3581773 tn?1349125510 My stomach has been acting up and my anxiety has been getting worse and worse in anticipation for starting college. I have had trouble with supposed "IBS" which I believe it is attributed to my anxiety..when I am stressed my stomach acts up and when my stomach acts up...I get much more stressed. I absolutely dread using public washrooms, whether it be for a number one or even worse a number two. If I absolutely have to go, my anxiety goes crazy..
Avatar f tn Also, you should let your parents/guardians know how you're feeling. When I was in college, I let my instructors know that I had anxiety about speaking in front of people. Everyone of them would "accommodate" me in some way. Usually, it was by letting me stand near the door, or letting me go first. Also, standing behind a podium or projector, or presenting by walking around helps. Having information to pass out to your audience helps too.

506490 tn?1213435364 To gentle51 - You mentioned that you've suffered many of the symptoms I described for 30yrs - can I know exactly how you've managed to overcome some of them, or how you've managed to learn to live with some of them? Because I don't suffer from the condition, I am trying very, very hard to put myself in his shoes & try to understand what it feels like to go through some of these symptoms. Did you suffer the same muscle spasms, tics & tremors, plus aches & pains that my friend does?
Avatar f tn He takes karate 3x a week and doesn't want to go to that either. He got hurt in a bouncy playhouse, fell on his back and injured his sternum about a month ago and wasn't able to compete in karate tournaments, but he is fine now. He yelled at my husband this past evening like he's never ever done before. We grounded him from his computer and t.v. but my husband gave it back the next day.
Avatar n tn This barely-legal-to-drink dude obviously; 1)does not care at all for this poor girl and his kid........and no, i am not a mother......wrong assumption. He does NOT trust her, since he hasn't even left and he is questioning her morals and values as a partner in a committed relationship. What kind of love is that? Someone that does NOT care about missing the birth of his own child, is NOT someone worthy of this kind of commitment yet. Period. 2)the guy is barely out of his teeny-winnie years!
Avatar m tn In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURATION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer.
599170 tn?1300977493 Don't think it won't happen there as well, My oldest daughter (now 13) suffered through this behavior at a nice academy school, however, get him into counseling to deal with anxiety and to learn how to handle this and maybe moving him will give him a fresh start.
Avatar n tn I was so scared to go to sleep that I started sleeping with my mom because I was scared to sleep in my own bed alone. She was really worried about me but in the end all turned out to me anxiety. I have been on meds ever since then...I am 27 now. I still do this every now and then but I have xanax now so I just take some and it makes me pass out. I do tend to have anxiety attacks right before bed which I thought was interesting.
Avatar m tn Can anyone tell me how long Suboxone withdrawals last???? im so anxious to know because I really can't wait to feel back to normal. Thank you and God Bless all of you.
Avatar m tn it would be nice if you could get some support, but family members who have no anxiety issues might not be able to relate as seems to be occurring from your post. There may be others you can confide in though it is something you have to overcome in your own mind - but on the other hand you never know what the effects of someone else's view of something will have on your anxiety.
Avatar f tn i got ultrasound scan done and they said that the lump is my breast tissue and referred me to a surgeon. i am yet to meet the surgeon...would any one please let me know, how the procedure is done, will u be given genereal anesthersia, how much does it costs, how long do we need to stay in the hospital..etc i am feeling relieved to see that i am not the only one with this problem...
Avatar n tn not knowing what to do or how to make it stop. I am a stay at home mom and have always had some anxiety about crowded places, flying on a plane, stuff like that but I get my attacks when I'm sitting at home in my comfort zone, I just don't get it. I don't drink alcohol, have never been a coffee drinker but I do occasionally have to have chocolate and I drink at least once a day caffeine free Pepsi, I am however a smoker.
1697690 tn?1329127238 It was great to read that you felt "some tiny little excitement" in the midst of all your misery. Others have posted about how important it is to eat and stay hydrated - as much as you can anyway; but you never really commented on whether you've been able to do so. Have you been able to eat or drink anything? I hope so. Keep posting - you've been strong enough to make it to day 3 - you can make it the rest of the way.
Avatar n tn I known it's enbarrasing, but you can do it especially if you tell people you can thrust who aren't judgemental, and who are close to you, especially in your family (because anxiety runs in families). Relaxation techniques are also very helpfull. You can take a relaxation session, hypnosis, meditation, imagery, etc. If you can't find any of those let me tell you this simple technique. 1. Breathe in deeply. 2.
Avatar f tn I suffer from low self confidence, social anxiety and panic attacks and part of coming back to uni as a postgrad was to be able to overcome my issues of social anxiety and confidence, I explained this to him and told him that I am not going out just to have fun, but it is required as I have to build my confidence and try and be a normal social person of my age.
2217782 tn?1394367572 My mum and brother are always in their room. They never come out. I have to go in to my mums room if i want to see her. Shes always on the laptop. Her bin is overflowing with empty beer cans. Its lonely down there. Its every man for themselves. I hate it and i pay my way to live there. I mean who would pay to put up with that? Ive stayed in my grans since that incident and im thinking of asking her if i could move in. Im afraid shell say no or think im being over dramatic.

Avatar n tn Hello....I'm new to this site and it's nice to know others are in the same boat. I had my first IUI in January and was disappointed to find out I was not pregnant. I went in for my second with Clomid on Feb 4. and find out on the 15th. Unfortunately, I don't feel any major symptoms except sore breasts, but that is something I go through every month with my period, so it's not reassuring.
4059843 tn?1541422896 i also cant sleep for two or tree days over the holidays because i have to do work. Dammit, there is so much going wrong in my head with school and everything. Yeah i know, a lot of people think im complaining about nothing... To be completely honest, i hate it how people complain they are tired constantly, and they are strictly told to go to bed and sleep for a good 8 or 9 hours... and here i am getting a max of 6 hours every night, sometimes even 3 hours a night, and i don't complain.
Avatar m tn Progress can sometimes be gauged in very minute measurements like posting questions/concerns in this forum, getting out of bed, completing normal and everyday tasks that can seem daunting, etc. Remember, as in life, there are ups and downs in working through this. By choosing to confront this, you have already earned my respect and a HUGE pat on the back. Have a GREAT weekend!
521840 tn?1348844371 Russell Barkley has reported on findings that adults with ADHD have higher rates of car accidents and driving violations than the general population. College students with ADHD are less likely to meet their educational goals, and more likely to underperform in the workforce. The impulsivity associated with ADHD can lead to unwise choices about sexual behavior, relationships, spending, or risk taking. It is also common for individuals to be diagnosed later in life than we used to expect.
598237 tn?1225647072 i work full time in the national health service, have a child without ADHD and i am pretty sure than i do not need to resort to medication in able to get the best out of my son. Maybe you need to look your teaching skills if you feel children with ADHD are a constant disruption - i feel they are fun to be around - and you can learn alot from them. Ritalin is a form of amphetamine why on earth would you want to put drugs in to childs body?
Avatar n tn When this happend I was in college. The only thing it did was make me feel closer to my Mom -- which is a good thing. I gave me the sense of knowing that she was always going to be there for me.
