I’m glad I found this forum. Like you, I feel like I’ve been ill forever and just long for one day of feeling normal and healthy again.
For 25 years, since my last child was born, I’ve been plagued by anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I know this has put severe stress on my body and as a result I’ve felt ill for about 12 years. Not constantly, but I have flare-ups every six months or so or when there’s new stress in my life. This year has seen yet another move to another country, more stress and eight months of feeling ill.
The Doctors aren’t helpful and although I’ve been on various medications I’ve found that healthy and stress-free living helps the most. I don’t take anything now apart from vitamins.
Talking about going away to a wellness centre to recover, that would be wonderful! What I have found that helped me in the past is going away with my husband to somewhere remote and peaceful, no technology, just walking in nature and LOTS of resting.
Hope you find a way to recover your health. Please keep in touch. We all need to help each other where we can.BeckybecksParticipant
Thanks for your reply.
Yes I’ve seen Doctors in the past but when tests come back clear they don’t seem to know what to say. Only one referred me for accupuncture and prescribed supplements for adrenal overload. Another told me: “I suppose it could be Fibromyalgia’ but gave no suggestions regarding treatment.
It feels like they don’t really believe my symptoms. So I don’t bother to go to them anymore.
I feel it’s better to talk to fellow sufferers who have experienced similar symptoms.
Where I live there are very few good medical practitioners and no naturopathic doctors at all. I get all my info from Google.
