A couple of phrases you never want to hear:
We can’t figure out what is wrong with you.
There is nothing we can do for you.
This is the worse thing to hear:
Just Deal With It!
Well here it is President’s Day. Let us celebrate! Well for me it is another day of extreme pain with no answers in sight.
What did I do to celebrate the holiday? I have been in bed all day barely wanting to eat and drinking Gatorade so I don’t dehydrate anymore than I am.
Everyone says to me go to the hospital… go to the doctor… I have tried that. Nobody has an answer.
I was in the hospital 2 weeks ago for 4 days. What did they say? “We don’t know why you are dizzy, we don’t know why you are having TIAs.
So in other words you just have to deal with it.
What a way to live!
This is something many Rare Disease patients deal with.
I am sick, tired, and wondering what is next for me!
Yes it gets depressing! Everyday it is a new challenge.
But when does your body want to say enough is enough??
I am not sure when that is but I know mentally this is so draining which then affects your body even more.
I am writing this to let you know that I am trying! That is all I can do! I won’t say I am fighting! I am trying!
I don’t ask for pity! Never had never will! I am just writing this to show you that the lows are lows. The highs are highs.
I always put up a brave face, say I am doing fine! But guess what???
I am not fine!
