I am struggling with chronic health problems. I have been struggling with worsening health problems since 2011, and these have been incapacitating since 2013.
If you’re struggling with chronic illness, what’s a better strategy?
Keep trying to figure out what’s causing this. I was been able to get testing to rule out Lyme, multiple sclerosis, etc. when I was still able to see doctors about this. I have been unable to get any kind of follow-up, lately. I have trouble communicating with doctors because the offices themselves are not accessible, and because words like dizziness can mean one thing to me, just dizziness, and another thing to them, usually vertigo which I’m practically immune to.
Keep trying to treat individual symptoms, in the hope that they will get better.
Keep trying to work through this, in the hope that I’ll accomplish something.
I contacted my doctor about this, and she replied, but she didn’t answer the question. I would really like to know what to prioritize.
