This is my first time posting like this so I'm a little out of my depth but i felt a need to do it for all you sufferers out there that have probable/suspected Behcet's just to prove there can be light at the end of the tunnel. Finally over 10 years I was diagnosed yesterday after getting the one last major symptom they needed me to. It's been a painful few weeks, but after years of waiting i feel relief that i finally know for sure. It's like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and i know in time it could happen for those of you who fall in to the category i did. I wouldn't wish this disease on anyone or myself but the not knowing was a hard thing to deal with when I had the doubters and people making the "well you look well" comments when I was mentally and physically unwell so now i can finally say to them all it's Behcet's for sure and you were wrong to judge on something you know nothing about. The saying "don't judge a book buy it's cover springs to mind. I just want to say to you all on those really hard days stay strong, believe in yourself and keep the faith it'll happen in time.
Thanks for taking time to read it's appreciated
