No I dont see a therapist. Or use CBT. I would like to though. Anything that helps.
You see the problem is my mom doesnt really understand the things I tell her. And last time I tried telling her I was depressed, she flipped out. So, its really hard for me to talk to her and explain everything.
School went better today. I felt really bad all morning, but never got sick. It went away toward lunch time. But, I have noticed, I haven't had much of an appetite the past few days. When I think back, I really haven't eaten much. I dont usually eat alot, but I havent eaten hardly anything compared to what I usually do. We have had things I like to eat too and I just have no interest at all. Strange.
But, at least today went better than yesterday. And my anxiety level was lower today, so maybe thats why.
Hey there......................sorry I have been missing.
I used to get so anxious worrying about the next day at work that I could not sleep and then I was on the merry-go-round of anticipatory anxiety.
I knew if I did not sleep I would not be able to function and Sunday nights were the worse after being off for the weekend. Ugh.
I think it would be very wise for you to see a therapist again and learn some techniques to get off the "merry-go-round" of worry. I know how uncomfortable that ride is.......round and round until you do feel sick.
CBT is a great idea and many members here have had great success with learning this way of dealing with anxiety.
Bless you and I am sending you lots of good vibes.
Thanks. I would be very interested in learning CBT. I have read about how it helped so many people. I think it would help. I will see about reading about it. I am sure it is on here somewhere.
Today was bad again. I got sick again. I went to the school nurse twice. I think I have low blood sugar. I have never had it tested, but I am almost certain. The way I feel, then eat and it gets better the more I eat. The first time I noticed a poster in her office about high and low blood sugar and I had all the symptoms for low blood sugar.
The second time I asked if she could check it, but she couldnt because they have to have a doctors signature saying it is ok for her to test it. But I havent been eating lately and I am sure thats what it was. I got better about an hour ago when I ate a little snack though.
Well, I will read more on CBT, thanks!
Sorry to hear your day was bad again. I am glad to hear you say you will look into info on CBT.
You guessed correct Junebug, I'm 16. I did read that it can be caused by hormones. I think I kind of cause it accidently though. I get anxiety, which causes the upset stomach, which makes me not want to eat because then I feel like I am feeding the upset stomach and going to make it worse. When in reality, not eating is making it worse as well. So, anxiety causes upset stomach, upset stomach causes not eating, not eating causes my sugar to fall, sugar falling causes the hypoglycemic symptoms!
Confusing a little, but it all makes sense to me. So, in essence, I am accidently bringing on the hypoglycemia! Or at least my anxiety is!
But, that works for me...explains everything! I haven't eaten much of anything today, but I did eat supper tonight, so maybe that will help in the morning.
Just hope tomorrow can be the first good (ok) day I have had all week! I just want one good day! Is that asking to much!
I have actually had a bit of an appetite today! I ate breakfast. I had lunch and I am eating dinner right now! Except for being extremely sore(eveyr muscle in my body) I havent had a stomache at all today! First day in a week! Although, I do have school tomorrow...hopefully it will be ok! And continue to be ok since I have my appt. Wedn.
I am starting to get very nervous about it. I am still excited though! I hate going to the doctor though....I know it will go fine. But, I cant help but worry abou twhat he will say to me. It will be so weird knowing I have something. I wont be the mysterious patient anymore...((((BIG sigh)))) Its going to be ok....thats what I keep telling myself!
