I haven't been online in a while but a while back I posted asking what stressed you out. I read all the responses. I hope things pick up for all of you and you feel better soon.
I am stressed because I do not feel well at all and I have a dr. who doesn't listen and there's nothing I can do at the moment. I am having a hard time adjusting to having 2 metabolic issues. One is Hypothyroidism and the medicine doesn't help but the doctors refuse to raise the dose even though it's a low dose to being with. I I am exhausted every day even if I sleep.
When I am awake, all I think about is sleeping. I miss having energy and that doesn't even begin to describe it. I get dizzy sometimes My skin is dry and I am freezing cold even when the sun is out which is almost always. I have this awful pain where my ribcage is and the list goes on. On top of all of that, I have no idea what to eat because most things make me feel ill. I either feel like I am going to pass out, my throat will close or I will have to leave the kitchen when someone is cooking due b/c of the smell. even if they are cooking something I generally like!!
The thing that stresses me out the most more than anything is not really knowing what I would like to do for a career. My problem is not that I don't want to do anything. It is that I could see myself doing a lot of different things but never can seem to make a choice that sticks. If I try to make a choice, I change my mind the next day. I think that's because somewhere along the way, I lost the confidence I used to have. All I know is I enjoy working with people and I think it's important to help people as well. I also know what I don't want to do.
Sorry I wrote so much. I just needed to vent. I try to relax. I usually watch one of my favorite shows, listen to music, or talk on the phone and it helps sometimes but sometimes there are days when anxiety gets the best of me.
