Lately I have been really down. Any little thing makes me feel real emotional. I have to cry myself to sleep sometimes at night cause of things just seem not tha same anymore. I get dizzy and nausrtias lately and just everything that is on my mind comes bottling down on me, what is wrong??? I dont know what it is, but I just hate the feeling. Any know what I am talking about or what is wrong?
you state symptoms but give no information that would help us help you.
Like your age might be the issue - my impression is of a young girl - so could it be hormonal - either to do with first getting periods, first sex or possibly being pregnant?
Or are you going through some major life changes - family break up or loss, school ending & new unknown life starting or major exams scaring you or moving house to another town or whatever??
Have your eating patterns changed? What is your general health like (same or diferent to before this started? You say this has been lately but how long is that in fact - 1 week, 1 month, 3 months?? Has anything like this happened to you before or to anyone else in your family??
In the meantime you could try some basic "coping" techniques like - when you start to feel overly emotional take some deep breaths, go do something else somewhere else, use imagery so practise imagining a really peaceful scene & keep practising bringing that scene into your mind (start learning this when you aren't all emotional!!) something that you find relaxing & restful something that will help you calm down & feel good. You might also get a dvd or video of yoga which has both exercises & meditation this could also assist you - some of the exercises are also good for nausea.
You might also consider when/where this happens & try to avoid the situation/place if possible or at least to prepare yourself for it if you can't avoid it.
Sorry I didnt state to much about myself. I am 17 and a couple of years ago my parents did go through a divorce. For my brother, he didnt take it as hard, but for me I am still tryin to get over it, I hate the fact that they are seperated and that my dad lives so far away, to me its like I am growing without him. So that is a big whole in my life right now, my eating changes vary every now and then, when I am depressed I can eat anything I just feel nausiated, I have bin havin all thz different emotions for a couple of months now, sometimes I just ignore it and try to put it in the back of my head, other times I just feel so much pain and suicidal thoughts come into my head, I have had a history of popping pills and cutting myself a couple times as well, anything else that you need to know I am here
Angel, I have just a seen a couple of other posts from you (re sex & nose bleeds) I don't know if there are any others but it seems abit as if your whole system is affected so although obviously your family situation is a factor I think that you should talk to a dr (or school nurse or local clinic) about all of the things that are causing you problems as they may be connected.
Sometimes when one part of our body is unwell/upset it affects other parts & then a viscious circle starts & until you intervene to stop the cycle it keeps getting worse.
But that said, you do have to accept that your parents are divorced & if you can not visit your dad you have to accept that too - I mean he may not want you - which is lousy - that happened to me so I know, but at least you had him for a long time or maybe you just have to wait until things alter for him & or you before you can visit, either way you have to come to terms with it & make peace with yourself so you can get on with your life.
Given the bleeding & the pain with sex & the nausea when you eat & the sadness etc I suspect it's all just part of the upset about your parents - in which case you need to see a counsellor but it may be a more serious health issue so you should seek medical advice.
thanx so much for replying and help, it means a lot, I guess the only thing left to do is try and get help or something, but thanx a lot, ttyl!
i think purple is right about everything being connected and has given you lots of good advice i'm a big fan of cbt and hope you can find a counselor that can teach you cbt, but any type of counseling will be a great start for you at this point. Take care and keep posting
