Your Nightmares Become Your Reality 2


Western culture leads us to believe that all illnesses can be diagnosed if you try hard enough. This is not always the case. For many, they struggle while searching for a cause, diagnosis, and treatment. They are left in the gray area constantly having to prove to those around them that they are sick. Their physical appearance may appear to be healthy and normal. Inside, their autonomic nervous system is malfunctioning. The autonomic nervous system controls bodily function such as heart rate, digestion, kidneys, etc. Unfortunately, doctors and modern medicine have their limitations. Just because doctors are unable to figure out what is wrong doesn’t mean they are making it up. “Your Nightmares Become Your Reality 2” is about the indefinite limbo and psychological effects of having an undiagnosed [invisible] chronic illness.
