    Anyone else REALLY frustrated with waiting times for a diagnosis?

    I think they're wayy too long. My father called in some time at the beginning of summer to ask when we can go in for testing, and they told him to call back in September to set a date FOR NEXT YEAR!

    Hello, there!

    When I introduced myself earlier, I was on my phone and didn't quite understand I could make my own post to say hello. :oops: Since I typed up a novel in the intro thread I'll try and keep it short. Basically, HELLO. You can all me Gummi for now. I'm 28 years old and currently awaiting...
