Lost: Health and wellbeing, reward offered
The most important thing that I’ve lost is my health and I wish I knew how to get it back. I wonder where it’s gone and why it went. I’d love to know what went wrong and how I can fix it.
A lot of these topics have led me to look back over my life, especially the sentence a year topic. I’ve been looking back to when I got ill at ten and I can’t help wondering why me? Not in a depressed, it’s not fair, my life sucks way; but more in a scientific, objective, curious way. What differentiated me from the rest of my friends. Why did me and another girl get a virus at the same time, she had it worse than I did; but she got better and I didn’t? Why did our bodies react so differently? Why am I still ill eighteen years later?
Following that chain of thought, why do people who get ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, whatever you want to call it, get affected so differently? Why does it take different lengths of time to recover from and why do different people have different degrees of severity? I believe that ME is an umbrella term and that there are probably lots of different and distinct illnesses within the diagnosis; but it would be really helpful if science could start to unravel the mystery.
People look so different; but they’re made up of the same elements, organs and biological structures; but inside it can be so different. I guess there are so many factors which affect people, health, environmental, stress, all affect people in different ways. Just as no two people can be exactly identical, no two illnesses or conditions can be either. That’s annoying, I like science and logic, so I wish people, problems and illnesses could be solved like puzzles.
How can we put people into space and yet still understand so little about the body and what goes on inside us. I know that science and medicine is advancing; but at times it doesn’t feel fast enough.
I don’t remember what it was like to be healthy; but I would love to get it back. It’s probably a case of the grass is always greener; but life would be much easier if I got my health back. So wherever my health and energy is hiding, I’d really appreciate it if it came back. If you find it lying around, you know what to do with it – I’m happy to pay a reward!
