My Path to a Diagnosis

I've had 127 tests at UM in the past 15 months. I didn't realize this until today, when I was reviewing some test results in my health portal and finally did the math. One hundred twenty seven. And this is just the count since Sept. 24, 2012 -- when UM started using this new portal system. Who knows how many tests I've had since this all started.

And when did this all start, you ask? I trace it back to 2005, when my primary physician found blood in my urine during a routine visit.

Now, as 2013 is coming to a close, I thought it would be a good idea to provide a little recap of my health journey. Here is a clear and straightforward [*cough cough sarcasm alert*] graph that shows my path to a diagnosis -- which, by the way, I still do not have. Enjoy!
