Sorry for the confusing title, but looking at the symptom list here and on other web sites. I experience most of them and some are still hard to understand.
I was wanting to know since the official diagnosis is still pending (I see a neurosurgeon on Thursday), what is a good way to cope with the stress. I used to enjoy playing with my kids, two girls ages 3 and 6, but now when they are just being kids, I get freaked out. Such as they are too loud or I just can't keep up with them due to it is hard to stand up or remember the rules of the game they are playing, etc...
Also my wife and kids are very supportive and understanding, but it seems that most of the rest of my family don't understand even if someone tries to explain it to them. They think that I am lazy or good for nothing since I lost my last job due to the undiagnosed Chiari, and unable to still find a permanent job mostly cause I have difficulty working with computer screens or fatigue. How do I explain to them that this is serious?
