when you become your "disease"
It never ceases to amaze me how some people choose to live their lives. They are miserable people. FOr some reason, they can't express their misery which usually takes the form of depression and a lot of anger. They don't try to get help for themselves. So it comes out sideways. They start to develop vague physical symptoms.
Pretty soon they convince themselves that there is something physically wrong with them. They go to the doctor time after time. All the tests are negative. Then one day a doctor gives them a name for their symptoms. A lot of the time its some weird syndrome or disorder that a lot of medical professionals don't believe really exists.
Its like the the heavens open up and a beam of light shines on them...YES..I now have a name for what is wrong with me. I told everybody that there really was something wrong with me. They take thier "medical diagnosis" on as their identity. Their life revolves around being a sufferer of this "disorder". Their family's life usually revolves around it too.
Woe to anyone who questions or challenges whether they are really "sick". Thats when all of the anger comes out big time. They make threats. They act out. They manipulate.
What a shame that they are limting their, and their families, lives. Whats really weird is that we have become a society in which there are so many dysfunctional people, in order for doctors to deal with them, they are labelled with questionable diseases. Pharmaceutical companies develop pills to treat these same questional diseases and make a lot of money. What a world
