A misdiagnosis that almost killed her - Part one of Anne's story of five years to recovery
Anne knew she needed to tell her story. On one hand, she want anyone to ever go through the horrible medical nightmare she experienced. More than that, though, Anne wants people to understand how trauma thrives in silence. Until we all speak up and are heard, situations like hers have no chance of amelioration or, more hopefully, never happening at all.
