Because I was completely paralyzed when I was 19, I wanted to listen to a radio interview with Leslie D. Michelson about his book, THE PATIENT'S PLAYBOOK: HOW TO SAVE YOUR LIFE AND THE LIVES OF THOSE YOU LOVE. As I listened, the things he was recommending were things that I had learned at 19, many which kept me me alive. What I mean is this: 11 doctors, ranging from emergency room physicians to recommended personal internists.. True, they did say different things-1. It's all in your head (many females, young or old, have hear that one) 2. You're too sunburn. 3. You're just nervous about school (my senior year of college) 4. You're allergic to fruit spay (I was in Florida, orange and grapefruit capitol of America) 5.One hospital was at least close in their diagnosis. They said, "You have polio, but we don't have the ability and equipment to treat you here." They sent me back down to the hospital where the emergency room physician, the first doctor I seen, had told me the symptoms I was having "were all in my head." Believe me, I didn't want to go there again. But the reason I survived was because I listened to my intuition instead of those doctors.
