Diagnosis Frustrations: A Series of Thoughts, Feelings, and Rudeness

There’s nothing wrong with you, you’re perfectly healthy. Everything’s coming back normal. You seem fine. *continues on to imply that you are faking it or making it up*

Listen, obviously we wouldn’t be here if we didn’t think there wasn’t anything seriously wrong. I know my body, and something isn’t right. This just crosses one possibility off of a long list of others.

Feelings: Angry, frustrated, confused, hurt, determined, optimistic

There’s nothing more we can do for you (i.e. they have no clue what’s causing you to feel ill but would never admit it)

Just admit it, you have no clue. You may be a doctor, but you don’t know everything. It’s okay to admit that you don’t know what is wrong, no one is always right.

Feelings: Disappointed, hopeless, exhausted, lost

You’re just depressed, anxious, (whatever other mental illness that would fit). Were going to put you on this medication fro anxiety and hope it makes everything go away.

Was all of it just a hallucination? Maybe they are right, what if it really is just a result of mental illness? No, I know what I’ve been experiencing it can’t all be fake. Can it?

Feelings: Confused, uncertain, trapped, depressed
