Health news

Good news everyone! I am officially sick! For 4 years now I’ve been having this terrible painful health condition and the doctors could not found its origin (and therefore they just called it a “syndrome” and kept sending me home).

As you know, last Friday I was at the Stanford hospital for even more tests. This time the preliminary tests came back positive, which means that for the first time we have a good idea of what’s causing my problems (problem located just after the end of the stomach). I will know for sure on Thursday.

Now, I am not sure if there is a cure for my problem as this kind of test is new (the Stanford hospital is the only hospital equipped to diagnose this medical condition in the whole Bay Area), but I find this test to be a big step towards solving it at some point in the future. You see, it’s better to know what’s wrong with you and not have a cure (yet), rather than not having a clue of what’s going on and therefore risking with experiemental cures.

So, today I am happy. I am hopeful that eventually there will be a cure so I won’t be afraid anymore of becoming pregnant and potentially losing the baby if I get one of these painful attacks I usually get because of this health condition. I need to become a mother before it’s too late, as I am turning 33 this May.

E, don’t have kids, I’m sure they will want to rule the world. As for your illness, its good to see that you have some idea of what’s the cause. Take a look at homeopathic solutions, naturalpathic approaches, and of course meditation and self heeling. Doctors have failed for you the past 3-4 years, don’t expect one magical wo/man to have the answers, search out and find the many that care more about you as a person than a patient. BTW, stop being so high strung, my guess is most of your issues are due to your level of personally induced stress of normal stimuli. Why do some get sick, and others don’t? Answer this, and you are well on your way to a long and useful life.
