seems like this (interstitial) could be a way of transmitting to the entire body. (i am a layman making a guess.) with all my other diseases i had been diagnosed with interstitial many years age. who can remember with everything else! at the time of the diagnosis i was being diagnosed with copd, sleep apnea , cpap, oxygen and restless leg syndrome. then came the rheumatoid and psa diagnosis (even though i have had the symptoms most of my life). and of course diabetes, high blood pressure, heart beat irregularities, stage 3 kidney, macular degeneration, glaucoma, sjogrens and if i look at my medications i am sure i can find other diagnosis. (i am a walking pill) and after all this, if a have a small mental issue do you think i will reveal it? i don’t know how i handle all of this. perhaps personality comes into play? yes, i do suffer with pain, have depression anxieties and all the rest.
i am waiting for the day the doctors will take the word practice out of their title.
when i look at all this in another way: IT COULD BE WORSE. we all know that their are many other debilitating conditions . and after all this, i am still in pain, but ALIVE. and I do love you ALL. from one of us suffering souls.
it would be interesting to hear from you about this subject.
