1- The Story Of What Anxiety Does

A girl went to the hospital, her temperature was very high, she was suffering from rheumatic disease, her joints were swollen in addition to her severe anxiety, after two days, she asked the doctor how long will I continue in this condition, and how long am I going to spend in the hospital?
The doctor told her that the duration of the treatment would last about six months.
The girl said, do you mean that I won't be able to get married before six months have passed?
He replied: I'm afraid so, and I can't promise you anything better.

This conversation took place in the evening and on the next morning, her temperature returned to normal and the swelling disappeared from her joints, and the depression and panic disappeared from her face. The doctor could not find an explanation for this change, so he put her under observation for a few days and then told her to leave, but he didn't know the reasons for treating the girl.

After a month the girl returned to the hospital in the same previous condition (high temperature and swelling in the joints, in addition to severe anxiety) When the doctor examined the matter, it became clear that her father wanted her to marry a certain person because it would help him at work. The girl loved her father and wanted to do what he wants even though she didn't want to marry this man and so this sudden illness came to her because of her marriage. When she knew from the doctor that she won't be able to get married for six months, she regained her health, and then the disease returned to her when she was getting married again.

The doctor said to her father that there are no medicines to treat his daughter, and if he forced her into this marriage, she may become ill for the rest of her life, and the only treatment is to give her the freedom of choice and this is the best medicine for her. When her father told her that she won't be forced into this marriage, she regained her health quickly and her recovery was fast and steady.

This story illustrates the great impact of psychological pain on human health, as thousands of people fall prey to diseases because of excessive anxiety.
