Honestly, I'm OK with my suffering. It's not absolutely horrible, terrible, and completely disabling. It does, however, decrease my quality of life. I had come to accept that my life would always be like this until I made my first attempt to seek medical treatment four years ago. I've never found that "magic bullet", but in my heart feel that it's out there somewhere.

The lack of sleep is bad, but like I've said before, I'm used to being very fatigued from my days as an athlete. This time, the fatigue just happens to be caused by something out of my control.

Yes, I do believe, if I do decide to continue and am confident and emotionally stable enough to practice as a PA, I will great (that is, after I learn what I'm doing! everyone says you'll be clueless for the first few years). Having emotional problems is not something others can even begin to empathize unless they've experienced issues themselves.

Most patients, regardless of the reason for the visit, are very emotional and vulnerable (both b/c of illness or causing a physical manifestation of illness). I actually just did a report on a particular minor, common disease. It turns out, that although there are many medications used to treat physical symptoms, they rarely work because the disease is rooted in severe anxiety. Treating the anxiety is actually the best approach, although not currently taken by many practitioners at this point. (most patients don't want an SSRI because they're stomach hurts)
