  1. I there I was DX with Ulcerative Colitis in 2002ish, then DX with POTS and tachycardia... At one time ,the dr.'s also thought I had fibromalygia or Rheumatoid Arthritis.. so YESSS

I was walking into work at Walmart Pharmacy and was not feeling well today, so I decided to use my handicap tag and park a bit closer today. Well, this women comes over to me and says "This is a handicap parking space." I reply saying that "This is a handicap tag." The tag was not blue, but red because it is temporary and my doctor re-evaluates me every 6 months. The women still did not believe me and went to the customer service desk and then went to find a manager. I suppo
