'Twas the night before....

The story of the time right before my diagnosis.

Last year on March 12, 2016, year ago I woke up about 5 am, got in my car and drove 2 hours to my office in Staten Island, NY.  I was tired and had a stubborn sinus infection that didn't want too clear (even though I had been on antibiotics for 10 days and then Dr added another 5 days)  I worked the full day... Although I did notice a few extra bruises that I didn't know where they came from... I figured it was just because I was active at work, bumped into something, maybe from being kneed/kicked by my nieces? At 4 pm I got back into my car and drove two hours back home.  As I was getting undressed I noticed that I had red dots all over my body.  This rash I knew just wasn't normal, I thought maybe it was an allergic reaction to something and decided that the next day, Friday, I would go to see my GP because they have a more broad picture than the ENT I saw for my sinus infection would have. I was completely oblivious of what would come, how could I knew my life as I knew it was about to change forever?????. March Friday the 13th is a day I'll never forget not because it was a comical Friday the 13 with superstitious experience but because it replays in my nightmares...   Find my post tomorrow for the rest of my life changing day by day.
