How do you know when to give up on a difficult task and when you have to keep pushing yourself? I'm working a few hours a week with the client that makes me really anxious. He is probably great, but the circumstances have my anxiety through the roof. Before our meetings, I can't sleep at night and when I do it's just a few hours. I've been waking up physically sick dreading trying to make myself go to work. Even with jobs I like, I usually get nervous and have to force myself out the door. I need the income, and I hate feeling like I failed or have been defeated and letting anybody down, but I never know what I should do. When do you accept when something is too difficult and when do you know you need to keep trying and pushing yourself?
Never found out what caused it. The only common denominator is that both times it happened I had the leftovers of the appetizer that comes with Southwest Eggrolls, burger sliders, and chicken strips. Been ok since. I will have watery or loose stools from time to time but nothing constant like those 2-3 days a few weeks back. I used to have really bad anxiety about colon cancer and of course that thought popped into my head but if my stomah was upset both times I ate the same thing I figure it must be that.
It happens. The people around you could experience the same problems but keep quiet about it. I forget names; I forget names of co-workers that I've worked with in recent years. My brother has the same problem. But the more you focus on it, the worse it'll get. Try your best to know that it's going to happen...even the silliest of circumstances (forgetting a pet's name, a road name/landmark, etc.)
I know that it's difficult to trust any person who says that there's nothing to worry about. Try to remind yourself, though, that physicians train for years. Your physician has likely identified breast cancer many times in the past and has a great understanding of what to look for. You could also have every single symptom for a disease, yet be completely healthy. Your doctor is going to come to a conclusion based off symptoms, their experience, and any tests that are ran.
Today I slipped back into survival mode. For some reason I felt like I was talking funny and so my fear of bulbar onset ALS cam back. So what do I do? Shut up and talk as little as possible, do speech tests that don't really fix anything in my mind.
