So I had a complete physical done, including blood work, and I'm waiting for it to come back, but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I should somehow push for a CAT scan or an MRI...i mean with something in the mind that shifts like this, it seems like it would be logical to check for an organic cause like a brain tumor (although this could just be my twisted logic). I've been obsessed with the fact that I have a disease recently, because I feel really bad, really disconnected from myself and the world, and I'm weak, like I havent' eaten in a long time, even when I have; shaky and muscles are a little twitchy. My eyes can't seem to focus as quickly as usual...i'll look up at something and thne back down and the image seems to shake a little before i can see it. And I'm tired, alwyas tired, i sleep ten hours, i feel like i've slept two. I'm so depressed now...I'm sure I have some disease and something terrible is going to happen to me and the way i'm feeling like this is because I'm going to die soon and i'm getting ready for it in someway. I feel sad around my parents because I can't connect. I dunno, i feel really badly tonight. Sorry for the rambling post just a few thoughts tonight.

I hope all will work out for you. But i feel just like this and im starting to think its all caused by depression and anxiety.

But dont in anyway think im trying to dismiss the feelings. I have them even right now!

I some how know that is this is REAL then there must be a way to fix the way i feel.

But wishes for you. Ill add you to my thoughts tonight.

it can't do any harm to have a cat scan or mri and at least your mind would be put at ease. when i had severe dp/dr in '99, i had a cat scan and there was nothing out of the ordinary. i was able to rule a lot of things out and i think it has helped me.

Well mate I know exactly how you feel, I have the same things almost exactly, I have had blood tests which came back fine, since then I have seen 2 opticians, 2 neurologists and had a CT scan.

everybody seems to think I am physically fine, so whats an MRI going to show up that nothing else can find, MS I guess, so what do I keep worrying about!? MS!

personally I think its all Anxiey related, but sure, get these things done and make yourself feel better and ocncentrate then on the mental aspect, when you are happy that you have been checked out physically.

I agree. It would be a relief if I could find out that I had some sort of brain tumor or I was having seizures or something. I have really wanted to get some sort of brain scan done as well. I have only had bloodwork taken in the past and with the symtoms I experience it seems like there must be something physically wrong with me. My therapist told me that several of her patients have had the same thoughts. But if you have the means to get it done, do it. It will be one less thing on your mind. I may still do it myself. I am probably going to start working with a hypnotherapist as well, just to see if I can drudge up some of the memories that I have repressed. All of the thoughts you were describing though are "normal." I've had them too.
