osteopath was very cool and i’m not sure if i talked to anyone?

Posted on March 22, 2006. Filed under: Family, The Dyingness |

I finally went to see an osteopath about the dyingness and he confirms that my digestive tract is definitely shot to hell. It was cool though because he found parts that weren’t working well and where I’ve had a lot of pain but I didn’t mention to anyone else (because I didn’t want them to think I was crazy). Anyway, it was nice to have confirmation that something is wrong. We don’t know what it is, but he’s going to work on revitalizing the organs and making them work again. But it totally explains why, if everything in my body isn’t working, I’ve felt like crap and since it’s the GI tract, it explains my tongue grossness as well.

He did ask about emotional trauma and the only thing I can think of that actually fits exactly into my timeline for ill health was the passing of my grandparents within 6 months of one another. I don’t really buy into emotional stuff affecting your digestive tract, but perhaps there could have been a trigger somewhere. Anyway, I emailed him that so we’ll see what he makes of it.

I was then talking to Brian and he asked if I ever talked to anyone about my grandparents’ deaths…and well, I can’t remember. I must have though, right? I mean there were a few important people that I wasn’t speaking to at that point in life (including Brian and another ex), and I don’t typically talk about things like this when they happen. Not in detail anyway — and I don’t think it’s a be strong thing I think it’s an I don’t want to thing… But I can’t remember. Honestly. Do you remember if I talked to you?

you’re kinda funny..
just to answer your question, you did talk about your grandparents a tiny bit to me, but not much at all..i do think that emotional well being affects your health, so, you never know.
although i don’t think that not talking about stuff is bad..i’m all over bottling it up sometimes (though i don’t know why)

I remember you talking to me a bit about it. Did it happen during the 8 months we were in the MPub, or just before?

kendell — I seem to be the bottling up type too — hmmm… Interesting. Glad I said something to you though… I’ll let you know if this idea comes to anything after my next appointment with him on Tuesday.

Amanda — Phew — I just can’t remember talking about it really. I’m glad you do! You’re right — my Grandfather died the summer before I came to MPub and my Grandmother died over Christmas — so I missed the first day of class back there.

I guess it’s a possibility that it could have had something to do with this whole thing. A trigger point perhaps?

Both of your grandparents dying within six months of each other, moving across the country to a sometimes unfriendly city where you didn’t know many people, being in a stressful, sometimes frustrating Master’s program… You had a few stresses, I imagine.

[…] I just got home from the osteopath’s. You may recall my first visit when he completely won me over and subsequent visits where he has continued to work his magic and to fix the dyingness. […]

i’m going to try and not talk about myself here – but you sound a lot like me. a nightmare of a Master’s program, family loss, digestive track shot w/ doctors saying its’ all mental/stress. you’d think we could do better than this in the 21st? at least you know what your food allergies are. i try to keep it humorous, but when my food allergies are this acute- I HAD to eat Inn & Out fries “Animal Style” that’s with thousand island dressing, and it sent my body into full PANIC mode. Crying & puking over a basket of french fries. ug. – I sometimes wonder how much more “funny” this is going to get?
