Paleness on waking

Hello there-

i've been having so many health issues I dont' even know if this is the right spot to post.

The worst part about the whole thing is that it seems like every day I "know" what is wrong with me...But at this point, it could be anything and im not so sure what.

It is 1:45 I had been asleep for about 4 hours. I had the most undescribably terrifying dream. When I woke up, I was scared to death. It was was so terrible all I could think of was "this is what hell is like". I got up, delerious, to the bathroom. I looked in the mirror. I was chalk white. Not only pale as a ghost but I look as though i've been beat up. My eyes are red and puffy...It's just not pretty. As I walk around I notice that I pink up and regain some color in my face.

This has been happening to me for a long time. I wake up from sleep at night or in the morning pale..And as I walk around I regain color in my face.

I'm depressed and fatigued during the day. A doctor diagnosed me with ulcerative collitis that i'm currently dieting to deal with.

But these problems have been happening for years. I don't know what's wrong with me.

My parents take it very lightly when I tell them I need to go to the doctor. They're my parents, they love me I know..But I don't think they know the extent of what i'm going through right now. The best way I can describe to you whats happening to me is: I feel like im going to die. When I wake up in the morning I feel as tho i've been hit by a freight train. I can't function normally in society with these issues. I want help but im not even sure where to start looking.

I look worse than ever. Dark circles and pale fale

what is causing this paleness upon waking. What is causing the fatigue during the day and stomach pain?? Somebody help!
