriorly to the left and nothing further can be done to correct it. So I stay in constant pain but post a drug called Lemtrada, my symptoms, especially the banding which would keep me from breathing.

This 53:32, listened to 1/19/19, shook me to my core and reminded me of who I am - a survivor. I set upon the path to forgive the monster of my past in 2009 and realized how very much I may have extended the forgiveness to that monster, I have never truly forgiven him, nor myself for allowing him to do what he did. This podcast struck me hard in the chest with that one single realization - I didn't give permission. I need to forgive myself for carrying the burden of "letting" him do what he did. I have faltered in my journey to move forward and have allowed life to beat me down. All the thankfulness we need in our souls, all the forgiveness we extend to others, we need to do for ourselves. Thank you.
