I Am Worried About My Health

    I have never been the ideal healthy person.

    My childhood was riddled with pneumonia, asthma, and catching every cold, virus or flu that came around. I missed so much school one year, the school district sent a truancy officer to my house. He threatened my parents that I would be held back, even with all A's and even...

    I haven't had a period in over 2 months.

    I have an appointment with a gynecologist on the 18th of this month. Really worried that I may not be able to have kids. No chance I could be pregnant.

    I am always a little worried nowadays.

    . But I am too ashamed and frustrated to do really anything about it. If I run I should wear one of those spine supporting things and the same for my knees. But I can walk for like 10km non stop if I decide to. But when I stop I can't get up anymore and thinking about that...

    my head is tingly, I feel a little groggy at times, my ears feel full and sometimes I hear a low rumbling sound too, my body feels internally shaky. This has gone for over a week now. I don't know if it's anxiety related or not, I've been a tad more stressed lately because of...

    So I usually always try to be healthy

    but always cheated by having a cheat day where I would eat lots of fatty foods and never got anything good always hot heavier. Until last year when my doctor told me I was legally obese. So I changed my diet to even more healthier foods and having that cheat day as my experiment...

    Ever since I started doing shift work (I'm a

    nursing assistant) I have started feeling unwell. I suffer from acid reflux and heartburn, bloating, random regurgitation after eating, fatigue, weight gain, abdominal pain, insomnia, irregular periods and increased anxiety and mood swings. This can't all be a result of working...

    I have shortness of breath all the time.

    My pulse has also been a bit faster and I have occasional nausea. I am also fatigued and have a lot of back tension- when I try to lengthen my back it feels like my spine is cracking. Anybody else ever experienced this?

    I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome

    and Fibromyalgia 6 months ago. I've had to stop working and I'm learning new ways to cope with this illness. I've started knitting and trying to stay positive.

    Some weird stuff has been happening to me

    lately. It's 1am and someone or something just scratched on my window screen. So first off, my window was open about half a centimeter. Not enough for anything big to go through and be strong enough to make a noise on my window. I'm so scared.

    First PAP smear... can't receive a positive

    test. Not something I can deal with right now :/ I don't need a reason to think I have anything, because I'm a hypochondriac and I'm smooth like that.

    I lost 20 pounds to a fad diet,

    and gained most of it back... I guess I should've been expecting it though. I'm more worried about what I'm eating though, I've been eating a lot junk food, and I mean A LOT. Like I would go to the gas station and get up to 10 things and then binge eat it alone in my room. Today...
