A Sudden Illness - How My Life Changed, by Laura Hillenbrand

A Sudden Illness - How My Life Changed, by Laura Hillenbrand "I returned home, lay down, and tried to figure out what to do. My psychiatrist had found me to be mentally healthy, but my physicians had concluded that if my symptoms and the results of a few conventional tests didn't fit a disease they knew of, my problem had to be psychological. Rather than admit that they didn't know what I had, they made a diagnosis they weren't qualified to make."

I hope recent advances (XMRV & the Canadian SM neurological classification) make this attitude an historical abberration rather thhan the norm as it is now.
