I have been living the whole medical guinea-pig lifestyle for 11 years. More blood has been taken from me than I would even know what to do with (not that I should be doing anything with blood other than having it in my body...). My entire body hurts from the tip of my head to the tip of my toe almost ALL of the time. Obviously, something is not right. Yet all of my blood test results come back as being on the edge of the normal range, or in the normal range.
I carried around one of those diabetic glucose kits for 2 years to consistently test my blood sugar. I am visibly EXTREMELY hypoglycemic to everyone around me, including myself. I get dizzy and faint or become unable to prepare myself any kind of food and become absolutely impossible to deal with mood-wise. However, once you get a glass of juice into me, I'm happy as a clam. Yet, do you think any of my tests ever showed up as being overly low??? Of course not.
Perhaps I am meant to be a mystery for the rest of time.
As far as I can tell, every single person is different. As a result, the levels of certain brain chemicals, hormones, and sugar levels within each body would need to be different. This scale system lead by popular numbers is not good enough. It throws people like me who fit no categories out to the wolves. Trust me...the wolf-filled forest is not a nice place to be with no protection!
I don't deserve to suffer because I fall in that 0.01% of the population.
That is all.
