I feel so alone with this

I'm trying to take care of my paracetamol side effects: heart burn dryness overall bowel problems with blood sore throat. Everyone keeps snapping at me, I'm tired physically. I'm trying to look after myself. But it's quite hard I'm 20 and no one gets the pain I have from paracetamol. My mum thinks there's nothing wrong whereas there is. I'm going back to gp tommorow... Everyone keeps thinking I'm making my issues worse than they are. Er well... it is pretty bloody hard to function daily!!! I feel like my family are lost. Dunno how to cope when they certainly don't get it! My sister keeps going on about other people being in pain my mum moaning that I'm not doing enough for myself to help myself. I'm in pain alot!!!! I'm physically tired.... please help? I went to an OT today to get help and will be at gp tommorow. My mum says I'm not able to get DLA because there's nothing physically wrong with me.... listed problems above. She then mentions that if I was in slot of pain I wouldn't complain like a kid. Would be quite. I feel like no one in my family gets me anymore. I feel alone. Everyone avoids me or starts on my back. I'm trying to eat drink and try but it's really hard.

What are you taking the Paracetamol for? Is it a chronic in med or will it be temporary? Sorry your going through so much pain and at such a young age. Family sometimes will be in denial especially if their child has a serious health problem. Avoidance is common because they dont want to think there is a problem. Take care of yourself.

It was a paracetamol overdose I did mention on my other posts too. Sorry just to clear this up.

Oh I'm new here. Totally different situation. Oh please don't give up child. You have your whole life to make things right and many second chances. I'm forty four and wished I had help sooner to make better choices. There's so much help out there for all traumas and situations. Please don't suffer for as long as some of us have. Good for you for reaching out. More respect than I had for myself back then. We will all be here for you.
