Is it stress

Hello everyone, it is Thursday here and I have had a somewhat busy week with appointments and shopping.

Yesterday I went to see the movements disorder doctor over at the Royal (hospital) and came away thinking what a waste of time.

He told me he thinks it is a functional tremor and caused by stress because we all know when they don't have a bloody idea what the cause is it must be stress. He thinks I need to see a Psychologist to explore that side of things.

So really I just need to learn how to cope with it and he doesn't think it will get worse even though since it started it has got worse and has gone from one hand to both hands and one leg.

He also said that he can see that for me the tremor is real, yeah of course it is real I am not imagining this damn thing, what a stupid thing to say.

So how do I feel, frustrated and somewhat depressed, doesn't help that my leg has been bad and I feel like I can't do a damn thing.

I am still exercising each day and I was told that was a good thing, derrrr of course it is a good thing.

Kathy has told me that the following things cause me stress and yes she is right but really these things are just part of life:

Getting Leo to and from school, Having Leo three nights a week,

Worrying about Tasha's life and her practically ignoring her family,

Worrying about Blain and how he is dealing with the problems between his parents,

Being overweight and feeling I have no way of losing it,

Having Tim tell me he wants to go on better longer holidays and thinking we can't because I can't walk very well.

Am I wrong are these things just part of life or not.

Stress, eh? That's all they could come up with? Good grief. Did they give you an MRI, x-rays? People with fibromyalgia still get told its all in their heads, too. How frustrating!

Yeah had an MRI of my brain it showed I had a brain and that's about all but being told its stress just annoys me

Stress is definitely part of life. I have my share of it, and I don't have a tremor so I agree with you that they say it's stress when they don't know what to do.

Well, I think they're just part of life, but that doesn't mean that the whole lot of them don't cause you stress. Sometimes all of the little things add up whether they're part of life or not. And YES, doctors do blame a whole lot of things on stress if they can't find the issue. Apparently I had a "stress" seizure back in college. But seriously, that probably was the reason. . .
