    My experience with bullying and why I feel it hasn’t gotten better, but actually has gotten worse

    From as little as I can remember I was always the kid that would be singled out by the group and picked on, in responce and due to being a highly sensitive person I would react in extreme amounts of rage. That is until I got to high school where i realized that I was dealing with people in adult body’s with kid brains that could actually seriously hurt me, so I played along with the harassment or just did nothing. I’m sick of this notion that ignorant people and the media portrays that your weak if you get picked on and do nothing about it, that was me and I’m not weak, what’s weak is the person picking on someone for no reason (as if there would ever be a good reason, no). Well after graduation from high school I assumed I would be rid of the pain and mental anguish that I received at the hands and mouths of the bullies, nope, I found other apps where I was relentlessly trolled, thankfully not this one, but the trolling is almost more cowardly then in person. I’d like to rid the world of bullies and trolls they take up to much airspace. To this very minute I’m still suffering from the affects of trolls and bullies from my past.

    Can anyone please help? since glandular fever, for 20 years I've had endless throat infections, chronic fatigue and flu symptoms 😣.

    Can anyone tell me how to get heard by the rheumatologists? Has anyone had glandular fever and been ill ever since? I'm on antibiotics AGAIN and I'm so sick of being sick and no answers 😭. Because I have a mental health issue, doctors want to blame my mind? But this is real! #InvisibleDisability #GlandularFever #Sickness #ImmuneSystem #Pain #ChronicFatigue #ChronicPain #hopeless

    I get to a point when my anxiety is ruling me that I no longer feel hunger just sickness. The thought of food, the smell of food it all makes me gag and I could go days without eating till the anxiety has subsided. I wake up in the night dry heaving coz it’s causing me to have another panic attack. I go to work and can’t control my tears when people ask me if I’m okay, they don’t understand. What would be a minor thing to them is massive to me yet I know deep down I’m being silly. Why can I not control my own mind and my emotions? #Lostinmyhead #Emotions #Anxiety #PanicAttack #Hunger #noappetite #Sickness #nocontrol

    Does anybody else feel like someone is reaching into your throat and strangling you when anxiety hits to the point you constantly feel sick?

    When I get over emotional (mostly when anxiety hits) I feel my throat tighten and I start to wretch alot until eventually I throw up. Coupled with dyspepsia this is nothing short of a daily nightmare. '

    I get anxious, body pumps acid into stomach, I feel throat tighten, feel sick, start stressing that I'll be sick, more acid goes in, I feel more sick, I blow!'

    This is a repetitive cycle. It prevents me from eating and puts me in alot of pain.

    If anyone else gets this how do you cope? Is there something you do to prevent throwing up? #Anxiety #TheMighty #Sickness

    Sometimes all you can do
    is send up a prayer
    At this MOMENT. i am there
    Because Sometimes God is all you got
    So saying a prayer, helps a lot
    Sometimes your strength will truly be drained
    But KNOW GOD can take that pain
    So For that SOMETIME
    that you're standing in
    Here's a prayer for  you my friend...

    I pray for YOU, dear LOVE ONES
    May the Lord grab and hold your hands
    May Everything the devil tries to do
    Be turned into an abundant blessing for you
    For trials that seem
    to linger on
    It's only a Test trying to make you strong
    May those burdens that seem too hard to bare
    Be lifted the moment you recite this prayer
    May whatever it is
    That has you down
    Reach God's throne
    and be turned around
    I'm calling on Jesus...
    to see you thru
    Dear Child of God
    This is for you
    Because SOMETIMES
    you can't pray for yourself
    So I'm praying for you
    In Sickness and Health...
    Yes Sometimes you simply
    Need a hand
    So in the name of Jesus...
    Can i get an Amen?

    Just a thought #Anxiety

    My anxiety plays up at the worst of times. Mine stops me from eating. looking, smelling or even thinking about food makes me want to throw up. I used to let this rule my life as it lead to me eating not much at all ever. I got better (ish). I feel it slipping back. I wasn’t hungry today. I wasn’t hungry yesterday. I threw up yesterday with the panic in my stomach. #Anxiety #Sickness #Neverending
