I know how it feels to be in pain, desparate, fed up with doctors... and the medical system in general. 

I've been through the ringer, myself.  I had my tonsils removed at age 5.  My appendix at age 25.  And I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2017.  I've experience back pain that feels like getting stabbed with a knife.  My Lyme disease test results came back with "5 hot bands" when you only need 2 hot bands to be considered Lyme positive.  My Lyme progressed to the point where I had a 102-degree F fever and a case of meningitis (unofficially).  I didn't want to go to the hospital because I knew the only solution would be IV-antibiotics.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. ... They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
