Hello everyone, I hope my little post finds you all well.
Another brief update, and one which I felt would be positive to those who desperately need reassurance to help their anxiety.
For the past nine months I had been convinced that I had a brain tumour. I kept going back to the Drs because my symptoms kept persisting and in turn, I kept panicking and I fell into a terrible spiral.
I wanted the reassurance of a scan, but I didn't get one. In fact, I came to realise that my soul purpose for visiting the Drs has been for a scan, despite the fact I feared one. This is think was a huge factor for the loop. I couldn't get my definitive 'O.K' for the first time in my life and the loss of control flawed me...
So I could do nothing but trust my GP and follow their advice. They prescribed me something for my ears - which so far seems to be working.... And my anxiety is dropping and for the first time since February, I feel like myself...
I listened to my anxiety and I let it govern me. In fact I listened to it so much that it stopped me solving the problem.
If I said the fear of a brain tumour was gone I would be lieing - my symptoms aren't all completely gone and some times they do come back...but it is early days. I keep on with my new medication and keep looking forward.
I hoped that my experience may help someone else who felt so governed by their anxieties... And to let them know that even at their bleakest they can still take the plunge and take control - even if the outcome could scare them. It's better than being in that dreaded limbo.
