A very rare disorder.

You feel the pain, but there is no cure.

You experience it, but there is limited research,

And no one wants to be in charge.

So many people that get affected,

So many medicines that have been collected.

So many symptoms that you cannot count,

So many… so many… but no one wanted to take account.

Nervous system and autonomic system are just the basics,

The basic symptoms that you have to deal with in your daily basis.

Your blood, your heart, your brain, all of it are affected completely.

It affects you physically, mentally and emotionally.

Some people are dying not because of murder,

But they are dying because of this disorder.

A disorder that affects more women than men,

But the pain and the symptoms are all the same.

The symptoms can go away,

But the disorder will stay.

No cure, limited research and barely any funding that it seems like it never existed.

A dysautonomia, an umbrella disorder, and rare indeed.
