Dear OTM,
I’ve been dealing with something for awhile now, when I was 17 I got diagnosed with a disease, it’s not curable. I feel like I died when I was that age and I have just been living life because I have to. It makes me depressed and I have no one to talk to about it. I’m scared to go back to the doctors cause I feel like they are going to tell me something bad. I haven’t been back since I found out. If I were to go my heart would start beating really fast and I get teary eyed. I didn’t want this and now I’m stuck with it forever. How do I deal with something that I can’t control? I feel like this is taking over my life. Advice please

Dear Sacred,

I am so sorry. This sounds very serious and I completely understand your fragile state of mind.
You say it isn’t curable, is it controllable? You say you got it at 17 how old are you now and how long have you had it?

You really must go back to the doctor ask questions. you have have answers. I know you must be so frightened but our minds play trick on us at times making things much worse that they really are.

Please go back and speak to your doctor. I am sure it will help. Ignoring something serious does not make it better and has every chance of making it worse. Please remember medical science changes day by day, so hopefully they will have better news this time.

Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
