Anonymous asked: I've only just started following you and I think this tumblr is great! I feel guilty for following though because my 'condition' is not as bad as others on here, but can anyone share their frustration in doctors not being able to find out what is wrong with you??? I am 20, female and have had severe nausea for 2 years in my upper stomach and have had so many tests done and no specialist nor doctor can find out what is wrong with me. Ugh can anyone relate??
Hey there! I’m glad you like it, and I’m really sorry for my current inactivity, sometimes blogging about illness can be pretty stressful.
But hey, it doesn’t matter how severe your condition is, everyone’s welcome here <3 And don’t worry, I think quite a few people can relate, and I know how awful it is. I was 14 when I started to get really ill, I was missing loads of school and I could hardly do anything, I kept going to my GP and she told me every time that I was just ‘being a teenager’.
Eventually, I went to the hospital and found out I had a kidney disease that I really needed to be treated for.
It’s horrible when you know there’s something wrong, and people aren’t listening, and I really hope you find someone who will listen and take you seriously, because it’s not fair you should have to suffer without knowing what’s wrong.
And as for tests, sometimes they’re just not looking for the right thing. Just keep persevering!
I wish you all the best <3
