The most disheartening thing a doctor has told me about my symptoms is that my acid reflux will be slow to recover from and there’s no timetable. I keep the “no timetable” in mind because it makes it so much harder to see a light at the end of the tunnel. If I don’t know when I’ll be well, how can I work? How can I get out of the house, see friends and loved ones? When do I get my life back? Because I struggle with feeling that this moment is forever, this lack of a timetable causes me a lot of anxiety. Does anyone else have experience being "stuck in a moment" -- feeling bad but also not really being able to wrap your head around the fact that you won't always feel like this? I miss the forest for the trees and get stuck thinking: I'll always feel nauseous, I'll always feel anxious, I'll always be sick, things will always be hard. What do you do to deal with this?
