AD, and no it does not stand for Anno Domini

AD refers to the period after diagnoses. But more of that later .
Anyway, on return from Mozambique I basically went to bed. I was unbelievably tired; nauseous; dizzy; short of breath; shaky; racing heart, etc. And so the endless blood tests began, from tick bite fever to tests for cancer; chest x’rays, urine tests, etc. And so to followed the list of numerous practitioners I saw = doctors, physicians, homeopaths, cranio-sacral therapists ……….. According to the majority of them I was fine – all major organs working, no cancer, no nothing! It really should have made me sigh with relief but it only made me more frustrated. I felt shocking and couldn’t function properly, how could I possibly be fine.
I think most of the medical experts, including my friends and family thought I was depressed. But I wasn’t , it was because I was feeling so awful and couldn’t do anything that I was feeling down. I was depressed because medical science didn’t have a cure. I was sad because I couldn’t go up Lions Head or even walk to the end of the block. And worse, I actually didn’t ‘look’ ill!!!
So more tomorrow as time to get a lie down.
