I marvel at the patience so many sick people exhibit during this waiting game we are all forced to play. How do these people keep it up? I am exhausted! After only 2 hours of sleep I woke up this morning feeling absolutely miserable.

It seems I have to wait forever to get the results of the CT Scan of my adrenal glands and CT Scan of my pituitary gland.  However, I must be patient.  I wouldn’t want an esteemed professional to be over worked on my account.

My biggest fear is that nothing will be found and I will be back at square one.  What do I do then?  I have lost complete faith in the medical system.  Squirt (my family doctor) admits that he doesn’t have a clue.  His words not mine!  You can just imagine the surge of non confidence that flowed through my body upon hearing the words “I don’t have a clue!”  I hope the Old Man has more of a clue.  Will the Old Man too give up if nothing shows up on the CT Scan?

How do people live with undiagnosed symptoms?  Many people have suffered much longer than I have.  I know that.  However I am so sick and tired of being in pain and feeling miserable day after day.  How do the others keep their spirits up?

Maybe 52-year-old Nana’s with undiagnosed complaints should just be slated for the glue factory!

One thing that is very clear in my mind is that in my country the medical system poopoos the adverse symptoms of 52 year old women!  Oh dear I forgot for a minute the words of the Blonde Bimbo and I quote, “most nasty symptoms that 52 year old women experience must be caused by menopause.”
