Disease and Illness
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Susan, a 56 year old nurse, suffers from difuse body pains. She's no longer able to work as a visiting nurse and she's unable to play the violin. At first her docors had hunches over the cause of her symptoms and over the course of many visits tried hard to diagnose the problem. She feels like she's had nearly every single medical test possible to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. Yet, she's still in pain and doctors aren't quite sure why. Perhaps worse then a disabling physical pain, is Susan's realization that the more difficulty doctors have had diagnosing her pain, the less they seem to care about her...
