That wasn’t a challenge!

Dear life, when I asked if I could feel any worse, that wasn’t a challenge!

The antibiotics definitely aren’t working, and the side effects have me feeling worse than ever before.

How awful I’m feeling makes me want cuddles but I only saw my boyfriend yesterday so I’ll just have to wait it out :(

Constant nausea(is it all anxiety?)

Hello everyone! I’m amanda, I’m 17 years old and I have CONSTANT chronic nausea, abdominal pain, frequent urination, constipation, and loss of appetite. I noticed the nausea started to come on every time I was at dance about 6 months ago but one day while I was at a dance class, I started to feel sick and hyperventilate and the nausea hasn’t left me since. I’ve always struggled with anxiety and panic attacks when I wasn’t younger but I never payed much attention to it until now. I don’t understand why I always feel sick. I went to every doctor, and I have undergone almost every test imaginable. They found nothing except for some signs of acid reflux, slight constipation, and that’s it. I take acid reflux medication and I’m still constantly nauseated and haven’t had an appetite. This is ruining my life. I spent my 17th bday crying while my dad force fed me. Finally, my parents decided to send me to a psychiatrist and he put me on 10mg lexapro. I’ve been on it for a little longer than 3 week so and I feel no different. My gag reflux is also really bad so it’s hard for me to yawn, brush, or even sneeze(I know right, so weird.) This has sent me into a deep depression to the point where I don’t get out of bed unless I have to. I’ve lost 25 pounds—I used to be 125 and I’m down to 100(I’ve lost all of my muscle too.) My parents are so frustrated because they don’t know what’s wrong and they can’t find a way to help me. I just want to enjoy my teenage life again and hangout with friends and eat tasty food. Can anyone help me and tell me what I can do to fix this? I cannot do this anymore. I don’t even sleep.. Thankyou! x
