Have you spent time having endless visits to doctors, referrals to specialists, blood tests, x-rays, ultrasounds or MRIs and being told they can see nothing wrong, you are all good and your body is functioning as it should… but you still have symptoms?
Don’t give up hope! Find a therapist that CAN help you, listen to you, and make a plan to work with you to make a change.
Let me tell you about Carol, age 25
On her first visit, she brought me two lists.
Started in July
Added in October
- Cholestyramin anhydrous – an unpleasant drink taken 3 times a day to stop bright yellow uncontrollable diarrhoea
Her list of symptoms
- Stomach pain (had this for over 2 years
- Nausea – always in the morning,
- Sleeping unwell
- Stressed / anxious
- Little energy
- Dry eyes
- Dry mouth
- Dizzy, fading vision
She had endless doctors appointments and her gall bladder was removed, but she still had the digestive issues listed above. Her symptoms kept getting worse as time went on, with more visits to specialists, but no answers were forthcoming. She came to Jean Therapy in January of the next year.
So don’t give up! Carol found the right person to help her. Perhaps Jean is the right person to help you. You might like to read about the role of stress in undiagnosable illness – it might be worth thinking about the effect of stress on your life.
