I am Capricorn ascendant, which is associated with the body. Chart-ruler, Saturn is mashed up with Neptune.
This combination creates confusion when it comes to anything concerning my body. For example I have little idea my size. Once I was caught wearing shoes two sizes too big for my feet. I have had various things, just as dramatic occur all of my life.
I also tend to have tremendous trouble getting diagnosed whether I am ill or otherwise. You know those people who go from doc to doc to doc? I’m not one of them but I do have to go to the same doctor over and over in order to get something pinned down.
For example when you show up in a hospital after a car accident and your blood pressure is 80/50, the doctors don’t know what to do. There is actually nothing wrong with me when my blood pressure is that low and while they can figure this out after awhile, it cannot be explained. And it’s not like I can help them.
I give doctors the best information I have but it still takes them a week to find out my rib is broken. I mean, I was pointing to rib saying, “It hurts right here, it hurts right here really bad and by the way, it hurts here, right here in this spot here.” Is that clear enough? Apparently not.
Once I did a pretty fair impression of being on my deathbed. This story is in my book. I was told I would be dying imminently. Since the person who said this could see me and I could not see me (no one gave me a mirror!), I figured I ought to at least consider the possibility I might be drawing my last breathes even though I felt fine. This was disturbing.
“You’re going to die!”
I thought I should be more concerned but just couldn’t come up with a sense of panic to save my life.
Then there was the time the arm was broken but I was told the hugely swollen purple thing hanging from my shoulder was not broken.
How about the battery of tests for MS a some years ago (I don’t even have age appropriate lesions on my spine), the bad mammogram(s) that led to nothing.
I think I have a hernia but I really don’t know. It’s almost comical because if I do it is on top my ovary so they have to look at my ovary which they have already done twice in three years!
“Better check out that ovary!!” Not that I have any symptoms but you know. I have to get this stuff checked because you just have to get this stuff checked.
Anyone else have experiences like these? Tell us.
