Just ? For a friend as she has health anxiety it's strange because she's running of on me. Every time she feels weak or a bit unwell which is daily. She automatically gets something to eat to boost her up as she thinks she's diabetic. I go mad a say it's in your head because doesn't matter what she eats as soon as she's ate even a bowl of cereal she automatically feels better so a tell her it's not diabetes no way
Help: Just ? For a friend as she has... - Anxiety and Depre...
It sounds to me like low blood sugar which everyone gets if you haven't eaten for a while. Tell her she can't diagnose herself so she needs to get off to a doctor for tests to rule it out. x
She won't go lol. Probz just her panic disorder. Think she'd no by now as nothing has happened to her just in her head. Can they test in urine x
Show her this link and she might think differently. If she won't go to the doctors you can't make her but it doesn't mean you have to get angry with her. I would back off and leave her alone and stop getting yourself angry or upset. x
Thanks she's been like this 3 months now has a therapist also. But I say with panic disorder and depression you go like that also so hard to diagnose. A think because she thinks it helps her it does x
She's always absolutely shattered and no energy just like me. It's a natural thing. X
What a predicament. She’ll never know if she has diabetes unless she gets her glucose levels tested which is done through drawing blood. I also agree that it could be low blood sugar or something like that. I get really ill when I don’t eat and my glucose levels are just fine so who knows.
That's true. Luke I say symptoms are all similar in alot of things. It's just an automatic thing she does as she overthinks
My body is the same as yours. I don't have diabetes or anything but if I go more than around 5 hours without eating I can feel weak and shaky. x
Thats obvious. Especially if you have anxiety or depression aswell x
No not everyone reacts like that. I know people who can go all day without eating and they are fine. x
Maybe but I'd say people with health anxiety issues don't. As it's automatic thing as soon as you feel weak it's the first thing what comes into your head is a need some food quick x
Same same same. I’ve always been like that even before anxiety. It’s crazy.
