A Lament

Mysterious symptoms have a myriad of possible causes when one is on dozens of medications and is prone to endless side effects. This is another agony of chronic illness. One must guess, consult, and experiment with one's own body and at great expense (physically, mentally and financially) to try to alleviate or ameliorate strange, new symptoms.

This is just a lament, a sad wail aimed into the air.

  1. I just found your blog and is interesting because i can relate. However, it is not because of cancer or some other chronic illness that is tangible. I'm mentally ill. I find much of what you speak about will apply to the chronically mentally ill person. Have you ever thought of this?
