When There Are No Answers

Karina Smith Chinese Medicine Prahran

Sometimes there are no answers.

Sometimes you just get really tired and there is no traceable reason for it.

Sometimes you get hit with a downward spiral of apathy, and nothing and nobody is appealing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sometimes old aches and pains in the body that you thought were healed can resurface.


In my experience, the analytical aspect of searching in the mind for answers as to why I might feel really tired, or have a headache, or a painful body is so exhausting and leaves me feeling really flat. And when people try to help, often their first instinct is to try and make suggestions about what it might be. I know from other people who live with chronic health issues that this kind of response from loved ones is challenging to receive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


It just is, and when things arise out of nowhere, we have to do our best to ride the waves. If that means you go offline for a while, or you go inward and quiet that is ok. We dont have to be able to explain the "why" or figure it out. Sometimes there are no answers, it just is. And that is ok. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Sending out enormous love to all of those reading this post that lives with chronic health episodes.
