This excerpt is from a post written by (patient) Katie Little on Sharing Mayo Clinic ~ Stories from patients, family, friends and Mayo Clinic staff.

Katie asked questions and persisted in researching her condition until she was satisfied with the answers. Her perspective and perseverance are inspiring and, an excellent example to consider following.

Don’t hesitate to research your health problem. The internet helped me better understand the nature of my medical situation which gave me confidence to keep searching for an answer. 3. Don’t dismiss your medical problem because you are doing everything right from a health and wellness perspective: Your issue, like mine, may be congenital and it is important that you seek help.
