Absolutely. The medical profession is a mess in many cases. I’m American Indian and so receive tribal healthcare, without which I would have NO healthcare. I have very little choice in provider and ABSOLUTELY distrust my PCP. She doesn’t listen to a word I say; as if I don’t know my own body. It’s maddening. So I can’t even imagine what you are feeling. And you ( IMO) have been totally disregarded and mistreated (literally). I wasn’t suggesting you didn’t have every reason to be feeling exactly as you are. You should pursue action. And I wish you the very best. My best friend from childhood was stricken by Bell’s in 10th grade. We share a birthday and turned 43 last July and she still experiences facial paralysis and apparently always will.

It has been debilitating.

I wish you the best.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
