My Mysterious Illness




The following has been condensed for brevities sake...
.
I've had a low grade fever since June. I have never had a fever, unless I've had a bad cold or flu until now. My doctor tested me and found out that my white blood cell count is very high - 18,000. Thursday I had my blood drawn for another test. If this test is positive, it will mean that something is definitely wrong, and I will have an idea as to what the disease is.
.
I got on the web and looked at the possible reasons that I could have an 18,000 WBC with fever. My eyes went to the worst case scenario, (of course), but when I saw it, it made perfect sense.
.
My intuition says that I have the disease, but I hope that I'm wrong. It's a bear of a disease that I couldn't wish on my worst enemy, (if I had one). :) I'm eager to get the blood test results. I want to know exactly what I have ASAP, but what then? By the way, I still don't have medical insurance. I go to a free clinic.

I said a prayer for you for health and peace. Self diagnosis can make you crazy. Try not to worry.

Campbell Jane,
Good to see you! Thanks for the prayer. It is something that is difficult to diagnosis. I'm pushing my doctor to look into it more.

Long time, no see buddy! Heck, I have a library book on it that I'm reading. LOL

I could be wrong. It could be something simple, but I'm glad the doc is doing blood tests on me. I just want to know.
