Will I Ever Know?


It can be extremely frustrating only knowing you have a serious issue and no name for it. No definite symptoms to associate with this monster you face. Having to look at the baffled faces of specialists every visit as your tests return normal yet you know something is wrong inside your body. And let me tell you don’t let anyone say that it’s just anxiety or something silly YOU know your body.

So what do you do now? Well I experienced this and the first thing I honestly did because at the time I didn’t know what to do was panic. By using breathing properly and using visualization one can avoid this. Breathe in every 5 seconds and out every 5 second and close your eyes then think of your favorite place and slowly immerse yourself in that setting as if you were actually there. This should lower your blood pressure and heart rate if you practice it regularly. Yoga and Tai Chi are also great to get into to reduce stress and promote wellness. If that doesn’t work I’d go the medication route and asked to be prescribed something for the anxiety caused by the not knowing, by the fear of the unknown that has always manifested in human beings it’s natural.

So remember when you don’t have a diagnosis don’t panic it may mean things aren’t all that bad. Don’t think like a big pessimist and you will be ok. It’s all about thinking positive and continuing on with life until you know what’s wrong. Once you know that something IS wrong then you can begin investigating until then it’s best not to speculate! So enjoy your life and enjoy 2015. I hope you all have a great time and a healthy New Year.

  1. I totally understand!! It is so frustrating to not have a name…people look at you like you are psycho or making stuff up!!

  2. My brother has been going through that lately and it is so frustrating that I can’t do anything to help. I know from my own experience that you know your own body better than anyone. It’s so easy for everyone else to just shrug off things, but they aren’t the ones living it. I wish I could help him and you. Take care.
