Her clothing is exclusive, her shoes are one-of-a-kind, her jewelry will make you stutter, and her car will leave you thankful to have been graced with its presence. Her mind is brilliant and her potential is limitless but behind her designer shades are empty eyes and a hurting soul that, just like everything she owns, has been labeled. Krystal was dealt a fortunate hand in life, which has unfortunately backfired through her enduring alienation from those around her. Her spotless silver spoon has repelled almost everyone around her from embracing the person she only wishes they could see.
Raised in an affluent home with guidance, foundation, and impossible expectations to mirror the success of her law-practicing father- Krystal finds herself at the center of judgment and discouragement when she embarks on her journey to study medicine, only to discover that she is the most criticized topic of discussion in and out of the classroom.
Unable to find her voice and forge her own path, she exits the medical profession after an unpleasant encounter with her worst critic, Quarmaine Smith. Confronting failure beneath the futile pursuit of acceptance, Krystal struggles to find her purpose and project her identity. Her complicated and vulnerable evolution of life, love, internal war, and spiritual growth shows her that the more she trusts God, allowing Him to be the sole opinion she observes, the more she learns about herself and the compassion she possess for those around her. Krystal discovers that offering a helping hand to an enemy in the darkest places, as Christ did for her, delivers a boomerang of blessings and lessons she never saw coming.
Misdiagnosed is a soul-engaging story filled with hope, heart, and humility that will leave you viewing the world around you with a fresh perspective. With open eyes and expectations you’ll see, as Krystal does, that God still works in creative, supernatural, mysterious ways.
